Off-the-grid is a system and lifestyle designed to help homeowners function without the support of utility services. Carmen Carr’s new listing in Russel Valley, Truckee CA is just that, it’s completely self sufficient without the use of any utility districts. The owner Chris Worcester began his adventure of living off the grid in 1977. Like other solar pioneers, he found that resources for solar equipment and training were meager, leaving ample room for innovation by necessity.
Now, 40 years later, his original 233w solar panels still provides the electricity for his home at 16713 Greenlee, which has grown from one room to an extraordinary three story home with an attached passive solar greenhouse. To read more about Chris, click here.
