Off-Grid Houses Of The Future?
As we can all see, humanity went through a phase of evolution where we got into centralization. However, Michael Reynolds expresses his belief that this system of doing things (especially when it comes to power/electricity) has become “archaic,” and for 40 years has been building homes that demonstrate what we might do instead.
He makes the analogy that a house hooked up to the city’s infrastructure for all its needs is like a person in a hospital hooked up to life support. He has built a great many homes across the world that he believes provide us with a better way of living – and a better quality of life.
“An earthship is just like any other home, but it utilizes sustainable construction techniques so that it doesn’t need to be connected to the grid.” It:
- Captures and recycles all its own water
- Produces its own food
- Generates its own electricity
- Provides its own heating and cooling (not using the electricity)
