So, as you know, we are going off the grid, that means no
No more comforts of flipping the switch for anything.
Well, part of me is sad because I so love my comforts.
When I returned from India in 2008, I vowed to have
running hot water, electricity, and a good road. I will be having 2 out of 3 at
However! I also adjusted to having no electricity in India for a year.
What I experienced is a disciplined life, routine.
I have purchased
a 2 Kva generator made by Ryobi at http://www.makro.co.za, it can
power anything up to 2500 W. (my super blender is 1200W : yay!)
We also purchased a small solar kit from Midlands Solar Sales in
Pietermaritzburg which means we will have 4 LED lights
and 2 cell phone charger for our cell phones.
We won’t be in the dark, we will have a gas geyser which
will supply our hot water.
Items that cannot run on solar : dehydrator (which I just bought and now must sell),
electric blankets, infra red lights, fridge, tumble dryer. (so, I am selling these items.)
Going off the grid is going to take some getting used to.
I will go through a adjusting period of just going with the flow,
forming a new routine of life at Satori.
Am I scared ? Yes, for sure.
Am I excited? Yes, I have waited 7 years for this.
Am I uncomfortable? Yes, that means I am growing into a stronger me.
I will keep sharing my journey…….with you.
