Learning to install solar, and to live off grid

We have two discussion groups (ok, so we have more than two) that help folks trying to go off-grid. One is aimed at helping you design and install your own solar power system, the other is aimed at learning to conserve, and live in a off grid friendly manner (energy conservation, cooking, gardening, and more). Check them out, and see if they are helpful to you. You’ll find a few thousand friendly folks with similar interests.
