Who is off grid in any way- as in propane tankless water heaters, solar, wind, water catch systems, etc. Please tell me your pros and cons of what you have or projects you are wanting to do.

We are looking to buy our land within a few months and begin to stock pile what we wil need over the summer including appliances and roofing etc. I've been researching but there are so many options and solar seems sooooooo expensive.

If you have water catch systems what do you use the water for?

I'm thinking a propane tankless water heater. And propane stove/range. But what about electricity for lights and whatnot?

We were going to do a green roof but it sounds like a metal roof would let us do a water catch system which I love.

Getting a little overwhelmed but super excited. Cob house here we come!
