Here’s an off-the-grid solution for your rural community. Build a small house-size structure, doesn’t have to be fancy, just centrally located... with Tesla solar panels. Create your own self-sufficient community center and you’ve made a space for meeting, eating and communing together. It’s also a safety zone and if built right, a safe place to weather storms, flood and earthquakes together and not reliant on any utility, business or government for service or funding.
