Taking energy from the grid when necessary and returning any excess energy produced, almost-off-the-grid homes functions on a fraction of the energy required by most houses, and additionally are more comfortable, healthier, quieter inside, and far cheaper to operate. As energy costs continue to rise, the almost-off-the-grid house proves its worth.
