Original newz story - Click here

The world is constantly evolving, and it’s not always for the best. Being self-sufficient within the home is like being in survival mode and it means you are always one step ahead with preparedness than the majority of people. The supermarket, the water supplier and the power grid, are you prepared if they all went down tomorrow? Self-sufficient living is a more organic and enriched way of living and it means you don’t have to depend on anyone but yourself.

As well as independence, self-sufficiency also means a save on household costs like electricity and water. It helps makes a difference to the environment and increases your chances of survival in times of crisis.

Going self-sufficient within the home can seem overwhelming because it’s the minority that currently takes this survival step of independence. Here are some solutions that you can do to help you on the road to a totally self-sufficient life and self-sustained home.

Solar power is an affordable energy source and available for most homeowners. As long as your home has the correct conditions for catching the right amount of sunlight, you can power your whole home on solar power entirely.



Rooftop panels or standalone panels are the two ways to capture the sun’s rays for solar powered energy. Rooftop panels are located on the roof of your house and are available depending on the amount of shade and sunlight your home receives.

Standalone panels can be used if rooftop panels are not suitable for your house. They can be stationary or fitted with a solar tracker that follows the movement of the sun. This makes the panels absorb maximum power.

There is also the option to power your home through wind turbines which can offer sufficient energy to power an average sized home. However, generating power this way is a lot pricier than solar panels. If you like the idea but you’re not ready to invest in a professionally installed wind turbine just yet; you can create your own self-built wind turbine that will help you take that first step towards self-sufficiency.

Having a self-sufficient water system is a great way to have independent living and also save the planet at the same time. With a huge drought currently occurring in Africa, water is valuable. There are two main ways of a self-sustained water system. Re-using rain water or installing a water storage tank.

Re-using rainwater can be done by drilling a well. You could have the well of the pump powered by solar or wind energy in order to complete your totally self-sufficient water systems. If drilling a well isn’t an option, you could always have free standing barrels that collect rainwater. This water is not safe for drinking, but it can be used for watering the lawn or washing the car.
