Blair McNeill talks about taking his Castlemaine homes off-grid
Show Notes

Faced with the prospect of paying about $60 000 dollars to bring electricity to their block, and their home (pictured) near Castlemaine in Victoria, Blair and Linda McNeill elected to pay about $75 000 to go off-grid and now with battery back-up they enjoy a surplus of power.
The set-up cost included an emergency generator, which Blair said they had never had to use even though Castlemaine is in the one of the colder parts of Victoria.
All their heating and cooling, along with the other power requirements of running a household,and a large shed, are sourced from the solar system.
