It’s been a chaotic time and that’s caused a high demand for sustainable, off-grid and alternative energy property. Maybe you didn’t know what the next year, next month, or next day would hold. Maybe you were worried that you couldn’t make it to the store to put in new lights or to get more food. What if United Country told you about a house that could change you and your family's life and cause some worries to fade away? United Country Real Estate’s Alternative Energy Properties and Self Sufficient Farms for Sale feature real estate with renewable energy production capability as well as properties powered by
renewable energy sources like hydro-electricity, wind energy, solar and geothermal energy.
So, what is an alternative energy property? It’s best characterized by an energy-efficient design and technical features which enable it to provide high living standards and comfort with low energy consumption and carbon emissions. Traditional heating and active cooling systems are absent, or their use is secondary. Low-energy buildings may be viewed as examples of sustainable architecture. Low-energy houses often have active and passive solar building designs and components, which reduce the house's energy consumption and minimally impact the resident's lifestyle.
Now, what is a self-sufficient farm? A self-sufficient farm is defined as growing your own, making your own, selling your own and baking your own. This basically means that you don’t rely on anything man-made, but can live off the land and can provide for you and your family without ever having to go into society. Many people can choose to live this lifestyle while also being a part of society, going to the grocery store and still going out into town. Many people want to have this lifestyle ready in their back pocket, or love it because of instances like COVID-19 or other undesirable life or societal events.
There are many benefits when it comes to living a self-sufficient life or owning an alternative energy property. Not only does owning one of these properties benefit you, but it also benefits the environment, other people, and can help contribute to a better overall health of the world. The most common renewable technologies include: solar (photovoltaic, solar thermal) wind, biogas (e.g., landfill gas/wastewater treatment digester gas), geothermal, biomass, low-impact hydroelectricity, and emerging technologies - wave and tidal power.
As previously mentioned, there are environmental and economic benefits of using non-renewable energy. This includes; Generating energy that produces no greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and reduces some types of air pollution, diversifying energy supply and reducing dependence on imported fuels, creating economic development and jobs in manufacturing, installation and so much more.
