In its most simplistic definition, “off grid” living means being disconnected from the public power grid. Off grid living, by itself, is not technically illegal. Producing your own power is off grid living and perfectly legal. Growing your own food is living off the grid, and legal. Building your own home in the country while not being connected to the power grid is off grid. So is raising livestock, building a greenhouse, planting your garden, etc. All legal. Now is the time to Live Off-Grid.
Boise’s geothermal heating system is the largest in the U.S., but experts say its success could be replicated almost anywhere.
In the early 1890s, when Boise, Idaho was booming thanks to a gold rush, a local water company discovered something else east of the city: hot water bubbling up from beneath the Earth’s surface. The company built a wooden pipeline to transport the water to a nearby neighborhood, providing heat for several homes and businesses. This marked the nation’s first geothermal district heating system, which is still in operation today.

Why Go Green?
Sustainability and building vibrant communities is at the core of who we are as a city; recognizing and supporting Green Building projects is one more way we are redefining how we continue to develop our city. By providing a guide for developments focused on energy efficiency, environmentally-friendly materials and conservation, builders and developers interested in going green will not only be a part of the city’s commitment to sustainability, but will also receive planning and development initiatives and project recognition.
What is the Green Building Code?
The Green Building Code provides a roadmap for builders and developers interested in incorporating sustainable, energy efficient components into their buildings beyond the minimum requirements of the current code.
