Traditionally, off grid is the term describing life lived without connection to the electrical grid. Often using solar panels and batteries to supply electrical needs. Being "off grid" can also include being disconnected from town water supplies and sewer systems. As most off grid homes exist in remote places, the former is the still the common term.
