[Ed. Note: SGT Report reader notes: This is a BOGUS, (fudged facts) story. Florida has nothing against OFF GRID living, as long as you’ve got a WELL that’s been “tested”, and you’ve got some “approved” sewer system. (Septic tank, or other “health regs approved system).]
from Ready Nutrition:
Living “off the grid”” is a rather common thing in Florida, but now laws are threatening these people’s way of life. It is now illegal for them to live “off the grid.”
Robin Speronis a lady who chooses to live off the grid in Florida loves being independent of the city’s water and electric system. But, a few weeks ago officials ruled her home to be illegal! These officials cited the International Property Maintenance Code, which mandates that homes must be connected to an electric grid and a running water source. This means our dependence on the corporate world is mandatory. We have no choice, doesn’t sound like we’re so free after all no does it? Robin has been self-sufficient for quite some time now using solar energy and rain water. In the end, she was found not guilty of not having a proper sewer or electrical system but was found guilty for not being hooked up to an approved water supply, How crazy.
