This year Off Grid Weekend will take place August 14 - 16.
Going off grid can mean a lot of different things but to us, it means using alternative sources of energy rather than connecting to an electrical grid (ie. avoid use of the lights or outlets in your home). How you choose to spend Off Grid Weekend is up to you! Feel free to go on a camping trip or spend a few days under your own roof, we just ask you to experience 48 hours sourcing your own energy.
Nope, but you’ll realize charging without access to an outlet becomes more difficult. Hint, hint: BioLite products provide a great alternative for charging off grid.
Through Off Grid Weekend, we aim to heighten awareness about the opportunities provided to us when accessing energy is easy and what happens when it isn’t so easy. It is also a fun way to celebrate energy independence!
It is really easy. Click Take The Pledge above and share your reasons for going off grid. Be sure to tag #OffGridWeekend and invite your friends to do the same!
