In want of watts: How and why people go off the grid

November 25, 2014

Canada Research Chair in Innovative Learning and Public Ethnography Phillip Vannini discusses his new book and film on off-grid living with CKNW host Jon McComb. They cover the challenges of going off the grid and the benefits, as well as Vannini's motivation to pursue this project. 

"It's a very rewarding lifestyle," Vannini says. "As challenging as it is, it's something people feel great pride in."
