Powering Down: Exploring off-grid living in Cook County

Powering Down is a new series on WTIP taking a look at off-grid lifestyles and homes using alternative energy in Cook County. Art and Beth Kidd claim to be among the first people to choose wind and solar power in the area and share their experiences of living off-grid for several decades. They talk about the early challenges, the growth of green technology, and the adaptations of a daily routine that come with "the simple life".
