MAUI REAL ESTATE
In the Huelo and Honopou area of Maui's north shore, many self sufficient homes are located down remote country roads with no electric or water service. These communities have learned to live with what they have, and what they have is an abundance of renewable resources. Rainfall is well over 50 inches per year, with much of that coming down in the early morning hours. Rainwater can be captured from metal roofs, and channeled to holding tanks, where it is then pumped through the household system by means of a pump and captive air pressure tank. Less water is used for irrigation in these parts, yet tropical plants thrive in the mild and humid climate. The gentle tradewinds are strong enough to supply many homeowners with plenty of kilowatts of power for their household needs. With a pioneering spirit, whole neighborhoods have already embraced what is currently a green trend in other parts of the country.
As you can see, off grid homes are just like other homes for all intents and purposes, though more attention is paid to using energy saving fixtures and lighting, and utilizing the natural cooling effects of the tradewinds. For more information please inquire. Off-grid Maui home buyers can be on HGTV!
