Among the Hidden Wonders Of World…
Lasqueti Island in British Columbia, Canada is home to more than 400 people, all of which who happily live there off-grid. The island has developed a little community for the residents and now has a pub, cafe, and a store. Most homes are solar powered, and not connected to any municipality by any means.

On Lasqueti, a community off the coast of Vancouver Island, around 400 people live completely off grid, says a documentary by Global News’ 16×9. Lasqueti Island is off grid, literally. It is not connected to BC Hydro’s power infrastructure and many residents rely on solar panels to generate electricity for their homes. The island also boasts a pub, a cafe and a “free store,” where you can pick up whatever suits your fancy, without handing over any money at all. Kurt Cehak, 64, has been there for over four years. His drinking water? It comes from “a creek up the hill.” No filters, just all-natural H2O.
