Powering our Tiny House, The SolMan Portable Solar Generator: 40 miles from a major town, our tiny house doesn’t have access to a “grid” of any kind. No gas lines. No power lines. No water lines or sewage system. We’ve had to figure out our own solutions for each of these utilities. Park County, Colorado gets an average of 246 sunny days each year, so solar power was an obvious choice for our electric needs. (Good nitty-gritty article!)
If you don’t mind getting a little bit dirty, you can visit Brussels’ entrails. Underneath the city lies a 400 km long sewage system of which you can visit a short piece. The Riolenmuseum (sewage museum) tells you all you need to know about subterranean Brussels, where every day thousands of gallons of water pass through.
