I have to agree about candlelight, very soothing, natural and just plain cool. I'm currently looking for a nice oil lamp for those long nights I seem
to always be doing.
Sounds like you need a solar panel or wind turbine and then you could power a 12v fridge like a caravan type. It's just a small compressor that needs
the energy, and with a 1w led for a light if you really needed it. Maybe modify a small garden solar lamp that is located outside but wired via a
switch in the fridge, power comes on only when you open the door so there would always be free light available. Solar phone chargers are readily
Go on, do it! Go off the grid.
No TV here either, not for 15+ years.
I remember as a kid having a great time in powercuts. The creative skills of kids with no buttons to push or screen to stare at is almost unimaginable
I love the night.
