2017 was a very slow year for us at Move Beyond the Grid. We are hoping to change that in 2018.
As with any grass roots non-profit organization, it takes determination and funding to make it work. While we have the determination, we do not have the funds. Move Beyond the Grid is an expensive project. The cost to transition an already existing average home in Mississippi into a Sustainable home is around $25,000- $35,000 based on quotes obtained from solar companies, appliance companies, as well as window companies for a full transition… And that cost is just for transitioning energy needs.
We need help with fund-raising. We have a new strategy that we hope will encourage others to help us. What we are proposing will compensate those who help us secure donations. If interested please keep reading- Below is a Copy of our ad on Craigslist:
