Offgrid Tech has been outfitting missionaries with solar electric systems since 1976. All our staff have overseas missionary experience and are familiar with the needs of those on the field and the equipment best suited for these applications. We have been an integral part of Ethnos360’s training since 1990. We have expertise in solar electric systems, AC and DC equipment, water purification, LP gas, plumbing, water pumping, etc. Offgrid Tech also publishes “Tech Tips for Living in Remote Locations” which is in its 8th edition and covers all these areas of technology. We manufacture and customize equipment for missionary living and also provide email, telephone and in-person consultation. At times, we are able to setup and upgrade installations on location.
