Off-grid living: #IWouldMiss


Living off-grid: What would you miss?

What does off-grid living mean to you? At Flogas, we surveyed a cross-section of UK residents to find out their views on escaping to the country – as well as what they would miss if they adopted the rural lifestyle. The results are in, and we can now reveal that while a significant 85% of us like the idea of ‘escaping it all’, half of us fear that we would miss our smartphones within one week. Surprisingly, there was a misconception that off-grid living = no hot water, with almost 50% saying they would miss hot water before seven days were up!

The good news is, as society and technology evolve, it’s becoming easier and easier to have the best of both worlds: a quieter, off-grid way of life, AND your creature comforts. LPG is the ideal fuel for rural homes – allowing instant access to heat and hot water, so you’d never know you were off the grid. Not only this, but it’s cleaner and more secure than oil, coal and electricity too. And with more UK depots than any other LPG supplier, you can trust our nationwide network to deliver, no matter where you live.
