Off the grid

In my travels, I came across several communities that are living ‘off the grid’, meaning that they are not tied into the telecommunication and utilities infrastructure that so many of us take for granted. Instead, they take advantage of the renewable resources of wind and sun that many would have us believe are far off delusions. My question is why these communities of renegades can fashion these mechanisms together in the middle if the woods, but we’re so slow to figure out how to do it within the city limits?
