Off-the-grid is a system and lifestyle designed to help people function without the support of remote infrastructure, such as an electrical grid. In electricity, off-grid can be stand-alone power system or mini-grids typically to provide a smaller community with electricity.

Off-grid electrification is an approach to access electricity used in countries and areas with little access to electricity, due to scattered or distant population. The term off-the-grid (OTG) can refer to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Electrical power can be generated on-site with renewable energy sources such as solar (particularly with photovoltaics), wind, micro hydro, geothermal; with a generator or Micro combined heat and power with adequate fuel reserves. Such a system is called a stand-alone power system or sometimes[8] referred to as a Hybrid power system.

Self-supply of water and sanitation is possible to be independent of municipal water supply and sanitation services.

On-site water sources can include a well, stream, tank, or lake. These sources may require pumps or filtration. Rainwater can also be harvested. Filters can be advanced running off an energy source of boiling and storage.

Off-the-grid houses are not connected to a sewer system, but may instead rely on various types of dry toilets, such as composting toilets or urine-diverting dry toilets.
