As most Americans grind away in an office, many of us daydream about what it would be like to drop off the grid and live a simpler life. Unplugged Nation viewers will follow a family who is looking to leave their city life behind and take the leap into off-grid living. In each episode, a new family will view three properties in the area they would like to live in and they will get to select one dream home try out the “unplugged” way of life for three days. Guided by off-the-grid expert, Jay Gruen, the families will learn what it takes to live this new lifestyle– from growing their own food, to running their own electricity to fending for themselves– then they will decide whether they can hack it off-grid or need to move back to the city.
