The Details

I’m in! When can I start?

This year Off Grid Weekend will take place August 14 - 16.

What do you mean by Go Off Grid?

Going off grid can mean a lot of different things but to us, it means using alternative sources of energy rather than connecting to an electrical grid (ie. avoid use of the lights or outlets in your home). How you choose to spend Off Grid Weekend is up to you! Feel free to go on a camping trip or spend a few days under your own roof, we just ask you to experience 48 hours sourcing your own energy.

Wait, do I have to turn off my phone?

Nope, but you’ll realize charging without access to an outlet becomes more difficult. Hint, hint: BioLite products provide a great alternative for charging off grid.

Why is BioLite doing this?

Through Off Grid Weekend, we aim to heighten awareness about the opportunities provided to us when accessing energy is easy and what happens when it isn’t so easy. It is also a fun way to celebrate energy independence!
