Is Living Off-Grid Legal in Arizona?

Off-grid living is technically legal in Arizona. State laws even encourage some off-grid systems. However, off grid living is highly regulated. You will need a permit for almost everything you want to install or build on your property. Further, some local laws might make living completely off-grid legally impossible.

Arizona  Zoning Laws and Off-Grid Living

In all states, local zoning laws ultimately determine whether it is legal to live off-grid.

Arizona's zoning laws tend to be very relaxed outside of urban areas and shouldn't have many legal issues with going off grid.

In urban areas, though, you may not be able to go entirely off grid because of Fire Ordinances, which require running water at a certain pressure. Some cities may also require you to connect to the municipal sewage system if it is located near your property.
