"True Life: I'm Living Off The Grid" (7:00pm) � Imagine being so self-sufficient that you don't need public utilities for water or electricity and that your way of life causes little harm to the environment. It's called existing "off the grid"�and as energy costs rise and fossil fuels continue to damage our planet�more and more Americans are giving it a try.
