It's the Aussie town that plans to go completely off the grid. The town of Tyalgum is located in the hills near the Queensland-New South Wales border. It has just 300 residents, and if it's successful, it would be Australia's first town to pull the plug.

Andrew Price is the project's director, and runs the company Australian Radio Towers.
