A Florida woman who successfully converted the utilities in her house from city water and electricity from the local power company to rainwater and solar panels is being punished for her innovative efforts to live “off the grid,” which a local magistrate recently declared to be illegal and in violation of local code ordinances.

Though he admitted that the regulations are redundant and unreasonable, Special Magistrate Harold S. Eskin ruled that Robin Speronis, a 54-year-old former real estate agent currently living in Cape Coral, is violating city code, not to mention the International Property Maintenance Code, by generating and supplying her own water and electricity from natural elements rather than public utilities.

“Reasonableness and code requirements don’t always go hand-in-hand,” stated Eskin, insinuating his own disagreement with the outrageous rules. Nevertheless, he insists that he is required to enforce them, “whether I want to or not.”
