In Captain Cook, most properties have electricity and telephone, some have cable (and high-speed internet access.) Water is typically either from the County or from catchment.

Many homes in this area are off grid depending on there distance from main road, they are powered by solar, or generator/ battery combination,or hawaii electric, sewage is usually a cesspool, a builder friend of mine said he has never in 40 year seen anyone have to clean out cesspool, water for showers and home needs is done by catchment from roof which needs about a cup of bleach per month to keep bacteria from growing, hot water can be produced by an on demand propane water heater, and drinking water is available for free from city/ county wells at different locations on the main road, there are county garbage collection sites on main road free of charge, my cost off grid for propane fridge, on demand water heater gas for generator is around 100$ i am not sure about hawaii electric but have heard it can be expensive.

generators are expensive to run and dangerous, my friend caught on fire putting the gas in a bad one. drop and roll. GO TO THE EXPERTS. BE SAFE.
