Dawn, living off grid can be very rewarding, but it's very difficult. I am not telling you these things to discourage you, but to help you make an informed decision. Maybe you know this stuff, but for anyone else reading this forum, this might help.
The majority of enthusiasm about living off the grid comes from companies that want to sell you equipment to do it. And if that seems harsh, history shows that the only people who made money on the California Gold Rush were the retailers who sold the mining stuff to the miners. It's true! So be very skeptical about equipment for sale, especially solar equipment, and what it's capable of doing.
It's a life of needing to know electricity (AC and DC), sewage handling, water development/storage, more small engine maintenance than you ever imagined, (pumps, mowers, chainsaws, weed wackers, generators, maybe a tractor or ATV, and keeping maintenance charts of every hour they have been turned on). It's a life of sheds and making sure you have literally a hardware store in one of them, because when something goes wrong it will be raining, or snowing, or freezing, or windy, or so hot there's no way to be out in the direct sun.
There's roof maintenance, climbing up on and fixing leaks in wind (which I particularly hate), or rain, or it's so hot you can't sit on the roof shingles. It requires storing gasoline, propane, extra car batteries, roofing tar and extra shingles. It requires being able to get your car out of the mud when it's stuck, deal with ticks, hornets in the ground and in paper nests under eaves, and snakes. Pack rats chew through wood, and car wires and hoses, and build nests under the hood. One just found its way into the intake area for the engine air filter, and all the fur it pulled out of itself to make a nest got sucked into the air filter of the engine and plugged it up. Luckily I caught it in time and the engine didn't have problems.
It's a life of living with rodents, stinging insects, downed fences, mud, falling trees, mountain lions, poison oak, all the things that exist out in a rural location that have always been there.
So if you buy property, it helps to watch it weekly/monthly for a year to watch what happens there every month, how the ground water flows, how the wind blows before and during storms (this helps for siting a house), how long the sun stays on an area in all times of the year, before you make any location decisions for a house/driveway/garage/shed/solar panel and shed. Since there is so much to deal with and learn (almost always the hard way) be prepared to be overwhelmed and scared and defeated on occasion. Mother Nature is not an easy coworker.
If you can buy property with a starter house, so you have a solid place to go out of the rain, where you can cook and bathe safely and easily, and do laundry without driving into town, be warm in the winter, it will make all of the other things much more optimistic to deal with. I didn't say easier, but keeping one's spirits up is 60% of the deal. And if you are really eager to build something, add on to that building, and that way the core house is still solid and reliable. You can always detach an existing dwelling from power and stay safe. It's a lot more exhausting work to create a safe dwelling and try to add onto it.
If you want to do solar, you've got to absolutely....absolutely know electricity, be prepared to spend many thousands of dollars for a system big enough to run a house, and be prepared to maintain it monthly. Be aware of how many hours of sunlight between 10:00 and 2:00 you've got in Oregon where it rains, which are the only hours/days that will charge up batteries. If there's overcast for more than a couple days, it's important to have another source of power, usually a generator. And that requires large amounts of stored gasoline, a shed to put gas in that is separate from the shed with the generator in it, big enough so you can stand in the shed, fill the generator with gas out of the rain or snow, where it has lots of venting so the fumes don't cause problems. Maintenance on these basic machines is crucial.
Your friends will be curious about your life, and come to visit once, but I've found it's rare if anyone comes a second time. They all say it's too far, too hard to drive in the dark on winding mountain roads, it's too difficult even to visit. I've had to do all the driving to keep old friendships, but I find I had less and less in common with them, and they really didn't want to hear about life off the grid. So your neighbors will be your new social network. And it's a small town life, and you will be the newcomer, so joining in becomes very important.
