Have you heard of the Hive?  They might be able to give you advice about offgridding in Portugal.  I’ve never been but I’m hoping to visit later this year.

“Four years ago the Hive launched the open-ended repopulation and revival of a rural Portuguese village, Rossaio…   The current commitments of The Hive are towards defining identity and taking responsibility for the cultural development of the area. A self-build, community-led conservation village rooted in the future living in the present hosting events and doing outreach all year round is an exiting, welcome and necessary project in rural Portugal.”
