Off the Grid

We’re Off the Grid, using solar electricity and every possible form of catching the sun:

  • solar water distilling
  • solar herb dehydrating
  • solar lanterns, path lights, and motion sensor spot lights
  • solar desk lights
  • solar flashlights

Electricity

Why do we use the sun for our electricity?  It’s the responsible thing to do and the systems are sophisticated enough now to make it possible. Using public electricity means burning coal. Our lifestyles require more organization and conscious behaviors, in all aspects, which removes taking for granted many many things.

Solar Electricity Equipment

North Property

Main Lodge and wooden  bungalows have LED lights powered by 15 KW of solar panels and battery bank with back up LPG generator.

Solar panels at the lodge

South Property

Single Rooms, Dormitories, and Meditation/Yoga Octagon have Sundaya stand-alone panels and LED lights connected to a big truck battery which connects to a small bank of solar panels.

It’s all about catching the sun and recharging

Solar packs for the desk lights and lanterns for the pathways catching their recharging rays.
