Since December 2015 has Hillwatering Country House a Solar Panel system installed
Almost every day we use this system so we do not use any electricity from the grid.
In the evenings when we have a power loss due to a thunderstorm or something else we use the batteries from the solar panels.
You will not notice there is no electricity, because the back-up kicks in immediately.
We recycle as much as possible.
1. Plastic bottles (water, soda etc)
2. Tins cans (beer, soda etc)
3. Glas bottles
We collect those items and once in a while we bring them to a recycle
In 2017 we have bought a 2200 liter water tank and connected one of the rain gutters on the back to it so we can use rainwater to water the garden in the dry season.
