Hundred Acre Hideaway is "Off The Grid" meaning we are not connected to mains power lines as they are too far away. We make our own power from the sun and wind. Our system is super sophisticated and allows us to demonstrate sustainable living at its finest. This is how we do it:
We use solar and wind energy for 240V power supply, gas for instant hot water, fridges and cooking plus a backup 8.5KVA silent generator for times of extremely low sunshine. Without blinding you with science, very simply, the sun shines onto 3000KW of north facing solar panels, which then feeds into a bank of 12 batteries. Then a 6000W inverter transforms the solar energy into 240V ready for everyone to use. Its not rocket science...its just solar power!
