Photo Voltaic (PV) Solar Panel
The solar PV panel on our roof generates enough power to run 4 fans 24 hours a day, every day. These fans sit in the stench pipes of our dry toilets and urinals, sucking air up and over the humus to keep it dry and ensure healthy, non-smelling decomposition.
Solar Thermal Panels
The tubes in the solar thermal panels are filled with liquid. The sun’s energy heats this liquid which rises by the process of thermo-convection (no costly pumps, no electricity wasted) to a hot water tank in the roof where heat from the liquid is transferred to the hot water supply.
