In 2010 our desire to use green power finally became reality. While renovating the stable roof we installed an extensive photovoltaic system.
Now the power requirements of the estate are guaranteed with a production of about 24,000 kWh per year. In addition to the photovoltaic system, we also have solar panels for the production of hot water, the water that you will use for your shower.
In the common areas we heat mostly with wood and in the private rooms we use both wood and gas.
Regarding lighting, energy saving bulbs are used throughout the whole house.
Since 2012, we have had the honor to participate to the project "Fattoria del Panda". To learn more about it, please take a look at the page www.fattoriedelpanda.com. In short, we have committed ourselves to save electricity , water and waste, to separate waste as much as possible, to deal with the washing and cleaning in a sustainable way and to make the changes of bed linen and towels as "green" as possible .
Our love for the environment has led us to choose organic farming; for our pastures, fruit and olive trees we use organic fertilizers from our own stable and for irrigation we use water from our own spring."
