Embracing Solar Energy

Conserving Energy

  • Smart radiators thermostats help us to save up to 30% of gas per year.
  • Windows are double glazed to conserve heat during winter.
  • Smart switches controlled by presence detectors.
  • 90% of energy efficient LED bulbs.

Composting

We do our own compost. All compostable waste becomes the best compost soil as fertilizer for lawns and beds. We use no artificial fertilizers if possible.

Promoting E-mobility

We have a charging station for electric cars, it's not only available to the residents and guest of the house but also to the neighbors if possible.
