Household waste is composted to create great soil for planting trees. Just downhill from the home, a fenced structure houses raised beds and containers to grow vegetables and fruits. Plants grown in this area are automatically watered with the greywater from the kitchen sink.
The solar system consists of twelve 250 watt panels that can power the entire home, including lights, all the standard-sized appliances, and an air conditioner.
Water to the home is provided by a large rainwater collection system.
