Energy, solar panels, water and wifi
Arc de Can Puig is located in the mountains so we are completely self-sufficient when it comes to electricity and water. We generate electricity through solar panels and we store it in large batteries. After that it is converted to 220 V. For the times when there is not any or not enough sun we produce energy with a generator.
We obtain water from our own well. This is stored in several reservoirs. The water is filtered and decalcified before it enters the house. This water is fine for showering but for drinking we use bottles. Next to the house is a biological septic tank that serves as a sewer. The post we pick up in the village and the and the garbage that we have to separate, we drop off at a deposit in the nearby town ourselves.
we are completely autonomous.
Fortunately we do have WIFI and this is put at the disposal of our guests.
Furthermore, we face all kinds of herbs in the garden that can be picked for personal use, such as rosemary, thyme, sage, laurel and lavender. There is a small vegetable garden that can be used also.
It is nice to be autonomous, but it also means that one must be aware that energy and water are not always available at full strength and that one must therefore deal with these matters consciously.
