50,000 kWh’s and counting, in energy saved so far.
Outdoor Alternative take sustainable tourism seriously and their banks of solar panels have generated over 45,000 kWh of electricity in the last 6 years, saving more than 30 tonnes of carbon from being released into the atmosphere. They also heat the hot water used in the bunkhouses using solar heating panels which contributes a further 5500 kWh to water heating. There is also a composting toilet for campers to save on water usage and plans are underway for an additional solar system to heat water for campers showers in 2017. No wonder they are a Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold Award holder.Find out more about Outdoor Alternative
