As #2 is not connected to the grid, and is approx 600 m away from the nearest supply, solar power was looked into, but it is very expensive for an adequate package, so it was considered wiser and a better long term choice to buy more land rather than investing in high-tech.
Bulgaria, including this area, is
generally a light wind zone, so wind power was not considered at
However, as #35
connected to the grid, it is planned, at least to begin with, to
provide limited electricity for #2
charging 12 volt batteries at #35
the mains supply there, and then transfer them as required, probably
have a total of 12 batteries of say 100Ah each, with 8 of them at #2,
4 of those in actual use and 4 on standby, with the remaining 4
charging at #35.
electricity is to be used sparingly: for charging laptops and mobile
telephones (yes, for the time being we do need them), and a few low wattage lamps. Back to
has a mobile stand-alone petrol generator for occasional use of high
wattage appliances and for emergencies.
This could of course also
be used at #35
