Solar Power in Jasmine Valley

Jasmine Valley Eco Resort is solar powered. It's completely off the grid. This means we have the sun, which comes up daily, providing enough power to run the resort - restaurants, kitchens, pool lights, room lights and mininal grounds lights. The power collected during the day is stored in big batteries, which then provide power through the night.

Each room is equipped with a single photovoltaic cell, a charge controller and a 100Ah deep cycle battery. This way, all our guests are able to manage their power usage independently. It's pretty easy to manage; the Q's and A's below should have you well prepared.

Q. How does this affect our guests?

A. I'm glad you asked! It means we all need to be a little 'energy conscious'. We almost never go 'lights-out' in our public spaces, but from time to time, guests do have a night by the romantic glow of candles :)

Q. I'm scared of the dark, is there a way I can make sure I have lights all night?

A. Sure, pretty much. In a typical day, there's enough sunlight to charge your room battery with enough electricity to power a light or two all night. If you're careful to turn lights off after you leave the bathroom, and leave only a porch light on when you are out of your room at night, you'll be pretty safe.

Q. Can I charge my phone or laptop?

A. Yes, there ample power at reception or in the pizza restaurant. Just ask one of our friendly staff.

Q. What else can I do to make sure I don't have to use a candle?

A. Probably the most common 'misuse' of power, is forgetting to turn lights or fans off. Only use the fan if you're hot, and make sure you're only using lights when you really need to. Simple :)
