SUSTAINABILITY AT THE
WOOLSHED ECO LODGE

Solar Energy

The team at Woolshed have worked closely with Donna from Asset Solar Tech to install a huge 30.1KW Solar Power system which should provide us with around 108% of our energy consumption...  That's right, we are energy self sufficient, a very satisfying feeling on so many levels!

Meaning, our reduction in commercial energy use per year is the equivalent of planting 1059 trees, avoid burning approx 19990kg (22 Ton) of coal or using the equivalent of 17,589 Lit of fuel. What a difference a small business can make...

Harvest Water

We harvest rain water from our main Woolshed building into two 25,000 lit water tanks. We use this water all round the property from watering the gardens, lawns and edible herb and vege garden through to cleaning and maintenance.
