Our preference is to have as much heating and lighting as possible provided through natural resources, so there are open wood fires, solar power, candles, torches and the like. Also a solar powered fridge plus gas rings, an Agar and wood-burning pizza oven assist with the preparation of meals; whilst generators pump water and provide power and lights when required.
