We've been taking steps to make our properties more energy efficient by reducing our consumption and using renewable energy. This includes using LEDs and energy saving light bulbs, as well as motion detectors or timer devices on lights in communal areas.
At Kasbah Tamadot and Mahali Mzuri solar panels have been installed to heat the outdoor swimming pools. This project reduced 40% of its oil consumption over one year and as a result more solar panels have been implemented to pre-heat the domestic water at Kasbah Tamadot.
Necker Island and Ulusaba also make use of the sunshine with solar panels to generate electricity and hot water. Three wind turbines were installed on Necker Island in June 2019 and together with a solar farm and battery system, they allow the island to be without generators for around 90% of the day and save approximately 2.5 tons of carbon from going into the atmosphere each day.
