Power for the facility is completely generated on-site with a 2 micro hydro turbines that generate 800 kWh per year and a roof top solar system that generates 10,800 kWh annually. A solar hot water system heats hot water for the residents and visitors of the institute. The hybrid energy system provides enough power for Casa Iseami as well as the caretaker’s and maintenance housing and the existing lodge for the institute’s participants.
