The use of Solar panels and windmill has been done for generating electricity for this Eco-home.
The rainwater is stored in underground tanks. Instead of R.O. water purification, natural purifiers are made from coconut fibres, coal and silver coins in brass pots.
This purifier retains all the required minerals and no water is wasted which is often seen wasted in R.O Purifiers.
The natural drinking water filter system consists of copper pots with small holes at the bottom. The first pot on the top is used to fill up water, second pot contains marble chips, 3rd pot has s coconut shell charcoal, 4th pot contains fine sand and the 5th pot has a silver coin.
