Die fotovoltpanele is op die - www.aardskip.com - we have placed the PV pannels on the roof.
Agter die venters sien julle on kop hoë piesangboom, botterskorsie ranke en 'n hele spul tamaties.
Die grys watersel se vetfilter is skoon gemaak.
Temperature die week was so laag as -3 grade buite en tog terselfde tyd 12 grade binne.
Verder het ons 'n draagbare rugsteun gas geyser geïnstaleer vir die dae wat dit so bewolk is.
Laastens is daar ook nou 'n Ultra Violet waterfilter geplaas om die koue drinkwater te steriliseer.
In the picture you can see the PV panels on the roof and also the team that helped. F.l.t.r. Tommy, Jaco, Arno and CJ. The action was made possible by Tommy that owns the aluminum factory in Orania. The aluminum crossbars that were used for the panels was designed and made by Tommy. A large part of Tommy's factory also works on solar energy.
Inside the earthship you see banana tree, butternut creepers and a whole bunch of tomatoes.
Temperatures this week were as low as -3 degrees outside and yet at the same time 12 degrees inside.
Furthermore we installled a portable backup gas geyser installed for the cloudy days.
Finally, there is also an Ultra Violet water filter placed to sterilize cold drinking water.
