The area around Mt Best is known not only for high rainfall but also for notorious strong winds.

Inside the aerodynamic RAL building it is quiet, even when the wind speed approaches 200 km/h.


1 kW wind turbine, installed at a nearby hill (top left on the picture below), aided by a few solar panels, seems to provide enough energy to make us energy self-sufficient.
