Original crew and solar panels installed to generate electricity seasonally.
There is no utility service at the Ranch. We generate our own electricity through a Sustainable Power Station, which was developed in cooperation with the Humboldt State U. Environmental Engineering Department and the Schatz Energy Research Center. Click here for more information about this exciting project. While we do have electricity, we also strongly discourage certain appliances, which require extensive amounts of energy — such as hair dryers, electric coffee pots, and waffle irons.
