My husband and I spent 2 nights in Lemuria in early April. We were both completely impressed. My husband is a licensed builder, a master home inspector and a renewable energy installer. So he was skeptical of the design before we arrived. He came away very impressed. He was most impressed at how comfortable the room temperature was on the cold nights even though there was no HVAC system.
During our stay, we really tested the systems to see if they would stand up to our normal energy demands. My husband was again skeptical, because there were only four solar panels. (Our house back in Michigan is powered by 68 solar panels.) In Lemuria we had all the hot water we needed and all the electricity we needed for laptops, iPads, and phones. Overall, it was a great experience that I'm grateful for. Thank you sooo much.
Tip: make sure to spend some time star gazing. The night sky was amazing.
