Our lodges are equipped with inverters, which are devices that convert direct current (DC) electricity from the lodge’s batteries into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used to power appliances and devices. This is particularly useful in areas where the power supply may be unreliable or where there may be no access to grid electricity. Inverters allow our lodges to be self-sufficient and provide guests with a reliable and uninterrupted power supply. In addition, inverters are more efficient than traditional generators, which means they produce less noise and pollution, creating a quieter and more eco-friendly environment for our guests to enjoy.
It’s important to note that our inverters are typically only suitable for powering smaller appliances and devices.
