As we turn on our bedroom light, television set, air conditioner, radio and whatnot, we are consuming a certain amount of electricity that comes from fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are in the form of oil, coal and natural gas.
Knowing the consumption of electricity would add to the demand for more fossil fuel explorations, Electrical Engineer Nestor Archival designed a house that operates without a commercial electricity provider - the Eco-House.
ABOUT ARCHIVAL ECO-HOUSE
The Eco-house, located in Talamban, is the first sustainable and self-sufficient house in Cebu and in the entire Philippines.
If you're asking how they use their applicances, Engr. Archival made it a point to install turbines, a bio-gas facility, and solar panels that can help sustain their needs for electricity.
Engr. Archival is not only concerned with electricity conservation but with water conservation as well. He installed roof water catchments, a fish pond and a connector at the kitchen leading to a block-making facility.
As for the waste management, the Eco-house boasts of their waste recycling programs. Bottles, plastics, styrofoam and tin cans can be found anywhere you can't imagine they would be in a house.
Call Eco-house through (6332) 233 8760 or (6332) 253 2184 if you're interested to visit.
