Regenerative Living Elements

Renewable Energy

Renewable EnergyThe most popular current trend in renewable energy is Solar Grid Tie. This system uses solar panels to generate energy from the sun and feeds that energy directly to the grid tied meter at each home. Anytime the sun is out the meter is running backwards reducing your electric bill. With Energy efficient home design and the amount of available sunlight in Costa Rica there will be no problem reducing the monthly electricity bill. Beyond the huge financial benefits, we will be helping the Planet in countless ways and helping Costa Rica to meet its goal to be the first Carbon Neutral Country in the world!

Green Architecture

We design using the best practices of tropical home building with weather resistant materials and passive cooling. Features such as eco pool placement, high ceilings with cupola, and outdoor covered areas create a design that is both functional and beautiful.  This includes the use of locally available thermal mass building materials that have good longevity in a tropical climate, energy efficient appliances, led lighting, and so on.

Permaculture Design

Permaculture DesignPermaculture, a word originally coined for “permanent agriculture”, and is evolving to mean “permanent culture”, will be the design philosophy for this development. We design for abundance, and each homestead will receive its own specific permaculture design as part of the collective Regenerative Neighborhood. Each homestead will include a fruit forest, perennial gardens, greenhouse, chicken coop, edible landscaping, worm bins, and a fish pond. Landscaping throughout the neighborhood will not only offer beauty and food, but will have many benefits such as attracting pollinating insects, butterflies, etc.
