Marataba is an exclusive trails lodge is situated in the Marakele National Park (Limpopo, South Africa). This remote and completely off grid Lodge relies entirely on Solar, battery and a gas generator for back up.
This is an automated system that will bring the Generator online for Supply should there be insufficient power available. There are a variety of settings that allow the Generator to start up, but also not start up for Quiet times, so as not to inconvenience guests out in the bush. The entire System is monitored remotely via Optics RE, and the Generator can be started at the click of a button remotely if required.
