Energy management Severin Safari Camp runs on solar and diesel powered generators. There are four (4) generators, two with an output capacity of 40 KvA and two more with 80 KvA. The power is used for lighting, water heating and running refrigerators. Generator power is metered for monitoring purposes. The fuel consumption is also closely monitored for efficiency. Energy consumption is analyzed on guest occupancy.
Severin Safari Camp has invested in solar water heaters which are connected to a heat exchanger system fixed on the generator exhaust. The heat exchanger uses hot fumes produced by the generator and electrical motors for water heating. The entire system has a capacity of 4000 litres. It is well insulated to enhance efficiency and the hot water is metered for monitoring purposes.
Guests are briefed on energy conservation on arrival and through information folders in the guest tents while staff is sensitized through staff meetings and departmental briefings. In addition, main switches are fixed in the guest tents for easier clients’ accessibility to switch off unnecessary lights.
Energy saving bulbs and light emitting diodes are installed throughout the facility for power conservation.
Security flash lights and torches are solar rechargeable
