Renewable Hydro Energy

The mountains of Lesotho have immense untapped potential when it comes to generating green energy. By harvesting rainwater and pumping it up to a new storage dam at the top of the resort during times of low demand, we can then generate hydro-electric power (HEP) at peak times.
The price difference between peak and off-peak electricity will make this idea a viable proposition – plus we’ll be able to supply excess electricity to the LEC grid thanks to an offtake agreement. This will help uplift the national economy by contributing to resource security.
