Already from the initial phases of construction of the Monastery, the Monks took great pains to protect and preserve the pristine local environment by planting and tending to forest and fruit-bearing trees both in the surrounding area and on the Monastery premises. They also implemented methods and technologies to achieve a negligible environmental footprint and full energy self-sufficiency for all the Monastery facilities. These clean-energy methods, gradually introduced over the decades (1980-2022), include the use of biomass, particularly olive kernels, to heat the buildings, biological purification methods for the fish farm, hybrid systems with LNG, a small wind turbine park and an initially small solar panel installation for the kitchens and back-up lighting, and recycling practices. Today, the Monastery, Missionary-Conference Center, Dormitories, Summer Camps, Holy Churches, Radio Station etc. are all powered by two modern net metering and virtual net metering solar panel systems, designed and funded exclusively by private donations and friends of the monastery. These systems cover all of its energy requirements and provide clean energy to the national electricity transmission network. The Monastery aims to obtain electric cars in the future, thus eliminating their need for environmentally unfriendly fossil fuel-consuming vehicles.
