The best way to understand CLTC is that it is a small village, filling a valley. With around 400 residents, including students, faculty, workers and families, it contains much more than just classrooms. There is a farm, a clinic, a pre-school and vehicle and timber workshops. This is in addition to all the housing, classrooms, and other buildings. They have to provide for most of their services including water, power and sewerage, and these costs are consistently high. While the college recently installed solar panels, these are only helpful during the day, so fuel costs are still high. A high-end battery ($400,000) will make the college self-sufficient in power. We have provided $40,000, and others contributed even more, but we wish to assist further.
