Da die Finca abgelegen in der Serra Son Fullos liegt, ist ein Stromanschluss durch den Energieversorger auf absehbare Zeit ausgeschlossen. So entstand die Idee bei der Energieversorgung auf Wind, Solar und Notstrom zu setzen.  Auch die Brauchwasser- und Abwasserversorgung musste gelöst werden. Der Telefon- und Internetanschluss sollte über Richtfunk und Fernsehen über Satellit realisiert werden.
