Solar Power Love in Nicaragua

December 26th, 2011 by  


This is a cool video on solar energy in Nicaragua. There, it’s not just about power, but also helps to provide people with drinkable water! Something to appreciate. It’s also nice to hear that the company featured in the video helps citizens to understand the system and maintain it.

Feelgood video for the week.

    Zach– Nice work. The one thing left unclear is why having solar power suddenly produces clean (non-contaminated) water. Does it involve deep drilled wells (as opposed to hand-dug open wells) from which clean is then pumped out using photovoltaic juice? David Gullette

      It seems that’s the case, since the power is used to power a pump.
