Solar Power for International Development

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

We changed gears somewhat this week and attended the Sixth Annual Aid and International Development Forum (AIDF) being held here in Washington D.C. Some of the manufacturers whose products we represent at SolarTown such as Voltaic Systems with its solar bags and Sun Danzer with its solar refrigerators were there to show how their products have an important role to play in helping countries develop and saving lives. You don’t believe that solar fridges can keep critical medicines safe. Well, think again, as this solar vaccine refrigerator has been pre-qualified by the World Health Organization and has undergone rigorous testing. There are many other applications of solar energy to the developing world such as solar lights and solar battery chargers, which can provide a lifeline to those living off the grid throughout the world.

Spring is in the Air and Solar is in the Backyard

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Spring is in the air in Washington, DC after a long winter of snow and blizzards. People have finally retrieved their snowbound cars and are back jogging in the park and tending their gardens. This is the perfect time to think about taking solar outdoors. As the weather is getting better, we are getting a lot of inquiries about how to size your solar RV kit or your marine solar kit. Like sizing other solar energy systems, it all depends on what your energy needs are—not on how big your RV or boat is, but how much energy you need on your RV or boat. You need to know what your energy usage is before you purchase a solar RV kit or marine solar kit. Whatever solar energy system you use on your boat or RV, one thing is for sure, you are going to enjoy it much more than if you had to listen to a noisy generator as you are trying to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors.
