Solar- and Wind-Powered System for Disaster Sites
Solar Cube, a portable, self-contained system, caters to disaster sites where power has been interrupted, and clean drinking water and electricity are not readily available. It also provides water and electricity to remote or rural areas. Runs on a bank of 24-v. batteries, which are charged on-site by photovoltaic solar panels and a wind generator. Purifies water from any source, including sea-water, river water, creek water, well water, or polluted fresh water. Can provide up to 3,500 gals. of clean drinking water per day from polluted water or salt water—enough to sustain hundreds of families during a disaster. It generates enough electricity for emergency response crews to power refrigerators for medical supplies, run a laptop computer online, or ensure that crisis communications equipment remains operational.
