« on: October 17, 2012, 06:02:37 PM »
One of my email accounts gets spammed by loads of Chinese companies trying sell solar equipment or Eco solutions....

But this solution from an Italian company caught my eye:

"iKube is a ready to use mobile solar generator able to guarantee up to 3 kW
power supply.

Designed to provide electricity in all areas of the globe not covered by a
distribution grid and for all uses that require to be able to move their energy
source. iKube can work even in the absence of sunshine offering the advantage of
compactness, low noise, no fumes and fuel costs.
The batteries contained in the base of only 1 m3 are recharged by the photovoltaic
generator which, with its surface of 9 m2, develops a power of 1.5 kW.

Free yourself from the cost of fuel, Bring energy with you, Help the environment
