Sources for renewable energy are abundant in Micronesia—literally right in your backyard. This video will show you how to take advantage of the sun, the wind, the water, and the coconut to make light, heat and electricity. It includes six pollution-free ideas that will help lower your cash power bills without raising the sea level.
The projects in this half hour instructional video range from the simple and free to the powerful and complicated. Learn how little it takes to make a lamp from discarded aluminum cans, or a stove from an old box and some foil. Find out if you have what it takes to construct a wind generator. You can watch how a solar panel system is built, then build your own.
Each project introduced in this video has a companion video with detailed step-by-step instructions, including costs and locations for imported components.
