Looks great. Costs too much. Here, between the southern coast and the road between Bato and Sogod, live thousands w/o electricity. Sat View in google maps, not seen in the map, (most map shown roads are paved) show the roads, very little to none, paved. Wood and Kerosene is what they use. Wood is free. Kerosene by habal habal. If an NGO would to go there and give the lamps away, the lamps would all show up at a public market somewhere, for sale. BTW a typical kerosene lamp is a glass bottle, the favored being a Tanduay (another don't know why) pint, with a rag. Nothing fancy. It's remarkable that there is whole low end economy up there, with sari sari stores and all. I see a habal habal with a driver and maybe 200-300lbs of goods leaving Metro. Same in town at the Shell station, where I see the same but loaded down with kerosene and gasoline, both of which will be sold by Pepsi (not Coke for some reason) one liter bottles. Right here in the middle between Macrohon and Maasin we drive our old owner jeep too far in to feel comfortable, just to see. The road got to be about two meters wide, very uncomfortable, and about a 100' drop on one side. Turning around presented a real challenge but we made it. It's real habal habal territory.

P1570. I suspect they could be made for a fraction of that price.

Yes, way too much. You can find little solar devices way cheaper than that.

Yeah, I think you're right. Wife picked up three ZC-799's in Cebu recently. I may wrong but I think they run about P500 each.

Another thing about the Philippines that I appreciate.

 

16 million families here live off grid and without electricity - 16 million.

 

Kinda puts our 1st world problems into proper perspective.....

Greetings! Looks like my link changes every few hours content maybe?

The second link is the one I posted at the time, but it's  now gone!

 

Wonder if you could plug it into the ocean?
