Solar Generators - for emergencies and more Answered

I've started an IndiGoGo campaign - 'Solar for Sandy' - to provide emergency solar generators to those devastated by Super Storm Sandy.

I've started it because our Congress is useless.  It really, really, really bugged the hell out of me the way our Congress both disregarded and greatly delayed relief to the families suffering from Super Storm Sandy.  They made a bad situation much much more worse.

So - unlike Congress - I decided to do something about it.  First, deliver mutual aid to New Jersey families with portable solar generators.  And the next time a climate disaster strikes we won't have to wait on Congress to do the right thing.  We'll route around their inaction and just get it done.

I'm asking the Green Community on Instructables to join me.  Become a funder or spread the word widely so we can make this happen and provide relief.  One of the perks is a complete building manual for our iPower Station solar generator.

Thanks for hearing me out - and providing a helping hand.

We're coming up on 30 days remaining - and still have a way to go in reaching our 'Solar for Sandy' goal.

Just added a new Perk (Nine page solar generator plan - Preview Here) -

Solar power is now much more affordable and  accessible - and we've made it easier than ever.

Take a look.  And remember....

You make a difference.  Together, we make things better.

Thank you!
