3863Actwid Kongadzem and DIY Solar: Let the Blogging Begin!
- Feb 7, 2009Dear Wendi, AK friends, Graham, Andrius, and All,
It's great to see you corresponding, and this is a good time to pick up on
the correspondence/blogging abt solar power, for which Andrius has sent some
I read this note to indicate that you have not gotten what Graham has sent,
Wendi...is that right? Graham, what did you send, and when?
In the meantime, I think it would be great if you could write more (Wendi
and AK) about your research in Cameroon. Questions such as: "what equipment
are they using?", "how available is the equipment, and how expensive is
it?", "would it be possible for you to do the same, at least in a test
area?", "what could you do to advance the use of solar without a lot of
equipment?", "how can you ready yourselves for the day when you may get such
equipment?", "who can you/we reach out to help?", and so on.
Can you write some letters on this subject, even if you can't send them
right away, due to electricity shortages? It would be very helpful for you
to document this whole project (or what we hope will be a project), from
pre-start to starting up, implementing, evaluating, and more.
Right now, you are in the "research" phase, so please write up what you are
discovering as you go along. Then hopefully we can get you some items from
DIY, and you can start to write abt that.
With greatest thanks and blessings always, Janet

wE HAVE BEN READING ALL THE POSTINGS SENT OUT BY OTHERS ON THE diy solar
POWER AND IT IS INTERESTING. WE FOLLOWED UP HERE TO RESEARCH ON IT AND WE
FOUND OUT THAT SOME FEW MEMBERS IN OUR COMMUNITY THOUGH AT DISTANT AREAS
HAVE CONNECTED OR LIGHTED THEIR HOMES WITH SOLAR POWER. WE HAVE TRIED TO
FIND OUT FROM THEM HOW THIS CAME ABOUT AND ONE TOLD US THAT HE GOT HIS
EQUIPMENT FROM HIS FRIENDS THE MISSIONARIES ABROAD AND HE IS DOING WELL IT
FOR THE PASR TWO DAYS WE HAVE NOT BEEN HAVING ELECTRICITY HERE IN OUR TOWN
AND WE ARE REALLY LONGING TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DIY SOLAR AND HOW IT CAN BE
CONNECTED TOO. WE ALSO WISH TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WHAT YOU SENT TO US ON DIY
SOLAR HAS NOT YET BEEN RECEIVED AND WE ARE STILL WAITING.
