Sustainable Power for Electrical Resources (SuPER)

Project Description

The proposed activity is the development of a low-cost, sustainable source of electrical power with a 20 year life cycle that can be financially owned by a family unit. This technology, called SuPER for sustainable power for electrical resources, will be provided for people in underdeveloped countries to provide them access to electrical power through free market mechanisms as opposed to governmental aid programs. The technology is based upon existing technology, but extrapolates capabilities into the future using a Moore's Law model. The technology is based upon solar photovoltaic source, battery storage, and a standard DC output to be specified.
