Off Grid Solar Generator for Emergencies

Celsias

In 2008, Hurricane Ike took the Houston area by storm, leaving 2.15 million people without power. The experience led Seamus "Shay" Curran, a professor of physics at the University of Houston and director of UH's Institute for NanoEnergy, to create "Storm Cell" -- an off-grid, portable solar generator that produces two-to-five kilowatts of energy, enough to power a home during an outage, without the emissions of its diesel counterpart.
