The team behind The cycle for Life 2008 expedition based in England approached gotwind for some solutions for their power requirements.
Gotwind founder Ben Jandrell hands over the solar components to team member Jess Hatcher.
the Cycle of Life?
The Cycle of Life is an intrepid expedition that has been organised to raise money and awareness for environmentally responsible community development projects in rural Africa. A team of bicyclists will trek 5000 miles across Africa – a journey that will last almost 4 months as they cover ground from Namibia to Kenya. By the end of the trip, with your help, they will have raised £500,000 for distribution to communities in and around conservation areas.
The team required electrical power to charge an array of electronic devices to include:
High definition video camera
Still digital cameras
The obvious solution given the location had to be one of solar. We supplied the team with all the necessary solar components to achieve the power requirements for their 4 month expedition.
