Renewable energy production

by Becky Parker

The technology for renewable energy is always improving and becoming cheaper. To demonstrate that green energy is the way to go, Sophia is building a wind turbine and installing solar panels to power a telescope. The motor of a washing machine will be repurposed to act as a generator for the wind turbine. She hopes this project will show that sustainable energy is accessible and convenient, which may encourage more people to make the switch.
