solar bulbs @ a charity hospital

it feels good wen d institution ur volunteering ur talent is following ur advice….tis s wat i felt wen d maintenance guy (mr ogie) of st martin de porres charity hospital installed solar bulbs (using a softdrink pet bottle – a.k.a isang litrong liwanag). in the powerhouse of the hospital’s sewerage treatment plant & at the maintenance staff house. they used to leave d lights open on tis areas even in mid day since d areas are dimly lit….now dey don’t need 2waste electricity wenever d sun s shining!

lights @d maintenance staff quarters r no longer lit during d day!

d solar bulb recessed into d cieling of d staff's quarters (d plywood sidings should be tapered/slanted like a trapezoid to allow more sunlight to enter d room)

d pple who have seen d solar bulbs r happy bout it. accordingly, dey didn’t had any problem bout leakage even after some heavy rains…some volunteer staff of d hospital r planning 2install d solar bulbs in their houses..mr ogie is now teaching d interested ones how 2make solar bulbs by demselves. .can’t wait 2see tis thing multiply!

kudos 2mr haresh daswani & ilac diaz on tis technology!

    Hey There Resourceefficiency,
    Interesting Post, Solar lights are the best way of illuminating your home or outdoors. In fact, they are ideal for camping, vacations, holidays, and excursions. You can pack them up for your adventure trips, too, since they do not work on batteries. They use natural sunlight for charging and are extremely portable. These lights are free from carbon emissions and do not create any other type of waste, such as gasses, smoke, chemicals, combustion. They are the safest form of lighting and help in conserving natural resources. Solar energy is a renewable energy, which is available in abundance. These natural resources do not deplete. Moreover, these don’t even emit any carbon emissions; rather, by using these natural resources, you are contributing your bit to the environment. There are several advantages of using this form of energy, and it is the best form of illumination. Here are some more facts about solar lights and energy.
    All the Best

    G’Day! Resourceefficiency,
    Thanks you for your post, Donating an old car to charity is a good way to recycle it. It has many advantages to the community. The taxpayer gets a valuable tax deduction on their itemized federal return. The scrap value of the car provides the charity with some much needed money to help fund their programs. The community gets a gas guzzling, polluting car off the road.
    Thanks

      good idea. though lotz of 30yr old vehicles r still roaming around d roads here in the philippines, specially n d rural areas. maybe making old vehicles become more fuel efficient & produce less pollutants (e.g. fitting w/ catalytic converters w/c old cars don’t have) can b more appropriate here…..
