(April 7, 2016) Watly has recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise the final needed funds for the release of its water sanitizing and electricity generating computer powered entirely by solar energy.
The Watly 3.0 “combines photovoltaic and thermal solar technology to sanitize 5,000 liters of water a day,” while also “generating off-grid electricity that powers its internal electronics and can recharge external devices” and provide internet connection with its built-in router, reported PV Magazine.
According to PV Magazine, “The solar heat is used for vapor compression distillation, which can sanitize any water, no matter how dirty, while the PV panels on the roof of the machine generate the power needed for the internal electrics.”
“The water is used to cool the solar PV panels so that it can function at optimum efficiency, and they then warm up the water to help the thermal solar system,” said Marco A. Attisani, Watly Founder and CEO.
Attisani divulged his ultimate goal “is that enough Watly 3.0 machines are built to create their own network, and then from that their own grid.”
