Solar Jar

A little while back the kind folks at Consol gave us one of these Solar Jars to try out. We don’t really write too much about products on the blog but this one is a winner. I think it has real application for South Africa where we have a load of sun and not enough electricity. It is fairly sturdily built except for the breakable glass of course :-) and apparently it offers up to six hours of light. Not too bad at R150. Check out more detail here.

    indeed! lest we forget! on the plus side, it looks as though there is a drive to create green jobs:
