A solar panel for our home!
We are Jor and Gonza, getting ready to embark on a journey through the Americas, conecting countries , people and cultures.
We are taking off from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil going South with one only objective, Ushuaia (South of Patagonia). On the way to the "end of the world" we expect an infinite amount of stops along the way since we have no rush and all the will to meet and interact with as many people as possible. The southern most city of the planet will be our springboard to take off again, but on the opposite direction. Our second objective: Fairbanks, Alaska (going at least 20.000 kms on the way).
Thanks to our savings, after time, we have been able to prepare for this trip not only ourselves, but also our VW Beetle 1981 and are currently finishing the building of our caravan, to which we want to add a solar panel (230w) and an electrical system that will only rely on solar energy (including the fridge, kitchen appliances, lights and even heating of water).
Doing this, we will be able to give back to nature after so many amazing landscapes along the way and trying also to travel with the least impact on environment and on resources, with a hope to spread the word among those that can see us on the way, living relying only on solar power.
Our dream of a world with a broader use of renewable is possible and if we all add, we can do it together! We desire, that our experience will add more supporters to our cause.
Two passions that unite us both, is jams and photografy, and we have discovered that through this fusion we can shorten the geografical distances that separate us so much.
We look forward to stop at any village, town, city as we can and by sharing our organic jams made of native fruts aquired along our way, along with a photo display of the places we have been we can bring people closer to each other.
We have been preparing home made jam for over a year now and we truly enjoy it and so want to share it...
To complete our dream to empower our caravan with Solar Energy we need the following items:
1 Solar Panel HB-Tech 230w
2 Batteries DF2000
1 Inverter I1000 for our power to go from 12v to 220v
1 Charge controller RS-HBS230 to control battery charge.
It is for this reason that we need your HELP! To make this dream a reality.
