Firefly Solar news

Firefly Solar have been commissioned by British Gas to design and build a unique solar powered promotional unit from a re-used shipping container. The Solar Space is a stand-alone power system which demonstrates the set up and capabilities of grid connected solar installations for the home. The Solar Space, designed to create conversations about low carbon initiatives, will feature as part of a series of brand experience events, aimed at communicating and showcasing the possibilities and uses of solar power in the domestic environment. British Gas representatives will be on hand at the Solar Space to promote and communicate a range of low carbon, energy efficient services offered by British Gas.

Finally, the Kinectrics Playground is a fun and exciting new range of equipment which converts kinetic energy into electricity. As well as incorporating the PedGen pedal power generators the playground also includes three new innovative designs in people powered technology; the TeedleGen seesaw, WhirlyGen roundabout and HamGen, a human size hamster wheel. These products offer an engaging and interactive way of generating electricity which is both educational and entertaining. Using the Firefly YouWatt meter participants and onlookers are able to observe on screen their own movements being transformed into electricity which can be used to charge low voltage equipment such as phones and cameras or to charge battery banks. The Kinectrics Playground makes its debut this weekend at Electric Picnic Festival, Ireland.  Find out more about Firefly’s range of Kinectrics equipment at:
