Solar Power in Uganda

solar therm al prototype in UgandaSolar power benefits people across the world. At the solar power lab we focus on the device physics of photovoltaic devices and ways to increase the performance while lowering the cost. We also get out into the community to see how solar power can be used to directly benefi people lives. Most of our outreach takes place closer to home but in the first two weeks of 2014 one of our graduate students, Tim Reblitz, travelled to Uganda to look at how solar is used there. Most of the education was for Tim but we hope that there were also benefits to the local Ugandian community. You can read more about Tim's exploits at his blog
