CMS Solar Genset, Tracker and Ebike Project

Recommended Posts

Here is our next project plan at CMS for Indonesia that we have started working on.


Mission: Provide a prototype for a portable solar array for rural or remote areas in Indonesia that have underserviced / overly expensive electrical infrastructure.


1. Develop a prototype of the a portable solar array.

2. Share the design and build process with local NGO's in Indonesia.

3. Gather donations to help prototyping and support a train the trainers program to have local trainers spread the design and build throughout Indonesia.

SOLN1 v3





Our first solar 50W panel. We bought it used for 250,000 Rp. This will be the base of the portable solar power generator.

Bick, are you thinking of maybe funding this project with the microloan project as well? Or maybe applying / allowing donations for it? I'd be happy to contribute towards this ^^
We now also have section for free / atlernative energy, so I'd be happy to see some updates/progress posts.. or just some planning talk in there :)

We have completed the build for the basics for the solar charger but we have 1 dead LiFePo4 battery that we need to get RMA on so I am working on that. We also got a quote on installing a solar array at our school.


Here is the 50W panel battery pack charging power banks from used laptop batteries we repurposed.
