This Solar Box Provides Energy And Clean Water For Those In Need

By Brian Spaen

In recent years, there has been a number of solutions available for impoverished countries to receive electricity. Companies are releasing affordable solar-powered boxes that can generate energy for standard appliances. One product that is particularly unique is the Off Grid Box from an Italian startup, who is looking to make it on the large scale and expand their user reach.

Measuring at six feet by six feet, it’s topped off with a solar array that does more than just generate energy for use. It also has the ability to clean and filter water for general use. Providing water and electricity in a simple, automated setup would be ideal for those dealing with scarce resources.

Six specific parts make up the product. Along with the aforementioned array, there’s an integrated inverter that collects the sun’s energy and transfers it into usable electricity and places it in the included battery pack. It can also collect water and stores it in a tank. When it’s taken out, it has to go through a filtration system. Other cool features include remote monitoring with a mobile device, has a swappable battery, and features a 10-year warranty.
