Soon, a tent with solar energy for the homeless


New York: A group of Hispanic students living in California is designing a camping tent that can use solar energy to meet the electricity needs of the homeless. “Our camping house is made with special materials, where we’re going to have solar panels, LED lights, so that the person can see inside when it’s dark,” Kenia Shi, a high school student, was quoted by Efe news agency.

These students are also going to have a way to clean the house with ultraviolet lights, which kill bacteria. The installation of miniaturised solar technology in a mobile tent is the project being pursued by 12 Latino students at the San Fernando Magnet school in Los Angeles County.
