Ans: Go Solar Day.
The FireFly is our live demo of solar power.
It was built on a trailer to haul it to events and is off-grid.
It has 3 solar panels and battery along with a Battery Charge Controller & Inverter.
ASA used FireFly to generate AC electricity to run the snow cone machine.
We used 2 mini solar panels to generate DC electricity to run a toy bubble maker.
Doug, Morton, Kay and Celia manned our table.
Kaleb Archibald, son of Steve &
grandson of Morton, made snow cones.
The snow cones were a big hit –
the temperature was in the mid-90’s.
