DFW Solar Tour
October 5, 2019
Owenwood Farms Education Center joins the DFW Solar Tour this year (Saturday, 05-Oct.), providing instruction with a hands-on “Solar Lunch Box” Project, in addition to conducting a site visit highlighting their proposed off-grid facility, discussing the plan and components of the future PV solar system, and a water catchment system and sustainable food production. The goal of Owenwood Farms Education Center is providing organic, locally sourced fruits and vegetables to grow the communities of zip codes 75218 & 75228 out of being a food desert.
What is a Solar Lunch Box? – A Solar Lunch Box (SLB) is a small-scale working model of an Off-Grid Solar Charging System designed by a NTREG junior member when she was 12 years of age. Each SLB can charge a mobile phone and/or power a small light. Several have been delivered to refugee camps and storm damaged areas where power is not available.
