Solar IS Civil Defense PSA

Solar IS Civil Defense – what we are all supposed to have on hand in case of emergency – flashlight, cell phone, radio, extra set of batteries – can be powered by a few square inches of solar electric panel. Add a hand crank or bicycle generator and you have a reliable source of survival level electricity, day or night, by sunlight or muscle power.

This is also entry level electrical power for the 1.5 billion people around the world who do not yet have access to electricity. Civil defense at home and economic development abroad can be combined in a “buy one, give one” program like the Bogolight ( which is a solar LED light and AA battery charger.

Solar IS Civil Defense and could be much more.


I wish the mainline environmental groups had been broadcasting practical material like this for the last twenty years or so instead of devoting almost all their advertising to scaring us about climate change.

  1. Go solar for zero down!

    Contact me for details – I have one customer who just signed a zero down solar lease, she’ll make enough profit in the first year to pay her half of the cost of braces for one of her kids! Over the 20 year life of the lease, she stands to profit over $35,000.
