Warren Leon, Executive Director of NESEA

The Great New England Energy Show truck provides electricity for the sound system and other purposes. Solar panels on the roof charge batteries in the truck and inverters produce 120 Volt AC current for various loads.

Ambrose Spencer and Nancy Hazard

Ambrose Spencer set up his "solar toys". The plastic pool had a water fountain, and the round silver thing is a fan. He also set up a tug-of-war between students and a solar-powered electric winch. That was very popular.
