Open Solar 2
Open Solar 2 is the Second Solar Power Generator Convergenece at Factor e Farm it was held August 1-31, 2009.
Results of the 1st Convergence are here. We learned that we want to stick with simple mirrors as a reflective surface - not films. We are pursuing simple flat slats with individual motors for OS2, which is feasible because of low cost electronic components and availability of open source logic controllers such as Arduino.
