Ghana: Village completes trial of new solar-powered technology

Following a successful trial of a smaller machine in a small village in Ghana, Watley, a clean technology company, has unveiled a new solarpowered technology that aims to provide water, energy and internet connectivity to people living in poorer parts of the world. The trial involved using the Watly 2.0 in Abenta village in Ghana, where residents were able to drink clean water from the machine, recharge their phones and other devices, and benefit from the connectivity. The new Watly 3.0, standing 2.4 metres off the ground and 40 metres-long, is capable of sanitising 5,000 litres of water per day, enough to provide for a community of 3,000 people. The solar-powered thermodynamic computer is also a powerful communication device that can download and upload data to and from the internet.
