Debut of the Pedal Generator in Nepal

Designing for Quality
Designing for Quality

This spring six generators will be out in local villages. A training session is scheduled to occur in each village at that time. The machines have been carefully designed to provide safe, efficient energy for simple home use, a far cry from kerosine lamps which cause indoor pollution and injurious fires. In this picture Ecosystems is working with a machine shop to perfect the design of the generator.
