Savannah Tech Generator to Power Earth Day Festivities
#1270 | April 17, 2012
College to collect batteries for recycling on Friday, April 20
SAVANNAH – Earth Day Savannah will use clean energy to power many of its vendor booths this year thanks to Savannah Technical College’s photovoltaic generator. The generator has enough stored power to power up to 10 laptops or five televisions simultaneously. It will run from 11AM until 3PM on Saturday, April 21, 2012.
Unlike a fuel-powered generator, the 120 Volt 20 AMP AC output solar generator runs without a carbon footprint and provides power without making a sound.
To learn more about solar power, enroll in STC’s photovoltaic systems hybrid class this summer with evening and online classes. Students will learn techniques and methods on how to install residential and commercial photovoltaic systems. For more information about the class, call 912.443.5859.
Battery Recycling Drop-Off: 8AM – 12PM, Friday, April 20, 2012 Last year, Savannah Technical College collected more than 2,000 pounds of recycled batteries through the college’s partnership with Huntingdon Restoration, Inc. in a battery recycling effort for Earth Day. On Friday, April 20, the college will serve as a drop-off location for crank batteries, like those used in cars, boats, lawn mowers or generators. Smaller consumer batteries will also be collected from 8 a.m. until noon in the rear parking lot of the Savannah campus, 5717 White Bluff Road.
Companies and individuals looking to recycle larger batteries are encouraged to contact HRI directly for pickup or for a location capable of handling larger batteries. The phone number is 912.234.2798 or by email at email@example.com
Proceeds from the battery collection will benefit the American Red Cross.
