Emeryville, California, USA and Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
YouSolar and the Green School Bali (GSB) are pleased to announced that the parties have entered into a partnership agreement under which YouSolar will provide design services and technology to GSB. GSB intends to expand its local renewable energy production and storage on campus, while providing learning opportunities for the students and the broader community.
This project aims to demonstrate the value of new methods for generating, storing, managing and distributing renewable energy that work effectively against the limitations of the existing infrastructure and technical support in Bali. The longer term vision is to get GSB fully off the grid through a reliable and readily maintainable solution. In this project YouSolar will use its proprietary PowerBloc™ technology to deliver constant and high quality power to GSB. YouSolar’s modular technology allows for the easy, efficient and seamless integration of the school’s existing solar array and hydro turbine with new and additional sources of renewable energy, such as an additional solar array or even stationary bicycles. All energy generation, management and distribution can be monitored and analyzed for student learning, while the system delivers clean and useful power.
