The Programage Solar Project or Solar Computing is a programage.org project aimed at harnessing the power of the sun to generate computing power. In order to achieve a sustainable green development in the field of computing. This project was initiated by Programage ltd CEO Liambi Willy and by it's completion should turn sunny Africa into a worldwide affordable computing super power. Sub-Saharian Africa has indeed one of the most large exposure to the sun per year, and harnesting this to generate computing power is what this project aims at.
To harness the power of sun of course programage had to acquire a solar panel coupled to a battery, that is for around 100 Watt capacity. and couple it to a low consumption computer device that would be then plugged to the internet.
