SHAWCO & DELL Solar Computer Lab


Grey Green installed a 1.5kW off-grid Solar PV system in a computer container. The container uses state of the art computing technology sponsored by Dell, allowing up to 11 workstations to be run off one server. All equipment selected for the container is energy efficient, carrying top marks in the Energy Star ratings system, thus allowing for a smaller solar system to be used. A mixture of locally manufactured and imported equipment was used. The programme was such a success that Dell has announced that a further two solar computer lab containers will be made available for SHAWCO.
