meeco Group partner SOLTEKenergias presents sun2go at “Arco Iris” kindergarten

 Zug/Setúbal.  On June 16th 2013, The meeco Group’s own portable energy solution – sun2go – was present at the Eco-Schools day which took place at the “Arco Iris” kindergarten in Setúbal, Portugal. The presence of the sun2go was made possible thanks meeco’s partner in the Portuguese market, SOLTEKenergias, who demonstrated the product’s power generation capacity to the pupils that day.

Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable program worldwide developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and which “aims to empower students to be the change our sustainable world needs by engaging them in fun, action-orientated learning”. At the event, the pupils were able to see the sun2go in operation during the entire day, where it efficiently supplied power to devices such as a laptop, fan, printer and a lamp. “The meeco Group strongly supports this kind of initiative as it spurs environmental awareness among the children and develops future generations who are aware of today’s solar energy possibilities,” says Dieter Trutschler, Sales Director of The meeco Group.

The sun2go is a solar photovoltaic portable energy trolley, weighing about 30 kg which can supply power both AC and DC power in a fully off-grid environment or in emergency situations. “The sun2go’s presentation at the Eco-Schools day in Setúbal showed us that solar technology is also accepted by the youngest generations. The children at the kindergarten experienced how easy to use and reliable solar energy can be as it powered electrical devices that were needed during the day,” comments Peer-Olav Schmidt, meeco’s representative in Portugal and Angola.
