Inroducing The Internet: No AC Needed

From Al Jazeera's Youtube Channel:

"A project in South Africa is using solar power to bring internet to people in the township of Alexandra. Peter Graham, a South African entrepreneur, launched the idea to convert a shipping container into a mobile internet shop that is powered entirely by solar energy. He hopes to promote sales and create interest by showcasing the prototype. The internet is free for students, and subsidized for adults. It is the first internet shop in the township."
