Our renewable energy program can always use items to speed our research and educational outreach program. If you can help, please contact us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, we request support money for equipment, parts, information sources, printing pamphlets, batteries, etc.
Please donate to the "Renewable Energy Index Fund", DMES, Attn: Ms. Carmen Serrano, Administrator, DMES; Florida Tech, 150 W. University Blvd., Melbourne FL 32901.
The Department of Marine and Environmental Systems (DMES) needs a ?.
Also looking for a few good musicians (say, synthesizer or guitar, etc.) who would be interested in participating in a solar music fair event. We now have found two excellent musicians, and are looking for more to support a Solar Music Festival. Electric instruments will be powered by solar and wind energy.
Deep-discharge batteries, 12 V, frame size 24 or 27
Funding for student assistance in webpage development, data analysis, internet research, student projects (waterwheel), etc.
Helpful Items to Enhance the Program:
Small inkjet printer for instant brochures at demonstrations
TV with video cassette player for fair or festival programs
Small oscilloscope for portable use
Publication and literature funding
Small hand tools or 12-volt electrical tools; email first as to our current needs
Periodical subscription funding
Renewable Energy books for our Evans Library, even old books
Equipment maintenance funding: paint, brushes, wire, meters, tires, etc.
Renewable Energy Conference attendance funding
Fulfilled Needs to Date:
higher power (~30-50W/channel) car radio (preferably with a line-input stereo jack) and/or a >50W+ power amplifier to be used in our wind and solar Field Station-1 trailer and/or in our boat "Toot" (which participated in the Homecoming Parade on February 21, 2004.) These sound devices will receive power from a photovoltaic (PV) array and a wind turbine. (The wind turbine won't be running during towing, of course.)
While the equipment was used for attention-getting music during the Homecoming Parade, it normally would be used for computer audio for public demonstrations and renewable energy advocacy events. We powered an emissions tester at the Space Coast Clean Cities Alternative Fuel Vehicle show "Florida's Odyssey" at the Florida Solar Energy Center in Cocoa April 2, 2004. In 2005, we provided power to Mike Beckert's sound system at the President's Picnic.
-let us know if you can donate any of these items!
