Our solar lighting training covers three different types of solar lighting for individuals or for use in remote camps (e.g. water protector camps).  They are solar Lights in Bucket, our Handcart Mobile Power Stations (for lighting and also phone and computer charging), and our Solar in a Suitcase for 6th to 12th grade school classrooms (taught in conjunction with We Care Solar).

RCR and Lakota Solar Enterprises have built and or installed more than a thousand solar furnaces on more than fifteen reservations.  These solar air heating systems provide supplemental heat and can reduce the yearly heating bill by up to 30% for just pennies a day!

This training is based around a pull behind trailer and can be used to power construction needs or power camp radio stations, as well as multiple computers, phones and drones.

Whether your needs are agricultural or ranch and livestock related, solar water pumping is a simple and inexpensive application worth exploring!  For example, we run our solar powered pump from our well into a thousand gallon tank that feeds the dripline system at the Solar Warrior Farm.
