Boy Scouts Meeting at Lake Lure Campgrounds


April 12, 2010



Strata Solar / Solar Tech South encourages the development of teaching our community and youth the benefits and basic principles of solar energy. Boy Scout Troop 314 from Raleigh, NC participated in a camping event at Lake Lure with no electricity connections and only utilizing solar power. Strata Solar / Solar Tech South taught the Boy Scouts techniques on solar cooking, solar electricity, and solar hot water. They also studied the effects of increases in carbon and how it impacts our environment. The troop then utilized our information to provide essential power and cooking techniques for outdoor education. We would like to thank Troop 314 for their excitement and eagerness to learn more about solar.
