Watly is a solar energy system specially designed for developing countries, it is capable of storing electricity, purifying water and connecting local residents to the Internet.
After piloting a prototype of the system in Ghana, the company prepares to create Watly 3.0, a larger machine that can generate more renewable energy.
Watly was funded through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise funds to upgrade its system, which is considered “the largest solar energy system in the world.”
Watly 3.0 measures 40 meters long, it is designed to purify 5,000 liters of water every day for at least 15 years. The system can purify water from all kinds of pollutants and even desalinate seawater.
The company says its system can also provide power for 3,000 people – all thanks to solar power.
They have been working since 2013 on systems to supply renewable energy to developing countries. With offices in Spain and Italy, Watly mainly wants to help communities in Africa, providing them with as many needs as they can with a single system, without environmental damage or emitting greenhouse gases. The Watly 3.0 system promises all of that and more.
