Tiny Watts Project

A Big Tiny Community

We’re launching a new web-based platform to create a nationwide community of “tiny watts”–very small applications of solar PV and solar thermal–because even small applications add up in a big way! Think solar backpacks and suitcases for charging cell phones and laptops; solar lights; solar cookers; low-tech solar water heaters, food dryers and much more. These technologies are affordable and available to everyone, everywhere.

Tiny Watts will aim to enroll thousands of people – kids and adults across every spectrum – to fall in love with the many uses of solar and become Solar Citizens.

The goal? Let’s add up all those tiny applications and get to a million tiny watts!

Tiny Watts Solar Citizens will be able to sign up on this site, discover product info and do-it-yourself projects, plus access more resources from other Solar Citizens. We’ll track the way small actions make a big difference.

In the meantime, please contribute ideas, support funding, or volunteer as a team member. Help us get TinyWatts off the ground and help make us a #TinyWatts #SolarNation.
