I spent a most productive and pleasant morning in the company of electronics wizard Alex Brown.

Yes, the long awaited Renewable Energy systems from established InnerTuba supporters Ashleigh Engineering Services. are now at the build stage. Pictured is Alex testing the Schmidt Dynohubs and Solar PV panels… 14 years old and still delivering!

The initial build will consist of the Schmidt hubs being put through Alex’s bespoke Datalogging Microtechnology (the really clever bit) to a 24v battery pack. From there an array of LED flashing amber lights – the really bright ones, as seen on breakdown trucks etc – will be mounted on the TubaTrailer. Be safe, be seen !

From that Hi-Viz start, analysis of the performance of the system will follow during winter road trials. It will develop and grow into something much more sophisticated over time, under Alex Brown’s stewardship.

See it all happen here …. Thanks Alex!
