SEROWE – An official from the Botswana Technology Centre (BOTEC), Ms Gloria Seitei, has implored Batswana to use solar power because it is free of charge after installation; it is reliable and friendly to the ozone layer.

She said though it is a little expensive to install solar panels and related equipment, users will thereafter derive benefits from the suns energy without any cost.

Ms Seitei told Serowe residents during a kgotla meeting addressed by the Minister of Communications, Science and Technology, Mrs Pelonomi Venson-Moitoi on Thursday that Batswana could also use the photovoltaic energy at their cattle posts.

She said the suns energy could be used to pump water from boreholes. She explained that BOTEC has manufactured a solar-power device for the hearing impaired, which is also exported to other countries.

Mr Richard Shamukuni, an official of the Department of Radiation Protection who was part of the Ministers entourage, took the audience through the dangers of radiation emitting devices such as X-rays commonly used in health facilities and in mineral explorations.

He said the department was mandated to make people aware of the risks posed by radiation and to ensure that its [continue reading]

  1. Letter to MA Governor Deval Patrick:

    Hello again! Just wanted to let you know that Novotech of Acton, Massachusetts has won a US Patent for a revolutionary solar thermal power system breakthrough. We know your Administration is always looking for Massachusetts companies who are making headway and Novotech is Exceptional!

    As you might have heard from our working colleagues at MIT this Solar Thermal Road Power System uses existing roads and parking lot asphalt to gather radiant heat and transfer it to power transformers that directly create electric power! We call it …
    S.u.c.c.e.s.s. = Solar Unlimited Collecting Efficiency Supply System!

    And the unique property of Efficiency is that it actually cools as it works!
    We believe it is the answer to global warming – right here from a Massachusetts Company!!!

    We are developing a working model of this patented process in Charlestown, MA and Holyoke, MA to be online generating very shortly. Novotech’s President & CEO Mike Huien is the US Patent holder and is projecting a $120 Million industry in the first two years of development adding more than 17,000 jobs! ROI is less than one-year!!

    Here is a link to a 20-second slideshow.

    If you have any questions please let me know.
    This really will be a jewel in your answers to our energy needs in Massachusetts and worldwide!
