The Tech Challenge 2014
Harnessing the Wind
The wind has been used since humans first put up sails. It's now your turn to harness this amazing natural resource.
In California we spend 19% of our total energy consumption moving and processing water. This scarce resource travels long distances to get to your tap and even climbs almost 2,000 feet over the Tehachapi Mountains to get to Los Angeles using enough energy each year to power the entire city for about two months. Imagine if you were able to do this with a clean renewable energy source.
The Challenge: harness the wind to move water to the people who need it!
At the end of October, The Tech will provide the layout for the teams to test their device on; this is called the Test Rig.
The Test Rig dimensions and description can be found here at the end of October.
