    I think many of you here will find this intriguing. I found this page threw Google:

    Wouldn't it be great if we could get these! We can save money on electricity and people who don't even have access to electricity can have chicks! I love some of the places "green" technology takes us.

    Is it on a battery?

    What happens when the sun goes down?

    Yes, it uses a battery and a solar battery charger. I think you could do the same thing with a Genesis 1588 (which operates on 12V DC) by using an automotive battery and a solar charger.
