DC Redundant Hard Drive

Mississippi Foundation for Renewable Energy has just completed a home brew electronics project. What we have named the “DC Redundant Drive” is an aluminum cased, fan cooled, dual hard drive that backs up our website backwoodsenergy.org every five minutes on an alternating schedule. It is powered by USB port or 12v or 5v direct current power source. We will post pictures of the construction process as soon as possible. Stay tuned!

DC Desktop Computer

Mississippi Foundation for Renewable Energy is planning to build a desktop computer for our off-grid office. The idea is that the computer will plug-in directly to a 12 (10.5 -16.5) volt DC power source (no inverter). We welcome any and all ideas and advise from our computer savvy followers. Let us know what you think about the project and definitely give a little feedback on the details if you have any.
