Over the course of three months, Team Alpha Millennium designed a project that will create a solution to people in need of using their Health Devices during power outages. In Spring of 2022, we created a wooden box that will contain all components needed to use electronic applications during blackouts.


Background[edit | edit source]

Students of Cal Poly Humboldt's 2022 Spring semester Engineering 215: Introduction to Design class have partnered with Appropedia for a twelve week design project. Appropedia is the world's largest organization dedicated to sharing appropriate technologies in a public setting. During the 12 week time, we will design a PV system to help with medical purposes when blackouts occur. A huge issue that has come to surface in recent volatile weather disasters is that people at home become susceptible to possible power outages rendering their at-home medical devices to fault. With our design, we would prove this to be helpful to keep the power on until emergency responders come.
