A few weeks ago we published a follow-up article about the solar.lowtechmagazine.com project: "How sustainable is a solar powered website?"

The article is a very extensive research into the embedded energy costs of this setup and how to lower that. Additionally we have some statistics on visitors (865k unique), energy use (18.1 KWh) and uptime (98.2%) after more than a year of operation and what conclusions to draw from that.

There is quite some overcapacity in the system, so to increase our efficiency one approach would be to host multiple servers on that off-grid solar system. But that is scaling up. Instead the #lowtech solution we opted for is seeing how we can do the same with smaller batteries, smaller solar panel and hosting more sites on the same machine. To that end we've started migrating #french, #spanish and #dutch language sites to the solar server as well.

Anyway here is the whole thing with all the details!

A little sketch I made accidentally this morning. :)

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what. justine-haupt.com/rotarycellph
