CCHRC members and sponsors provide vital, sustaining support for our mission to promote and advance healthy, durable, and sustainable shelter for cold climates. Donations help fuel many projects, including sustainable prototype houses in rural Alaska, renewable energy tests, and the production of educational videos, publications and multimedia. Your contribution to CCHRC makes change happen by providing valuable support to our research efforts.
This project will set up a bicycle generator to use for tours and classes at CCHRC. When pedaled, the bike turns on different types of light bulbs to demonstrate how much energy is required by each. It will serve as a hands-on display of how mechanical energy is transferred to electrical energy as well as a demonstration of energy efficiency. This will increase the impact of tours by providing hands-on learning and will be available for our education partners such as the University of Alaska Fairbanks, REAP, and Information Insights.
