Solar Challenge Chihuahua: Mexico solar car race
I recently heard from Victron Energy’s Sales Manager for Central & South America. Gerrit Jacobs is based in Panama and with his help Victron have sponsored (along with others) and donated equipment to the Mechatronic faculty of the Technological University of Tijuana, Mexico. The equipment has been used to power and monitor their solar and human-powered car, in preparation for the Solar Challenge Chihuahua.
This solar car race is supported by the Chihuahua AC Solar Challenge, a non-profit organisation founded in the city of Chihuahua in 2013. Its aims are to promote the work between universities and business, through research and innovation in solar energy.
