The Future Of Tuk Tuk Transport in Panajachel Guatemala, Lake Atitlan
As best I can surmise, this is the company that sells this particular Tuk Tuk. https://tuktukfactory.com/ Solar, and Wind is crushing their competition for production of electricity, Solar panels are around 24-26 percent efficient, and one of the greatest races on the planet is happening for highest efficiency. And, the other race is to find the battery breakthrough that can store this energy. The 3rd Industrial Revolution is happening, to me, this is super exciting, as the noise, the pollution, the whole world will be 100 percent different in less than 10 years. I will see this happen. https://cleantechnica.com/2016/12/25/cost-of-solar-power-vs-cost-of-wind-power-coal-nuclear-natural-gas/ Wise people who want to be entrepreneurs can start importing these Tuk Tuks into the developing world now. As best I can surmise, for around 10,000 USD one could start slow. This is a fun move to make, wish people were more about fun, and less about money, but making moves to enjoy a better life, a life with a purpose to improve.

Hey Andy, Thanks for sharing this video. All I can say is it would be awesome if the Guatemalans could grab hold of this and start moving toward the electric Tuk Tuks. Well, anyone for that matter, but since I'm living in Guatemala right now (more specificaly chaotic Pana...and have seen what's happening in many formerly quiet towns that used to have clean air...I am thinking more specifically Guatemala at the moment). Maybe you could get the conversation going about that, with people here in Pana...for starters, and at least get people thinking about the possibilities. There will be the challange of getting enough people on board so places can be set up to recharge...with some alternative arrangement for days when the electricity goes off - which, as you know, tends to happen every so often here. I know the desire is there to make positive environmental changes here in Guatemala so, it will be interesting to watch how this develops. It's going to have to somewhere along the line...
Patricia, I believe it is inevitable that Pana, and the whole world adopt electric Tuk Tuk's, cars, motorcycles, And, the developing countries, cities like Panajachel, Guatemala could benefit. I wrote an email to the company, and will call them Monday, maybe go discuss with the local Tuk Tuk sales companies here in Pana, show them photos, make a small brochure, or video explanation for their smartphones. The electric Tuk Tuk's is an ideas worth spreading. Thanks, your friend, Andy Lee Graham
Fun is right! I actually want to be a tuc tuk driver after watching this.
