Day 3: Kyllini and Lesvos

Day 3: Kyllini and Lesvos

After two installations as a full team we decided we had enough training and split up for two ambitious journeys. Six of us piled in the old, rickety rental van to drive all the way to the west coast and install a solar hub in Kyllini for the first time, while Alexandros and Erika flew to the island of Lesvos, close to Turkey, to provide two more charging stations in the Kara Tepe camp.

Day 2: Skaramangas

Day 2: Skaramangas

Our second stop of the trip was Skaramangas: the largest refugee camp in Greece, located right on the coast of Athens. If you’re like us, you might think that location would make it easy to find. After a stop at the wrong camp, consulting with pedestrians, and countless U-turns, we joined a caravan of large busses that were pulling into a massive abandoned shipyard

Day 1: Ritsona

Day 1: Ritsona

Today we had an incredible experience installing our first unit of the week at Ritsona refugee camp.

We had visited this camp before, last June, and were now coming to check-up on our old unit and install our new updated pilot version. We had never imagined the camp would transform so much in so little time.
