The Dry Wave

The Wave Dry is an innovative concept that looks at drying clothes faster and in a cost-effective way. It basically is this solar device that can be charged via the windows of the house. The soaked up solar goodness is used to power the drying UV lights and hot air. Although it looks to be a bit bulky for now, I think a couple of refinements down the line, this idea can do some great good!

    How much energy does the hair dryer produce? A small hairdryer is between 1.2KW and 2.4KW. Even this does not dry the clothes instantly. So just to compete on the same time you need to generate the equivalent KWh of energy. A metre square charger will gain you about 0.4KWh for a full sunny day. And you will need a heavy large deep cycle battery to store the energy. The cost of that much solar array will be around $600 which is enough to run your hair dryer for around 4000 hours
