Victor with weather station

Weather Station Arrives in Nicaragua

The Pontis Weather Station arrived in Nicaragua this week and we were excited to see Victor Torrez, one of the farm training technicians, assembling it.  They will spend the next couple of months testing and learning to use the hardware before deploying on the model farm in Veracruz near Managua.

Weather Station Project

AditNW took on the challenge of sourcing an autonomous weather station for Pontis Nicaragua, a provider of farm education to the very poor in Nicaragua.  After researching existing solutions, the AditNW team realized the demands for a fully autonomous unit that could withstand the rigorous jungle environment, operate off the grid, and be usable by farmers with no training required a custom solution.  We are pleased to be testing the beta test unit in the US during the summer.  So far, testing has gone well.
