The idea of discarding available wind or solar output is anathema, imposed on power producers when production from these sources exceeds what the grid can accept.
If rolled out globally, the islands could offset the total global emissions from fossil fuels.
Troy Billett is working to provide power and purify water around the world, one box and one village at a time.
"I think they'll give me a detention but it'll be worth it."
The president has repeatedly joked that TVs would cut out if the U.S. used wind as a source of renewable energy.
