The youtube video above shows Ajarn Nun Phakdee teaching about solar power in Thai and English.
Looking for a way to power a water pump and supply electricity, where there is no power in this remote area of Thailand, the choice was simple; solar power. Never having the chance to have solar power because the cost was prohibitive, Thailand has made the impossible possible. The entire system, excluding the water pump itself is costing less than $3,000 U.S.! Thinking of no electric or water bill turns me on, I will be happy thanks to Ajarn Nun.

Ajarn Nun Phakdee is well known in Thailand as the foremost expert in affordable solar power. He’s not the person sitting in a class room teaching from a text book, but travels to different locations designing, creating, building and installing solar systems throughout Thailand. Ajarn Nun doesn’t have a regular crew he pays, but teaches people interested in learning about solar power hands on. As people learn by doing he has created a massive following, trained to install and maintain their own system. As he travels to different locations to install solar systems he posts where he will be and different people he has helped show up to give him a hand as volunteers, all continuing to learn as he directs the installation, each person learning more all the time. He seems to delegate the work as if he were a symphony conductor, at ease with everyone. Ajarn Nun speaks some English and has a good personality which makes everything happen smoothly.

The experience of learning and being part of his operation is truly rewarding. What a blessing to have met and learned from such a teacher as Ajarn Nun. He can be found on YouTube and on Face Book, search for Phakdee Nun.
