Youth corner: Sok Try

Dear Sam Rany,

Thank for your answer in the May 23 issue of LIFT regarding how to stay green with my bike in Phnom Penh.

So far, I’ve found my own solution to keep my solar-powered bike.

Luckily, I have found a parking place nearby. Now, if I want to, I can carry my battery to a charging point.

Of course, difficulties still remain. It’s hard to take out the battery in the rain and the box containing the battery is fragile.

Most importantly, I’m saving money on gas and I’m not emitting any gas or noise pollution.

It’s nice to drive so silently.

I’m getting up to a five-hour drive after charging the battery for six hours.

Regards,
Sok Try
