Xantrex donated a powerful inverter/charger system, the Freedom SW 3024, to empower Student Participation in Learning Aquatic Science and History’s educational program on a steamboat operating on the Delaware River.

The educational program is a non-profit organization that has provided two-hour educational tours for more than 10 years in the Lambertville, N.J., area.

During the tour, participants are engaged in discussion, role playing and experiments to learn about clean-water ecology, steamboat technology and the history of the steamboat era.

With the addition of the Freedom SW 3024 and system control panel, the program will be able to achieve a new level of outreach to its community by providing more educational programs and improving participant engagement.

Freedom SW 3024 combines an inverter, a battery charger and a transfer switch to provide power management for commercial and recreational applications such as boats, buses and RVs.

Complemented by the SCP’s backlit LCD onscreen menu system, the duo power the organization’s educational programs for extended periods of time without fossil fuel-burning generators out on the water.
