Solar Powered ATM Cash Machine on an Island!

The Tiki Hut ATM is in Bali, fittingly located on the campus of Green School. Because of Green School’s M.O. of being, well, green, they wanted to solve their situation of forcing people to drive to an ATM 8 miles away from its campus to get money. But Green School didn’t want to build an ordinary ATM—one that would mar the tropical island with run of the mill concrete and power sucking wires—so they did something different. They found a large stone to bolt the ATM machine on, built the booth from bamboo and used four solar panels attached to giant bamboo to power the whole set up.

Pretty cool!

ETA: This would get set alight in my town lol.

Awesome !

I wonder if that ATMs fees are higher than the normal ones. I know here in where i live we can get charged up to $2 for using these if they are not your own bank's machine!

They do have Solar Powered ATMs already in other places, Vortex Engineering is a company based in India that makes these machines. Although i have to say, they aren't nearly as nice as the Green School one!
