“Be part of the solution” is a comic featuring four characters – two wind turbines called Wendy (f) and Rudi (m) and two solar bots called Ilanga (m) and Khanya (f).
The comic starts with Rudi going home from his job as a wind turbine for the national grid. At home he meets Wendy and suggests they have a cosy evening and watch a DVD with Ilanga and Khanya. While making popcorn and tea and preparing for the evening, he realises that he feels cold and leaves the kitchen to switch on the heater to its maximum heat setting, forgetting about the boiling water in the kettle and the popcorn on the stove. He also forgets that he left the light on, as well as the extractor fan above the stove and that he left the hot water running and the fridge open.
