Solar Powered Loo in Stumptown

Portland is designing and building new solar powered public toilets. They have 3 solar panels on top used to power heaters that prevent the pipes from freezing. 

The prototype has a hefty $140k price tag. The city is hoping they can get the price down to $25k and can sell them to other cities.
