Solar for the People

It is a mindset, right or wrong, that the utilization of solar energy is but for the elite few who have the means to indulge their greener whims. This article takes brief glimpse into whether that supposition is in fact accurate or not.

Before a judgment of such a nature can be made it is important to take a brief look at what solar energy is really all about. Solar energy is our greatest natural renewable resource. The scope of solar energy is megalith if viewed for the “powerhouse” which it is. It is estimated that one solar hour of power can meet the energy demand of the earth for one year. Among all of the renewable energy sources, solar electrical generation is greatest in might. Solar energy has application which can include the harnessing of solar energy to the benefit of those who use its power.

Can it be said then, that the tapping into this giant and her resources are for the select few whom have the financial means with which to better their lives and have the privilege of making our planet better for tomorrow by living green today. Is the harnessing of solar energy really the luxury it is made out to be?

The truth is that solar energy is free. And it is a common misconception that it costs an arm and a leg to be able to utilize this resource in the lives of those who crucially need it the most – the poverty stricken, the uneducated – the masses of people to whom its benefits actually belong. Solar energy should be available to be harnessed by everyman. From the man in his jet plane to the cow herd in his rural kraal. Solar energy makes for the improvement and upliftment of the standard of living to all who use it. It certainly makes a hut, with no electricity in which there is no light by which to study, a classroom because homework and school work can be done at night in that which was previously a dark place. Literally and figuratively.

Once set up, the running of a solar system is very cheap to maintain because the fact is that sunlight is abundant and accessible to everyone. Solar energy does not use fuel so it does not cost anything to generate electricity and no fuels used to generate energy implies that the environment is not negatively affected because there is simply no pollution as a result of its use. Going green is certainly not only for the man with padded pockets. We can all contribute to making our planet more sustainable for those who will follow in our footsteps.

It is also a misconception that to start-up one’s solar energy lifestyle costs a fortune. With very careful planning and professional unbiased advice it is possible to set up a solar system for individuals, families, villages and cities that can only improve the lives of those who are touched by this gift that does not stop giving. At this juncture let it be said that professional objective system analysis is the basis for any successful system. It’s not about building a system that could run the entire Soviet Union but designing a system for the betterment of those who will use the system, however small and however meager their resources to put the system in place. Once installed the systems is virtually cost and maintenance free and a carefully planned system can be augmented as and when the financial resources are there to facilitate its growth. Remember one does not buy a Rolls Royce to park in a garage you do not have! The important thing is that the fundamental requirements for that specific need are met – no matter the size of that need.

It can be said then that the lives of many can be raised up by the use of a resource that is abundantly available to all. It can be said then that we all have a part to play, that both rich and poor have a valuable contribution to make in conserving the planet we inhabit. - Your number 1 Gizmo Store!
