When you think of energy, you think of electricity that powers all your electronics. In some parts of the world or country, using this energy comes at a cost and we mean dollars from electrical bills.
Recently solar power has come down in price because of newer technology and more consumers are interested more in purchasing them. We have come a long way from it being expensive back in 2010, where only people with moola had them.
Another aspect of using solar energy is that you have to be in a sunny area. Places like Southern California and Arizona are a hotspot and they are increasing in numbers on rooftops. Farmers are also implementing them as especially with all the power they need to run their farms.
The U.S government is helping perpetuate the growth of solar power by implanting policy that improves the availability of this technology to low to middle income families. The focus on these policies is a concept of shared energy especially for those who live in places with little rooftop space.
Industries Uses of Solar
Large industries like Facebook, Google and Apple are creating solar farms in desserts to help run their massive servers. These servers eat a lot up of electricity to run their databases, so cost is high. But with the help from solar farms, cost is less.
In Japan, many golf courses are being converted to farms of solar panels and some recent images have shown that it is actually aesthetic pleasing. Florida and Southern California should take cue because of the drought and lack of water, as golf courses are notorious for using a ton of water for upkeep.
