Harnessing Solar Power

By Megan Myers, April 18, 2013  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

The sun generates more energy than necessary for life on Earth, yet only a fraction of that is utilized for solar power. In this video from Dark Rye, we explore harnessing its mighty power. In Arizona an innovative company makes thin-film photovoltaic modules affordable and recyclable, while an engineer in Hawai'i addresses the challenge of storage.

Have you explored solar power for your home? Please share in the comments!

I live in Rockaway Beach Queens NY most of my community was destroyed by sandy. We need a decent type of choices of organic fruits and vegetables. We live in a beach community where most of the business rely on profit for the summer trade. But Rockaway has really no choices when it comes to healthy living. Hoping to hear from someone who would like to give us better choices. Thanks Pat Andre
