Solar Power Being Utilized in Creative Ways

Thin film solar power is being incorporated into the mainstream in very creative ways.  These two videos show how thin film solar can power a small car, as well as cover over 10 acres of an existing landfill in Georgia.  Thin film solar provides the much needed flexibility for certain applications, which results in much needed renewable and sustainable power.  For installations of significant size thin film solar provides a rather impressive visual scene that can be easily detected from aircraft.  Each new application gives the general public more reason to accept solar power as a viable energy alternative that will result in reduced energy bills and provide a more environmentally sustainable solution to our energy demands.

If you haven’t checked out how affordable going solar is, I invite you to go on-line and check out the cost of solar arrays from, Lowe’, and Home Depot.  Add to that the 30% federal tax credit and it becomes even more affordable.  However, federal tax credits for solar end at the end of 2016.  Time to make plans!  Time to go SOLAR!
