Are you building a home or moving to a remote location? If so, then you might want to seriously consider using solar energy to power your place. Getting the local energy company to come out to you might be expensive or impossible, so using renewable solar energy is a great way to ensure you will have all the energy you need.
Carbon based pollution will be tremendously reduced when cars that are powered by the sun become widely available. But, there are other devices that work well on solar energy. Solar powered generators can be purchased, and are a great source of energy in emergencies.
