Solar power is now on an unstoppable roll. This is the message not from politicians and pressure groups – whatever side of the climate change fence they stand — but from hard-headed businessmen, corporate and private investors, as well as increasingly the man on the street.
The reason is simple. Solar is cheap and becoming cheaper, and that makes the sector a highly attractive target for the moneymen who see an opportunity to turn a profit. The general public is also getting ever more enthusiastic about solar PV, as they see the financial sense it now makes to invest in the technology. As OPEN previously reported many of the new innovations in solar, such as as a solar powered school, a tuk tuk which crossed from India to London, solar water taxis, a solar aircraft which flew around the world and solar television have been hitting the headlines.
