Solar Farm Ring Around the Moon?

A Japanese Company Shimizu wants to Build an 11,000 KM solar farm ring on the Moon. The electric power generated from the solar belts will be be transferred to the transmission facilities near the Moon. After that, the electric power will be converted back to #microwaves and #lasers, only to be beamed back to Earth and then again the beams are converted back to electricity at power plants. Read more

Imagine solar cells that can turn even artificial ambient light — like the kind produced by street lamps, for example — into power.

Happy Valentines Day - Heart Shaped Solar Farm

An extraordinary heart-shaped solar farm is set to be built on the Pacific island of New Caledonia. The 2MW “Heart of New Caledonia” is being built by solar company Conergy and should start producing power for 750 homes from early next year. The plant, commissioned by local beverage company Froico SA, is expected to save around 2m tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions over its projected 25-year lifetime and reduce the French overseas territory’s dependence on oil, gas and coal, which generate the majority of its power today.  Read more
