Sexy solar energy fields from around the world.
The need for smart energy is high on the list of global priorities–up there with water and our waste issues. Pumping fossil fuel has gone on for far too long. Around the world, countries are addressing the need for alternative energy sources, and using smart renewable alternatives like our sun, which produces a ton of energy if you are in the right place. It is estimated that over a 12-hour time period, useable, solar energy can amount to 438,000 watt-hours per square foot per year in one location.
Regions around the world are taking the initiative to shift from fossil fuel energy sources to solar. For example, recently Los Angeles launched the largest solar energy rooftop program in the world. Many of these solar field projects are a fusion of impeccable design aesthetic and sharp scientific consideration. Here’s a round up of beautiful and impressive solar energy fields from around the world. Who every said energy wasn’t sexy?
