Independence day: The end of electric bills.

Independence day: The end of electric bills.

Goodbye monopoly.

The world depends on a few monopolized electric corporations, the only ones with a 'license' to produce energy. Frankly, they were needed in times past when gigantic facilities were needed to produce power. But the world has changed friends ...

In the 21st century this structure has become completely out of date. The EU has decided that we must go to a more efficient model that generates energy right where it is consumed, without the need to transport it through a gigantic, expensive, inefficient and vulnerable electricity grid. In fact, the new laws of the EU will force that by the year 2030, each European household contributes to producing its own energy. This undoubtedly means a revolution in the energy world. And incidentally the end of the electric Jurassic park.

Energy is free.

It sounds like a publicity rant, but it isn't. Solar energy is free. Work in silence. Without noise. Without smell. No moving parts. Without mechanisms. Without fuels. Without maintenance. Without causing any type of pollution. A solar panel is a glass panel, easy to produce and easy to install, resistant and with a 'useful life' of more than 30 years. You just have to direct it towards the sun and you already generate an electric current. Automatically. Without doing anything …

Doubts about the Sun?

Solar energy is the only external energy source on our planet. All other forms of energy are derived from the sun (wind, biomass) and finite (oil, gas), or uncontrollable (nuclear). Capturing solar energy directly from the Sun is the easiest and most efficient way to generate energy. A sunny day on earth is equivalent to more than what all humans need in a whole year! An area of ​​solar panels of 400 x 400 km would generate all the daily energy we need on Earth, including for industry and transport!

Any question about the utility of the sun is redundant. It is our only source of life. More powerful than a trillion nuclear reactors, but at a safe distance! (zero risk).

Is for me ?

A somewhat strange question from a planet where the Sun King supports all life forms. The strange thing would be NOT to use his immense forces. To save money. For our comfort at home. To drive cars. To stop flooding the world with CO2, oil and nuclear waste. Not always there? Completely at our disposal? Could someone appropriate the Sun and charge us a fee for consuming sunlight? Exactly. Nobody and never. We all own our sun.

For my home ?

The answer is Yes in 99% of the cases. Solar cells today can be used on roofs, terraces, gardens, cars, windows, floors and walls.

United Nations soldiers live in tents made of photovoltaic fabric that supplies power for lights, fans and computers. Spacelab runs its daily life, 35 laps a day, forever out of fuel. And this year all speed records have been broken again around the world in boats, cars and planes, with the Sun as the only source of energy.

Do you still think that installing solar energy in your house is something difficult?

The revolution in full swing.

While the manufacture of electric cars increases 20% every year, last year 30 GigaWatts have been installed in solar panels in the world. A growth of 30% per year, reaching a solar park of 100 GigaWatts installed. This is the equivalent of 100 nuclear power plants, but completely harmless, distributed among millions of small individuals and companies. 70% of all this volume has been installed in Europe. And we are only at the beginning ...
