It’s easy to think of solar energy in first world terms. It’s better for the environment, it reduces independence on foreign oil, etc.
But think about the potential it has to drastically improve the lives of developing countries.
I spoke about this recently on Capitol Hill at an event focused on the expected benefits of solar energy in the Caribbean. At a cost of a million dollars per mile, resource-strapped areas in the Caribbean can’t afford to build a power grid. No power grid, no power. And no power means life stops when the sun goes down.
Imagine how hard it would be to get ahead in life if you couldn’t continue working, reading, and learning past sundown.
Solar is the key to bringing the developing world into the modern age, and I invite you to join me in making solar energy more accessible.
