Solar Power at the Beach

June 23, 2009


This morning my son Henry and I went out to the beach to see the sunrise. It was amazing but it got me thinking about harnessing the power of the sun.  I can confidently say that I have not seen a solar panel once in all the years we have been coming here, and come to think about it at any beach…ever.  As much sun as these homes get day in and day out, there is a huge opportunity to collect that energy and use it to power these homes.  Especially if they are lightly used in the winter, you could probably pay for your summer bills by just selling the power back to the grid all winter.  I would imagine the payoff is pretty quick.  I’m just saying, if you are reading this and you own a beach house, you owe it to yourself to look into solar, you just might just find that pot of gold you were looking for as it rises over the Atlantic Ocean.

    I like your enthusiasm. If you are really interested in alternative energy, check out this website. It’s kind of like a myspace for alternative and renewable energy!
