We have listed and or pictured resources regarding solar power devices available in different shapes and sizes, from giant revolving flower petals that open and close to glitter-sized solar cells, transparent solar panels, or a thin film that can attach to a person’s backpack or person. Clear glass panels now make utilizing solar energy invisible.
It is wonderful to see so many in B.C. already embracing solar power. Vast expanses of solar farms are being installed on both land and sea around the world. We even have solar/wind-powered floating desalination plants. Let’s get British Columbia covered with solar-powered technology, including Solar garden and street lights, solar roads and parking lots, solar-powered boats, cars, and aircraft, solar glass panels, glitter-sized solar cells, solar paint, solar panels roof tiles, ‘Solar Skin’ panels which match roofs, solar panel retracting petals, origami shaped portable chargers, solar blinds, solar-powered backpacks, and water heaters. Rural areas of B.C., normally without electricity, are lighting up, heating water tanks, and are benefitting in many ways thanks to solar energy innovations.
