Nearly all forms of energy we use today to power our vehicles and appliances originate as a form of solar energy. Our indirect fuels of Oil, gas, coal, wood and even hydroelectric resources simply wouldn’t exist without the sun. Given any thought at all, most of us realize the foolishness of squandering these valuable, usually irreplaceable, natural resources. Especially so, since at the same time we are polluting our air, water, and generally our environment through their increased use. Yet, we continue in our short sightedness to waste the resources given us by the sun rather than going to the source and harnessing the sun’s limitless energy directly. Slowly our society has accepted using the sun’s abundance; but only when it has been shown to be the most cost effective method. With the rising costs of other choices, the decision for solar is making more economic sense.
