Clean Water... Using Solar?

Clean Water... Using Solar?

Access to clean drinking water is a significant problem for the developing world, and solar power might just be the solution.

Today’s solar news could be game changing for those without clean water.

A French company, HelioWater, has created a device that takes sea water and turns it into clean drinking water using the power of the sun ☀️. This method uses evaporation, condensation, and mineralization to filter the water. HelioWater’s device is powered by a large solar panel at the base, making the whole process completely autonomous!

The company says this could be a great solution in disaster relief and refugee camps, where clean water might not be available.

1 Terawatt Solar Milestone

1 Terawatt Solar Milestone

Did humans just achieve a solar milestone? Humans have officially installed enough solar panels to generate 1 terawatt of electricity. 🤯 Now, you might be wondering, “tera-what?” Dad jokes aside, a terawatt is one trillion watts, and the term is often used to describe reaaally big amounts of energy. For example, the entire energy consumption of all humans is roughly 17.7 terawatts. According to predictions, dozens of terawatts of solar capacity will be needed to decarbonize the earth’s elec

Target's First Solar Powered Store

Target's First Solar Powered Store

Target’s tagline “Expect more. Pay Less.” has taken on an entirely new meaning with one of its location’s newest changes – a Target in California has succeeded at becoming fully solar. 🎉 Target just unveiled its first net-zero energy store: it is located in Vista, California with 1800 carport solar panels and 1,620 rooftop panels. They also installed more than 1300 LED lights, which will cut about 10% of Target’s total energy bill. At Wildgrid we are very excited to see this type of implement

Floating Solar Panels

Floating Solar Panels

Portugal is making the switch to solar. But not in the way that you’d think. Portugal has installed 12,000 panels on top of a lake. Specifically, the Alquenva reservoir – a human made water source that’s already being used for hydropower. So yeah, this move is pretty extra (in the best way 🕺🏽). These panels will produce 87.5 gigawatt/hours of electricity a year, and are paired with lithium batteries to supply 1,500 families with power in the neighboring towns of Moura and Portel. However, w
