Solar

Solar has become an effective and inexpensive form of energy production in a variety of markets around the world.  Most commonly, solar is used for electricity production, totaling over 300 gigawatts of worldwide capacity as of 2016.  However, because of the modular nature of solar, the same technology that is covering huge swaths of land for utility-scale electricity production can be utilized on a much smaller scale.  For us, solar is being used for water pumping systems in rural communities in Central America.  The benefits are the same in large and small scale applications:  tried-and-true (tested) technology; long life and durability; no ongoing fuel costs; very low operational and maintenance expense; and simplicity of design.
