Solar Energy Can Save Water But First It Must Be Approved and Built

While many are aware of reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as a benefit of renewable energy, the World Resources Institute now finds that the switch to solar energy from fossil fuel electricity generation can also help save water. According to the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, if electricity is supplied from a power plant, it takes 3,000-6,000 gallons of water over the course of a year to power just one incandescent light bulb for twelve hours per day. Whereas fossil fuel power plants use water in the cooling process, solar panels require virtually no water to run or maintain. This finding is particularly relevant in the Middle East and North Africa, which have abundant solar resources and face scarce water supplies.
