Cool Earth Reshaping #Solar Energy with Balloons. #greenbuilding

Did you know? Electric power plants produced 17,320 terawatt-hours in 2005. In 2030 the world is projected to need about 33,264 terawatt-hours, nearly double the amount of 2005. The amount of sunlight that hits the Earth’s surface in one hour is enough to power the entire world for one year. How many solar power plants would the U.S. need to meet its electric needs? One solar power plant utilizing Cool Earth’s technology , covering 150 miles by 150 miles, would generate enough power to meet all the electrical needs of the U.S. through 2030. Livermore, CA-based Cool Earth has unveiled a breakthrough solar energy system that can ultimately produce enough clean energy to satisfy the global energy crisis. With its patented concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology, this revolutionary breakthrough dramatically reduces the cost and time to develop solar power plants capable of ...
