Puerto Rico’s power grid crisis has triggered renewed interest in solar energy. That’s what happens when a hurricane takes down 100 percent of a U.S. territory’s power grid and leaves millions of people in the dark.
And it’s only going to get worse: The hurricane was so devastating that 75 percent of the island likely will be without electricity for months as the power grid is rebuilt, pole by pole, line by line.
The U.S. mainland is not immune to such devastation, either. America’s power grid is the oldest in the developed world – and the most poorly designed, too. While other countries place their power lines below ground, our power grid remains above ground, leaving it susceptible to storms. No wonder we have more blackouts than other nations!
All it takes is a major earthquake – or a cyberattack or terrorist attack – to take out most or all of the grid and send us back to the 1800s.
America’s renewed interest in solar energy, though, has left many people asking a series of questions: Where do I start? Can I afford to go solar? Should I go with a stationary or portable system? Can I maintain my lifestyle with solar? And what’s the difference in AC and DC?
That’s where the book “Solar Energy Breakthroughs” can help. Written by a solar energy expert, this simple book tells you everything you need to know to buy your first solar power system. At 160 pages with 17 short chapters, it proves just enough detail without getting too complex. It’s written for beginners!
