Due to the high cost associated with solar energy solutions, even with the government incentives, solar energy is still less preferred than the fossil based energy resources. It is widely believed that these fossil based energy resources will deplete in approximately 50 years. Many countries around the world have started investing in renewable energy resources, such as solar energy, to avoid the upcoming energy crisis.
United States government has shown strong support for green alternative energy efforts. Several academic institutions have teams working on multiple aspects of the solar energy field. However, solar energy technology is not developed enough yet to replace fossil based energy resources at this time. This could change in the foreseeable future with concerted effort. Although the general public has shown interest in solar energy alternatives, it has not become practical for most households due to its high cost of deployment.
Our mission is to increase awareness around the upcoming energy crisis and contribute to the future of solar energy. Our website will have reviews & interviews of university teams, industry leaders, and government agencies to expose solar energy projects more to the public. Our hope is to become a central point for these teams & individuals to learn about others and increase collaboration. More importantly, we will be encouraging, supporting, and funding high school students & teachers who work or would like to work on solar energy projects.
