Most people know that I love taking pictures (and those that didn’t figured it out from my last blog post). But most people don’t walk around Morocco taking pictures of PV cells (see above). This is your classic “off grid” application. They have plenty of sunshine, but the local electric company can’t get the grid anywhere near. Yes, these folks are humble with their electricity needs (how many of these would be required to power my house….), but nice to see a real implementation.
However, for a beautiful example of what solar could/should be like, check out Casablanca airport. Inside the terminal is a big board, indicating exactly how much power is currenty being generated, and what costs and carbons are being saved. I was envious…. you would expect that Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport to set such an example to the world, no???
