There’s no doubt the renewable resources, such as solar energy, are the future of our planet. With the impending depletion of more harmful energy sources, it only seems logical that we’d all want to work toward finding cleaner, more economically friendly ways to power all of the things that matter most to us, both on a residential and larger scale, commercial level. Solar energy is especially interesting, because it presents the idea of energy independence, allowing households to produce what they need, without relying on the grid. Unfortunately, it’s quite expensive to get your foot in the door, so to speak. This past week though, one start-up got the seed money necessary to help eliminate the cost barrier to photovoltaic energy production.
