The rationale for solar energy
The peak in global oil extraction is coming this decade. The decline of oil from one year to the next will have a profound impact on humanity. Preparing for this eventuality now with solar energy is good insurance and a sound investment in its own right.
In the long run, renewable energy potential is sufficient to meet humanity's needs.
SolarQuest® MicroSolar Distance Learning Initiative.
The digital divide is also an energy divide. SolarQuest® has developed and installed MicroSolar systems which power village computer centers connected to the internet by satellite. In October of 2000, we installed a solar-powered internet system in the remote village of Porvenir, Bolivia.
