We want to extend a special salute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and the families who have supported them. We are a non violent bunch at BSW, and are generally pacifists when dealing with conflicts. Never the less we admire the bravery and selflessness our military has shown throughout history.
What's the Connection To Solar?
One could argue that most of the wars the US has fought in were about resources. In many cases those resources were about energy: whale oil, coal, oil, natural gas. Traveling across the globe to defend our energy resources, in addition to political interests, seems like something we should be able to change as we transition to more renewable sources of energy. The thing we like the most about solar is that it is local! The Sun will shine where we live for a long long time.
There is enough sun that falls on the Earth, and on the US, on a daily basis to power all of our day to day needs. The challenge we have is to capture it and store it in a way which maintains the quality of life we have grown to enjoy. As we move into an energy future that relies more heavily on renewable energy vs. traditional fossil fuel based sources- let's be mindful of those who made great sacrifices for our country, thank those who are currently sacrificing, and take steps..even the small ones.. to help shift our reasons for conflict away from chasing energy. We've got it all right here!
