The Solar Timeline...

Reduce Footprints:

Guest Post - The Solar Timeline

Solar Energy has been touted as the clean sustainable answer to many of our energy problems. As recently as February this year Ofgem announced that between 2015 - 2018 we will be dangerously close to a crisis that will push up energy prices further, a worrying proposition.

This may not come as a surprise to you, but you may be surprised to know that Solar energy has long been heralded the answer to our energy issues, as far back as 1905 when Einsteins paper, that later won the noble prize engaged the Photoelectric effect we celebrated using the Sun to power our world! So it struck us that sometimes that new technology that you hear about, maybe took longer than you thought. This timeline takes you through some of the landmark solar events on our journey to harness the power of the sun. We hope you enjoy it!

That's interesting, the sooner we turn to clean energy the better, the way we use electricity now is going to be limited and blackouts are predicted in the next ten years.x
