Solar Collectors are Getting Closer

While we can all build a solar collector, their use for large quantities of electricity generation has been problematic at best.  But, like all good scientists and engineers, these guys keep plugging at it.  The next generation will be converting solar energy to heat and then to electricity.

They are addressing issues of dirt, dust, and etching.  The issues of heat-stress on metals is being worked out too.  Doesn’t it make you wish it were your shop?  The only thing they are doing wrong is outsourcing to other countries.  Enjoy this 11 minute video!

I was preaching prepping in the early 80's. Then, I was called crazy. Recently those same people said they should have listened. It just seems to me that things really haven't changed that much except the likelihood of nuclear attacks, biological warfare, and geophysical calamities have increased instead of decreasing. The economy? It's all over but the shouting. I work with some local friends, I hope you like their sites: http://2pairfarms.com http://southtexasprepper.com **As do all good preppers, I use a pseudonym.
