We all know how important it is to push renewables – and to use the sun as one source of free energy. But have you even been ask by a child how all this works? How sunlight is used to gain clean energy? Well, our colleagues from SMA UK might have produced something that’ll help you explain the benefits of solar energy – in a cute little book that uses terms even your children will understand.
Solar panels that you can drive, park, and walk on. They melt snow and… cut greenhouse gases by 75-percent?!!!

Councils are committing to sustainable practices and renewable energy amidst the current Government’s intention to dismantle the Renewable Energy Target. They have implemented innovative renewable energy projects to reduce electricity bills and pass the financial, and environmental rewards back to the taxpayers in their communities.

This presents a real risk to the industry and warrants a concerted effort to defend the policy at the heart of the clean energy sector.
