FORT COLLINS, COLORADO –
Just as everybody is trying to ride on the buzzword 'sustainable development' and get lost in all the noise created, there is one very concrete idea worth looking into for countries with plenty of sunlight like the Philippines the so-called community solar garden, which seeks to provide electricity to homes in a particular community via the installation of solar panels in their area.
Solar energy took center stage at the 2011 Colorado Renewable Energy Conference, which brought discussions down to the grassroots level on how to take advantage of this readily renewable energy.
Greg Ching of Solar Gardens Institute said that new technologies now enable small communities to build their own source of power by establishing a solar garden right in their own community.
