Sun worshipers are ancient lore, and actually we still are today. We need to harness its power to meet the demand for inexpensive energy. Costs are skyrocketing for traditional utilities and people are finding solar to be the modern way to cope. Government credits make it viable for every budget. The long-term savings means that the panels pay for themselves. It is a win-win proposition for everyone on the planet who wants to practice sustainability as a good citizen of the earth.

There are so many different ways that installing certain types of solar can help people in desert areas — from solar water pumps to solar hot water heaters including tankless models from and solar irrigation systems. A lot of research has gone into helping such regions maximize their resources. The dry, hot climate demands a state-of-the-art solution that can only come from technological advances. While solar has been around a long time, it is growing with the times to meet the demand of a new capacity. Arid areas are an object lesson for the marvels of sun science. If you want a surefire lucrative job, get into the solar installation business.

As for me, I write this blog to spread the word. It grows naturally from my student focus on Environmental Science.  I am Alec, an undergrad student, who wants to talk about desert research for all nations. I’ll talk about everything from desert species native to Africa to how the continent’s abundant desert sunshine has the potential to shift political conflicts from the Middle East to Northern Africa. There is a lot to explore and it even extends to Latin America. As an environmental scientist I know that everything environmental eventually connects to everything else. I’ll try to avoid scientific jargon to make the reading easier for everyone. I hope to make this journey both fun and exciting along the way.

Thus, clean energy markets are emerging around the world, especially in the hot spots mentioned. After all, 35% of the earth’s surface is desert, and within this category area various types: hot, mild, and cold. This makes the solar expert’s job more complicated. Climate change is exacerbating the work, necessitating ongoing research and innovation.  It all depends on the degree of radiation. You can see that this is the industry of tomorrow. Burning fossil fuels is just not a permanent option. However, as you will see in coming blogs, there are issues with solar such as maintenance, sand storms, excessive water usage, and power transportation. It is a pretty interesting field.
