Video: Affordable Solar Power Via Bright Source Energy?

(Hat Tip: Israel 21st Century)

With rising gas prices around the world affecting everything from food costs to transportation, many countries (ranging from the US to South Korea) are looking towards solar energy to help offset their dependence upon foreign oil.

One company in called Luz II (a subsidary of BrightSource Energy) is developing a unique way of harnessing the power of the Sun in the Negav desert of Israel.

If successful, Luz II could enable large scale cities powered by solar fields instead of oil and gas (which often pump pollution into our skies).

Hopefully BrightSolar Energy subsidary will be able to make a break through, as their success (along with others) could enable all of us to enjoy a greener tomorrow.

  1. Excellent article and great idea to generate energy that will save the global warming impact and eventually help the eliminate the dependency on oil to bring down gas prices.
    President Bush declared new policy for the US that will regenerate other renewable resource technology. As for solar power, he indicates "Between 2000 and 2007, the United States' solar energy capacity doubled – and last year, U.S. solar installations grew by more than 32 percent."

    Hopefully the world governments will work harder to alternative energy and renewable sources>

  2. It's a great project, but there are dozens of similar projects around the world, which offer affordable alternative energy in the long run. The problem is lack of funding and lack of government support in the short run.
