Watts with a Purpose
When we talk about electricity, the first thing that comes to our minds is: light, food, television, internet, etc. Have you ever thought about the background of the electricity you use at home, at work or in your daily life?
Every day, month and year thousands of tons of CO2 are burned and sent into the atmosphere and all this in order to be able to count on electrical energy, as a consequence we have two words: Climate Crisis. In the same sense, the World Bank estimates that about 1 billion people still live without electricity, and hundreds of millions more live with an insufficient or unreliable power supply. On top of this, there are 3 billion people who burn wood or other biomass for their basic needs, causing indoor and outdoor air pollution that has widespread health impacts.
All of this is evidence that mankind urgently needs to get our planet back on track, to provide our next generations with a healthy, clean planet Earth. But there is hope because we have entered a new era, the era of Renewable Energy.
Renewable energy, or in its beginnings called alternative energy, emerged as just that, an alternative way to have energy without the need to burn conventional fossil fuels. With renewable energy we generate electricity by means of clean energy sources such as the sun, wind, water, etc.
Can you imagine living in a place where you can't store food in the fridge due to lack of electricity? Can you imagine being a patient in surgery in a hospital where you are dependent on a diesel generator? Can you imagine coming home at night in complete darkness? Can you imagine your children being unable to learn through a projector or computer due to lack of electricity?
At Solartia we have been imagining this for years, we are a team passionate about renewable energies, we firmly believe that solar photovoltaic energy can and should be used to solve the problems of the most needy, which goes hand in hand with innovation: hybrid microgrids, storage, more efficient solar modules, among other innovations, open the door to a world of possibilities to save our planet, our population and our economy.
Welcome to Solartia! Let's make more Watts with Purpose together to improve our quality of life.
