Solar Energy Could Find New Niche in Remote Locations, By Sam Barouki

leave a comment »

Solar power continues to grow in both popular and economic acceptance. Industry watchers believe this alternative energy source also will gain a foothold in geographically distant locations in the coming years.

According to a recent opinion piece featured at, military installations represent a good future market for solar power. This is because U.S. bases in combat zones often are located in remote regions, which presents a number of logistical and transportation challenges. As solar power becomes increasingly mobile and easier to install, military bases may be able to reduce their reliance on fossil fuel, saving money and lives as a result. Mobile solar power systems already have seen success in tests in Afghanistan.

Remote villages throughout the world represent another huge market for solar energy in the coming decades. Despite the tremendous infrastructure advances made in China, India, and other developing nations, more than 2.3 billion people around the world still have limited or no access to electricity. Recently, mobile solar power systems were used in remote areas of Nigeria. This enabled residents to enjoy the benefits of electricity and clean water for the first time.
