Turning salt water into fresh drinking water could be the future when it comes to fighting any potential water shortage around the world.
A new desalination plant in Kenya is serving as a strong model for this and it is being powered by solar. The effort is led by a nonprofit known as GivePower and it is generating enough water for 25,000 people per day (nearly 20,000 gallons). The plant opened in 2018.
Locally, people make payments via an app for the water. The charge is a fourth of a cent per liter. GivePower says that this is much less than traditional water brands that charge $1 per liter.
And this is all possible thanks to solar power.
If solar can help in the effort to turn salt water into fresh water to help people in need, imagine what it could do for your home or business. Residents and business owners alike across the Sacramento region are currently using solar power to bring down their electricity costs and helping the environment at the same time.
Businesses could save thousands of dollars every month by going solar and residents could bring their high summer energy bills down significantly. Plus, with PG&E currently conducting power shut offs throughout the Sacramento region to mitigate fire risks, solar batteries can be used to store power for use at night or during a black out.
