The solar balloons are an interesting concept. I hope that we get to see them in action soon. At the same time, I am not so quick to discount the value of solar panels on rooftops. Not sure I agree that solar panels on industrial buildings are difficult to maintain - it would really depend on the building and setup. We need a variety of clean energy modalities to meet our energy needs. Every step we take in this direction helps.
I look forward to following the progress of the Cool Earth Solar group.
Bring it on!!! I have 2 acres that I could cover with balloons if it would work. They may not be beautiful but we will always have to sacrifice in some way for energy. I will keep my eyes and ears open on this.
Very good idea! Not sure exactly how this works but from what they are saying it solves the biggest problem of solar energy which is that the technology and equipment is too complicated. Repair is beyond the average Joe and the equipment is very expensive though it is coming down. One thing though, I'm assuming this technology still relies on the use of batteries, am I correct?
Even if it does it deffinately looks like this is an advancement in solar tech. Hurray!
