Solar lighting for outdoor use
WIND & SOLAR POWER
Some of the main benefits of solar and wind energy are that they both create jobs, decrease pollution, and provide power to homes. Wind energy is technically a form of solar energy, as both work with help from the sun. The warm air is what causes the air to move and create wind. One wind turbine can produce the same energy as 48,704 solar panels. Wind energy was on the horizon as a possibility in Georgia in 2014, but a recent ban on land-leasing for renewable energy has stopped this progress through the year 2030. Decisions like these may put the US behind. Even England plans to power all homes by wind energy as soon as 2030. For these reasons, Sora Valley homes will be solar powered.
