Compared to other energy platforms, hydropower is very efficient. Energy conversion rates are in the 80 to 90 percent range. The plants also have a long life as you can see with any dam, and maintenance costs are relatively low. Cost of energy production, thus, is lower or on par with other energy platforms including oil.
Mention a solar power farm and many people picture a field of solar panels. This is incorrect in most cases. Instead, one gets a field of mirrors. The mirrors are controlled by a computer system. They are tilted at different angles to do just one thing. They redirect light to the top section of a tower placed in the middle of the mirrors. This section is filled with a large amount of a salt mixture.
We can cut our power supplier use way down by being super conscious about conserving. Where ever possible we can use systems that do not require a lot of electricity or fuel. Consider walking or riding a bike instead of exclusively driving everywhere. Use a clothes line to dry clothes instead of only using a dryer. Recycle everything possible. If you have the space and ability, grow a garden and do some food preparation and storage; like drying fruit and vegetables. Grow extra food to trade for things you need. Create community around you and develop a system for sharing and trading.

But you don’t have to be in the desert to benefit from solar rays, in fact, you might get greater solar efficiency in other areas. This is not about heat. This is about efficiency and sustainability. This about all of us finding our way of existing with the planet while we go on about our lives.
