Is solar power fake? Is it like a fairy tale we tell our kids but deep down we know it’s not real? For years we have been hearing about how the solar era is coming and how it will change everything we do. Yet if we look around us we see lots of sun but no solar power.
We were told that our homes would soon be powered by the sun and that our cars would be able to run on clean energy generated through solar power. Yet solar homes remain a mirage and there are still no neon lights pointing to solar power filling stations on Sheikh Zayed Road or Hamdan Street.
Why is it that despite the vast potential for solar in this country we still do not see any signs of solar energy in our daily lives? Is solar real?
