The Solar Energy Scale

I recently acquired a new toy; it's a tiny box with a loop and chain that hooks on to a key ring. The box has a little solar panel on it. If I place it in direct sunlight for a few hours it will charge my cell phone. This neat gadget cost $20. With this device I gained new perspective on Energiya Global's mission.

Here is how it works: I spent $20 on a solar powered cell phone charger, reducing my use of other energy sources by an infinitesimal amount. But it doesn't have to stop there. I personally know around 100 people who might be willing to use a solar powered phone charger. With the convenience and wide reach of social media platforms I could probably stretch that number to several hundred, and it could grow exponentially from there. And soon, not only would many, many cell phone users worldwide be charging with solar-generated electricity, but manufacturers of solar-powered chargers would be springing up daily, improving the technology and driving the price down to keep up with demand.

The small shift in behavior would lead to other changes. If I can use the sun to charge my phone, what else can I power with the sun? If consumers demanded grid-connected solar power for their other electric devices we wouldn't be able to build commercial solar fields fast enough.

The solar power revolution would grow through a global awakening in clean, renewable energy consciousness.

Pretty soon, we've saved the planet. And all for $20.
