Idea: Donating Electricity/Crowd Sourced Solar Panels

Synopsis: If you follow my blog at all, you know I’m infatuated with the potential of 3D printing, especially on the consumer level.

Free the warez! Amirite?

Anyway, I was reading a pretty interesting article about 3D printed solar panels (check it out here). From what I read, the process is relatively cheap. I have zero details fleshed out yet, but I have to imagine this technology can be used to donate “electricity” to communities that have access to none. After that, donate to people in poor communities. Start with the bottom up until we all utilize solar energy.

I also feel the design should be free to all people so anyone can print solar panels. Having the design and the required materials means anyone with a 3D printer can contribute to the cause. I’m not sure how people would be repaid for their efforts, but I think if someone figured out a process, this could change the world.

Or not. It’s just an idea.

Peace out, party people.
