When I think about solar energy and the diversified usage of solar panels the first thing that comes to my mind is when my family and I lived in Harare, Zimbabwe in the southern region of Africa for fourteen months.
We relocated to Zimbabwe in the Fall of 2011 during a very traumatic time of transition, and uncertainty dealing with life-altering complications from my husband’s continuous battle with diabetes. I always pictured myself living in Africa at some point in my life, but just not under such dire circumstances for my family. However, during my stay I discovered my inner strength, spiritual growth, and surprisingly the “priceless,” use of solar energy. I believe that by living in Africa for that extent of time it taught a great deal of life lessons, and how to respect the environment and become a more resourceful person.
By living in Zimbabwe the experience of shortages of water, electricity, and first world commodities are not the norm. I experiences a lot of days, nights, and numerous weekends without electrical power. That is when the light bulb flashed in my mind that solar power is key to live a prosperous life. I learned that respecting “Mother Nature,” is very important to living a green way of life.
So, upon our timely arrival back to the United States in late 2012. We actually arrived the month of my birthday at the end of July. I had learned the being kind to the environment, and saving money on energy is beneficial in this day and age, regardless of where I live anywhere in the world. I believe that investing in solar panels for my home is enormously responsible for my family.
