In my home, currently we have a fire escape facing the noon sun everyday. Except for in the rain that is. This week we will install solar panels onto our fire escape to generate electricity to power simple things like our television, lamps, and possibly even fridge. We currently use our apartment electricity for most things but upon discovering solar panels, we can rewire it to the panels, and even use a solar powered cellphone, or homephone to make phone calls. The Earth uses the sun to power it, and if the sun can power this wh*** planet why can't it power our little apartment?
