Five famous buildings with solar

The Vatican, solar poweredWhat the common point between famous buildings around the world such as the White House in the United States, the Vatican, the Taj Mahal in India, the Burj Khalifa in the United Arab Emirates and the Eiffel Tower in France ?

You give up ? They are all at least partly powered by solar. This was pointed out by Solar Mosaic. So if you thought that solar photovoltaic or thermal panels would ruin old buildings and landmarks, think again.

Solar will answer an increasing share of our needs and thus will become ubiquitous this century as previous studies have shown. Solar panels thus do belong everywhere, from India’s slums to the palaces of the world.
