There’s a saying: When you lose the Internet, it’s like 1979; when you lose power, it’s like 1879. Technology has made steady, reliable power a necessity not only for individuals but for industry and governments as well.
A few months ago there was a report that a Japanese town recovering from last year’s tsunami-inflicted Fukushima nuclear disaster is teaming up with Toshiba Corp. to build several solar electricity plants which, combined would be Japan’s largest solar facility.
