The Most Solar Town in America

  • Posted by Mitchell Flexo on June 10, 2010 in Energy
  • A small town on the border of the Mojave Desert is the new leader in solar energy. Nipton, California, a town of about 250 people, gets 85% of its electricity from a new 80 kilowatt solar project. This proves that renewable energy technology is already advanced enough to power our homes and lives, albeit maybe just in small towns for now. But the possibilities are endless, and as a gateway community to the extremely beautiful Mojave Desert region, Nipton is tapping into sustainability to make itself economically and environmentally viable for years to come.
