Produce your own power and fresh water with solar energy Solar-Powered Desalination
Sources of drinking water are shrinking, while populations are growing. Solar thermal desalination is an effective, economical and proven method of providing both power and fresh water. It is most effective when direct radiation is available and when the cost of electrical power is more than 7 cents kWh. It is particularly suitable for resort, recreation sites and remote locations that require autonomous power and desalination.
