Solar power has been touted around for some time as the savior of our global energy problems, although there remains a great deal of skepticism. Perhaps what the critics fail to realize or acknowledge is that solar technology involved is improving at such a rate that anything, literally anything, could soon be possible. Whilst it is true that solar power is unlikely to provide enough power for our cities to abandon their existing grids, it is the general consumers in general consumer markets who are benefiting the most from this great innovation. Five years ago the idea of having a solar-powered watch would have been dismissed by many as ludicrous, but solar-powered watches are here, and they are good. Very good.
