Hollywood Celebrities Who’ve Signed Up for Solar Panels
While many stars have gotten their 15 minutes of fame in the Hollywood entertainment industry, today we are taking a look a very different kind of star that is getting some much-deserved attention in Hollywood––the sun. While it may be 93 million miles away and not nearly as easy on the eyes as some of the men and women who’ve made it on the big screen, life on Earth depends on the warmth and energy provided by this massive star. Solar energy technology, including solar panels and photovoltaic cells, has allowed for the power of the sun to be harnessed for the powering of our daily lives. Realizing the economic and environmental benefits offered by solar energy technology, a number of celebrities have gotten on board the solar train by installing solar panels on their own homes and supporting programs that promote the use of solar power.
