America’s first solar water park…

Summer is over, but that hasn’t stopped San Antonio-based Sunrise Solar Corp from getting involved with the first green water park in the history of the United States.

The project will be in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and will use solar power to provide energy for the pools and water slides. Here’s another great example of a project that will not only lower the carbon footprint of one particular entertainment venue, but will also provide a very high profile use of solar power. Building an association between having fun and solar power is just the kind of marketing that alternative energy needs to move further into the mainstream.

It’s high time that we start using the same marketing techniques to save the world from our irresponsible consumer habits that we used to create them. Imagine a day when teenagers are begging their parents to get solar panels instead of swimming pools?
