Hello,im new to this forum. Im a firm believer in permaculture and in nourishing the health of mother earth, any who! I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Im in an electric wheelchair and use a ventilator and I want to know what anyone recommends as far as how to achieve solar power in the most effective way:cost wise and space saving since I live in an apartment. But the main goal for my future is to start an intentional community with a food forest and acreage but I would need solar power there, what do you recommend for solar power?

Hi friend i'm silja, few days ago i read an article about solar paint " Sun-Believable", Nano-sized particles of titanium dioxide, which were coated with either cadmium sulfide or cadmium selenide. The particles were then suspended in a water-alcohol mixture to create a paste. When the paste was brushed onto a transparent conducting material and exposed to light, it created electricity.According to Kamat,who made this invention, the new paste’s light-to-energy conversion efficiency is a mere 1 percent, but he hopes his research team will be able to boost that figure closer to 10-15% for commercial use. Kamat believes solar paste technology could truly benefit green living in the future, and appropriately named the paint Sun-Believable
