Solar Hydropanels Harvest Drinking Water and Energy At The Same Time

Clean energy and clean water are two of the biggest challenges facing humanity in the future and now Zero Mass Water, a clean energy start up in Arizona, thinks they may have solved both problems at the same time. They call their new solar hydropanels “SOURCE” and they can be installed on a roof in as little as few hours, harvesting up to 5-10 liters of water per day. Unfortunately, the new tech doesn’t come cheap. Currently, one panel will cost you around $2,000 plus another $500 to install. Over the 10 year life cycle of the panel, that brings the cost of water to somewhere between 12-30 center per liter. Still, it’s a great step forward towards a cleaner and wetter future.
