Senegal Agrees to a 25 Year Solar Project With ENGIE

In today’s modern world, how we manage our energy is of the utmost importance. The idea of having more and possibly efficient reliance on solar power is probably one of the greatest hopes humanity can have in its desire to preserve its wellbeing in a safe and responsible manner. Although our reliance on fossil fuels keeps us where we currently are, anyone can be wise enough to determine that such luck won’t last, especially if it continues to be pushed with material that by its own nature is inherently toxic to the surroundings societies thrive on. When news comes out saying that Senegal agrees 25 year solar project with ENGIE, that can very much be the hope humanity needs to be given, solely because a project like this and its use of batteries for solar panels paves the innovative path towards solar energy.

If you are unfamiliar with ENGIE, then not to worry. ENGIE is a multinational electric utility company that operates in the areas of: electricity generation and distribution, natural gas, nuclear energy as well as more renewable forms of energy. In this case, the idea of solar energy and how much it could benefit humankind would be the perfect opportunity, now that Senegal has agreed to a solar project with ENGIE that will last for a good period of over twenty-five years. Time is everything when it comes to scientific innovation, and as much one can hope it literally doesn’t take twenty-five years, it certainly gives anyone who feels that humanity could benefit from the use of solar power far more confidence and comfort in that somebody cares enough to demonstrate that very level of dedication.

According to Renewable Energy World, the main reason as to why the Senegalese government has agreed to the twenty-five-year project with ENGIE is because Senegal has no access to electricity. The Scaling Solar project, which is the twenty-five-year agreement, will allow for the Senegal governments to organize the much needed privately funded projects to asses and hopefully improve this situation. This can hopefully deliver the best results possible given not only the dis-advantages the people of Senegal have to endure without a means to basic power, but also the whole world who will eventually have to acknowledge how dangerous it is to rely on sources of power such as:

  • Petroleum
  • Natural gas
  • Coal

These sources of power are not only not clean, but they go above the use of humankind’s dependence on solar power, which should be higher given that it doesn’t warrant for any risk to the environment in which the other mentioned substances already do and will continue to do so at more fundamentally detrimental levels of harm and pollution. Now, there are no guarantees with any innovative venture tackled when the results can be immensely promising. However, when looking at the benefit of solar power, anyone can immediately determine that a source of energy that is safe, clean, and renewable is far more efficient than the kind of power that will inevitably be humanity’s down fall.

Even though the twenty-five-year project Senegal has given to ENGIE to manage is just a first major step, maybe, just maybe it is the step needed to usher in an inspiration for other foreign and domestic governments to usher in privately funded projects of a similar nature that can substantially decrease the reliance on fossil fuels and increase a reliance on solar energy.
