+ What is SINTESUN?
SINTESUN is a NGO composed of an interdisciplinary team of young artists, engineers, producers, designers that feel the need to communicate the importance of renewable energy in our planet. We believe in the power of music to spread this important concept. We are going to organize "solar sessions" where music bands live the experience of playing in a natural environment thanks to solar panels and people, in turn, can learn about clean energy.
+ How do I find solar sessions?
The events will be announced by the 3-way communications: web, Facebook and Twitter.
+ I know music bands and/or places that could be part of the solar sessions
Anyone can recommend a music band on the Web section "bands and places."
+ How do solar panels work?
Solar modules use light energy (photons) from the sun to generate electricity through the photovoltaic effect. The majority of modules use wafer-based crystalline silicon cells to convert the energy, store it into batteries and use it when deemed necessary.
+ Advantages of Solar Power?
- Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source.
- Solar energy will last forever whereas it is estimated that the world’s oil reserves will last for 30 to 40 years.
- Solar energy causes no pollution.
- Solar cells make absolutely no noise at all. On the other hand, the giant machines utilized for pumping oil are extremely noisy and therefore very impractical.
- Very little maintenance is needed to keep solar cells running. There are no moving parts in a solar cell which makes it impossible to really damage them.
- Solar energy is getting more cost effective.The technology for solar energy is evolving at an increasing rate. At present photovoltaic technology is still relatively expensive but the technology is improving and production is increasing. The result of this is to drive costs down. Payback times for the equipment are getting shorter and in some areas where the cost of electricity is high payback may be as short as five years.
- It promotes the education and respect for the environment.
+ How can I help?
- We are in a first stage where we need to raise funds to get the necessary equipment. As we are an NGO, we are trying to get sponsors to help us, but often it is not enough. You can help us by sharing our project on networks or making donations to the following bitcoin address:
