Something New Under the Sun - What a Chinese high school student does for the environment
Behold! Unknown objects on the balcony of the girl’s dorm! Are these some sort of Bauhaus artworks? Or some aliens queuing up for the sunshine? Not exactly. These are solar cells yearning for the warm sunlight, and they have probably become a part of our life.
Since lamps are required in our dormitory to ensure that enough light is supplied when we are doing our homework, we consider it a good idea to choose solar-cell-powered ones. Why use the electricity produced by coal combustion if clean energy resources are available just around us?
Every morning, we put these sweet little cells onto the balcony. As the colorful array of solar cells is surrounded by the mild sunshine, we feel as if it is ourselves who have absorbed the energy.
