Bill Gates funds project where solar panels turn sunlight, air to drinking water
Bill Gates is one of the world’s most renowned billionaires for a reason. Not only has he made his mark in the technology scene but he is using the wealth he has generated from the industry to support humanitarian projects in the world like this solar panel project that makes drinking water from sunlight and air.
The project is backed by Bill Gates and another philanthropist Jeff Bezos. With this technology, moisture is gathered from the air and is heated by the solar panels and condensed into pure water. This is already being used in a Lebanese orphanage, school in Kenya and private homes in the US.
The project is quite revolutionary especially for areas with no access to potable water or even in countries and cities suffering from low water levels like Cape Town where it is expected that the water supply will have to be rationed soon. Imagine what good this will do. (ANGEL ONG)
