Solar Power Estate + What’s On and Coming up in The Bahamas

Nothing tells us times have changed more than the words we use to describe everyday things. Remember when we wanted our homes to be comfy and our children to be smart? Now we want our homes to be smart and our children to be comfortable, whatever road they choose. There’s one road we love on Paradise Island because it leads to an estate that fascinates us. Solar Power Estate takes electrification to a whole new level, supplying its own power and becoming one of fewer than 200 in the entire Bahamas to be able to sell back to Bahamas Power and Light (BPL). 4-bed, 4 ½ bath, pool, pond, sun deck, 5600+ sq feet plus dolphin fountain. Check out the link.

That reminds us of another change in lingo with substance. Remember when we just wanted to go fast and far? Now we want to go green and more and more of us are.

The challenge with going solar, though, is it takes up a lot of space on land so smart businesses and condos are looking up. They’re renting roof space from a neighbouring building to place their panels, tying into their buildings and enjoying the consistent quality of power. Meantime, countries around the world from Africa to Australia, China to the Netherlands are using floating solar platforms in lakes and seas. Now that would be an interesting lease arrangement for a whole new division of real estate. Hmmm…

What’s On and Coming Up…
