let there be solar power
The Vatican will enjoy energy from the God of Sun in about two weeks' time. 2,700 solar panels will be installed on top of the roof of the Paul VI auditorium. Those photovoltaic cells will generate enough electricity for lighting and airconditioning the 6,000 seat hall.
Since he was elected in 2005, Benedict XVI has criticised "the unbalanced use of energy" in the world.
200 tonnes of carbon dioxide or 70 tonnes of oil can be saved with those solar panels.
We all know that The Vatican is very rich and solar panels aren't cheap. Those panels would have cost The Vatican $1.5 million, thanks to a German company Solar World, The Vatican received them for free. Remember that the Pope was born in Germany and was a member of Hitler Youth.
Now, in an Antony style, Apple gets a mention.
Perhaps it is a win-win situation for the Vatican and the environment. Without a doubt, this is a lose-lose situation for the power company.
