The Solar Floating Resort

There is more electrical energy created by the sun in one hour than the entire world use in one year and the amount of solar energy reaching the surface of the planet is so vast that in 365 days there is about twice as much energy as will ever be obtained from all of the Earth’s non-renewable resources of coal, oil, natural gas, and mined uranium combined. Convinced that solar energy is the solution to global warming and environment issues, Michele Puzzolante, Italian Industrial Designer, decided to get involved in the green energy new era by inventing a “unique building integrated photovoltaic concept totally self-sufficient non-polluting energy generator,”that is in harmony with its natural surroundings, says Puzzolante the mastermind behind the concept of the Solar Floating Resort (SFR).
