The mission of this category is to seek out locations where solar power is harvested for use as an alternative energy source and submit them here.
Expanded Description:

Solar power is the use of energy from the sun, often as an alternative to other forms of energy. Solar power is considered a clean and renewable energy source as it does not deplete a limited fuel supply, nor emits any byproducts. Some applications of solar power are: heat, electricity, transportation, lighting, water desalination, and even photosynthesis in plants. See Wikipedia for more information.

Any location that solar power is converted to heat, electrical, or other use as an alternative energy form can be submitted here. Some examples are: homes, businesses, permanent signs, power stations/farms, and parking lots roofs (both thermal and electrical).

Greenhouses, yard ornaments, and other non-permanent locations are discouraged and should not be submitted here. Please contact the category officers if there is a question concerning a particular location.

To to cut down on the mundane, we are asking only one type of solar power location per waymarker per 0.01 mile radius (0.2km) If the is a row of parking meters, please only waymark one.

Instructions for Posting a Solar Power Waymark:
A minimum of one photo of the solar powered structure showing the solar collector is required. Additional photos showing details, or area views are highly suggested.

Information about what kind of energy is used (thermal, electrical), size of the collector system, type of system, should be reported. Include a link to a website about the waymark, if possible.

NAMING: Please name your waymark: Name - City, State.
