How I’m turning sunlight into bitcoin with the Sun Exchange
I purchase solar cells as part of a crowdsale through The Sun Exchange. Once the crowdsale is complete, the solar project’s installation begins. The Sun Exchange platform leases my solar cells to schools, businesses, and other organizations. I track my monetized sunshine through the online dashboard. And I’m paid monthly in bitcoin for the electricity they produce… essentially turning sunlight into bitcoin!
Anyone can own solar cells, lease them to businesses and organizations in emerging markets, and get paid in bitcoin through The Sun Exchange platform. These crowdfunded projects close a funding gap by providing to usually would not normally be able to secure funds for access to sustainable renewable energy.
How it works
- Sign up for The Sun Exchange
- Fund your wallet via credit/debit card, bank, transfer, or bitcoin, and buy solar cells from an open crowdsale
- Sit back and collect on your monetized sunlight for the next 20 years
I initially purchased solar cells for Spar Plaza in Mokopane, South Africa, one of the sunniest agricultural regions perfect for clean, sustainable energy. Other Sun Exchange projects I have solar cells with include Nhimebe Fresh in Marondera, Zimbabwe, CPOA Berghof Retirement Village in Cape Town, South Africa, and Karoo Fresh in Karoo, South Africa.
Through the Sun Exchange dashboard, I can monitor my solar cell earnings, the energy produced (kWh), carbon offset (kg CO2), and updates on new solar projects. The monthly earnings I accumulate in my Sun Exchange wallet can be used to buy even more solar cells.
Anyone in the world can participate and turn sunlight into bitcoin with The Sun Exchange. I’m proud to be a part of these solar projects that help these businesses cut their energy costs and offset their carbon emissions. It’s a win-win for everyone and the planet.
