North Korea Turns To Solar Power To Keep Citizens In the Light

By

Not often do we get a glimpse at what’s happening inside of North Korea, but apparently they’re embracing the advancement of solar-powered technology. Raw footage from the Unification Media Group reveals what life is like in one of the country’s biggest cities, Chongjin. One unique aspect is residents turning to solar energy.

In the short clip, solar panels have been installed on tall poles right outside of multiple resident homes. The video suggests they’re imported from China, a country that’s truly embracing renewable energy. China currently hosts the world’s biggest floating solar farm (soon to be trumped by Singapore) and they’ve cancelled over 100 coal-fired power plants.
