The children of the sun

The next generation is the first generation that will widely use the renewable power sources and especially the power of the sun. Our children will be forced to use these sources because when their time comes, petrol may exist only in museums. The population on earth is increasing and fuels are getting more expensive every day. Tesla used to say that we are surrounded by energy that we are incapable of using. This starts to change and we must all fight to this direction.
Energy dependence is a very important issue for the future. The decisions made and the action taken on this problem will determine our lives in the near future. Imagine how our lives would be if the energy we could have available was free and unlimited. Someone could say that this is too good to get true but in order to make something true you must first dream of it.
MEZOLIFT dears to dream of a future where people are energy independent and energy is more than enough for all people on this planet. People tend to describe these types of energy as “renewable” power sources but we believe that the term “renewable” just hides the potential of these power sources which is described by the terms “unlimited” and “inexhaustible”. The power of the sun is a good example of an “unlimited” and “inexhaustible” power source. Technology is not focusing on the solar energy because it is “renewable” but more important because it is “unlimited”. The deposits of oil on this planet are not “renewable” but solar power is “inexhaustible”, not just renewable. I hope the reader can understand the difference in the use of words as well as the power or the weakness they hide inside them.
Our philosophy on energy showed to us the way to make people independent on their vertical transportations and enjoy the freedom that power independence can offer. By creating the solar lift we did not created just a lift that consumes little energy, but we created an independent machine that makes people who use it also independent people. The importance of this fact is huge. It is a new era that humanity enters but very few people can see it coming. Someone could ask where the independence is since even with a lift plugged in the net you still have vertical transportations done. The big difference is on WHO CONTROLS THE POWER SWITCH.
Recently in India a huge blackout on the electricity grid left more than 680.000.000 people without power. No newspaper said how many people died because of this blackout and how weak and dependent all people felt in India. I do know how many people were trapped in lifts, the metro, in coal mines, traffic lights were off and people were stuck in their cars, water was lost for millions of people and their lives were in danger because of lack of energy. 


This is what newspapers report for the blackout :
… Another culprit may be northern Indian states drawing more power from the country's grid than they were allotted. India has circuit breakers to cut off power to states that overdraw, but state officials may have told the circuit breaker personnel not to shut off their power, Surendra Rao, former chairman of the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission, told the New York Times. Federal officials will penalize overdrawing states, Shinde told the New York Times. … (http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=why-india-just-suffered)
It is obvious that the lives of millions of people (and not only in India) are attached to circuit breakers and decisions that a few people will take. 

The question now is how our children will survive in a planet where energy is something not necessarily available for everyone and of course in limited quantities. We believe that the era of the sun is rising. Solar energy will lead humanity to energy independence and our children will built their lives on free and unlimited energy given by the sun or the stars.
We made a small step by creating a solar lift. Solar lift has many advantages but we believe that the best thing it can offer to people is hope for a future with energy independent people.
