Weather Forcast for Antigua Today: Sunny

Hours of Sun Light

This is how Guatemala’s Instituto Nacional de Sismología, Vulcanología, Meteorología e Hidrología, INSIVUMEH for short, measures the hours of sun light for the day.

In Guatemala we are lucky to have many days with lots of sun light through out the year. If the sun-powered technology wasn’t so expensive we take advantage of the enormous amount of sun light with things like solar water heaters and solar panels for electricity and so on.

How many clean, renewable energy programs are there where you live?

  • Probably quite a few! Mostly wind powered solutions, but also biofuel plants and a lot of solar powered project.

    • @Steffe, I am glad that we’re seeing more cleaner energy programs in many places of the world.

    Wind is the next thing here in Ohio, with our industrial base and Lake Erie being a wind factory, the political class is pushing wind hard. Plans are being firmed up to build the windmills from local material and labor.

    • In these globalized times the best option is always to think local first. 😉

    A person that sells solar water heaters told me that in Guatemala there are only 46 days a year (on average) that are too cloudy for the solar heater to work. That convinced me to buy one of these heaters, when I finally have my new house.
