Apple has filed a patent to bring iPhones and iPods off the grid and into the rays of the sun. Just my luck - a day after buying my iPhone the news breaks. Can’t an energy writer catch a break!?! Great news for the grid though. If we continue to plug-in the way we are, and the transportation sector is electrified, then we are in for some serious grid strain. If electronics manufacturers find a way to power products in a renewable manner, then we will decrease demand on the grid, become more efficient in energy use, and hopefully one day eliminate the need for excessive power cords.
