See poll -- Ed.

Madrid, Spain - A new kind of silent hero has joined the fight against climate change.

Santa Coloma de Gramenet, a gritty, working-class town outside Barcelona, has placed a sea of solar panels atop mausoleums at its cemetery, transforming a place of perpetual rest into one buzzing with renewable energy.

Flat, open and sun-drenched land is so scarce in Santa Coloma that the graveyard was just about the only viable spot to move ahead with its solar energy program.....[Read More]

Re: Solar panels on graves power Spanish town

My 2 cents: cemeteries in general are inappropriate. Why take up space forever, when we are only here for such a short time? Seems pretty arrogant and self-absorbed to me...

Stick me in a solar-powered oven and cremate me when I'm gone...

Well, historically, space wasn't really an issue back in the day, I mean, there was a whole Earth!! But yeah, nowadays with Billions of people running around...

Re: Solar panels on graves power Spanish town

we're bound to run out of room soon, put windmills on each grave, along with the solar panels. That would be utilizing the space people complain about.
