Did anyone know there was a black market for Solar Panels. Obviously there are entreprenuers who have found a lucrative market in helping themselves to Solar Panels from defenseless owners like wineries.

As usual innovative entrepreneurs have turned this problem into an opportunity by building Solar Security Systems.

There is a move to create a Solar Registry to keep track of Solar Panels in use in the country.

Well how about having a tracking chip embedded into the Solar Panel with GPS and an addressable node.

Lets look at the advantages. This chip could function like a SIN Number (no pun intended) as well as allow tracking the location of the Solar Panel for automated positioning and achieve optimum efficiency depending on its location on the globe.

There will always be thieves waiting to prey on the gullible and there will always be the Good Samaritans ready to provide deterrents and in the process profit form the venture legitimately.

Smart Cities here we come.
