Another Opportunity in China – Solar Water Heaters

solarwater.jpgWorldchanging points to a great article outlining the massive demand for solar water heaters in China. It’s a perfect example of the entrepreneurial opportuities that await in China – a country growing so rapidly it’s blinding, but were environmental consiousness is finally starting to sink in at a level where leapfrog technology, like solar heaters, can finally gain ground.
Now, fron an ecological perspective, if China is happy with solar water heaters things will be great, but if they start cashing them in for gas models, like switching from bikes to cars, then we might see a problem. But given the quality of good solar water heaters, that scenerio should be unlikely.
