The city of tomorrow starts today. 

These posts are meant as a bridge.

They are born from research, interviews with industry leaders, and my insatiable appetite for more knowledge on solar, energy efficiency, EVs, and smart urban technologies.

In this blog I try to cut through the information clutter, the industry jargon, the unattainable and the mundane to present my readers with the ideas of NOW.

Solar In The City started out as strictly a solar blog but I felt that there are more aspects to a sustainable city life, so I will be covering topics ranging from urban farming to upcycled furniture and transportation alternatives. If there’s a topic you’d like me to cover, get in touch: kate(at)

  • Are you exploring ways to use solar energy for your home or business?
  • Intrigued by all the buzz about solar PV (photovoltaic) panels?
  • Or simply looking for ways to save on energy bills?

Read on to learn more about these topics, as well as Hybrids and EVs (electric vehicles),solar gadgets, solar toys and apps, from our research, articles, and videos.
