Can Bitcoin bring solar to the developing world?

To scale up solar, there are some problems we need to address. One is geographic: some places get a lot more sun that others (and that sun may not always correspond to peak demand). A second is up-front costs: how can people who are barely getting by (either in the developing or developed world) afford to pay for panels?

Sun Exchange is making it possible, using the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, to de-couple who owns the panels, where they are and who gets the energy.
