SolarCoin (SLR) is an alternative digital currency with a built-in mechanism to incentivize the generation of global solar electricity. By simply mining and/or exchanging SolarCoin just as you would any other digital currency, you are contributing to the development of clean renewable solar energy! Solar energy, unlike fossil fuels, does not place excess heat or carbon into the atmosphere. The creation of new renewable energy resources by SolarCoin results in a nearly carbon neutral mining footprint.

SolarCoin is a Scrypt based alternative digital currency decendant of LiteCoin. It uses the traditional hashcash proof of work method to reward a community of miners who support the SolarCoin network. But SolarCoin’s true innovation comes from its secondary proof of work reward: the Solar Proof of Work. Green solar energy producers are entitled to receive one SLR for every MWh electricity they generate. In order to claim a Solar Proof of Work reward, solar plant owners must submit 3rd party verified energy generation certificates such as a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) or equivalent country specific documentation. All Solar Proof Of Work rewards will be stored as transactions in the blockchain.
