Partial Funding for building Reservoir Covers to reduce evaporation, algal growth, and global warming

Reflective Earth will arrange partial funding for reservoir owners, operators, or contractors who build covers on reservoirs to reduce evaporation and algal growth.

If the cover is white or shiny reflective, it will help reduce global warming by reflecting solar energy to space.  Here is a description of a possible design for a huge floating cover. Where there is nearby demand for electricity, photovoltaic panels may be the most cost effective cover to also reduce evaporation.  However, in more remote places, a merely reflective cover will be more cost effective.

Places with a high potential per square meter to reflect sunlight to space and evaporation from reservoirs is high include Egypt, the rest of north Africa, Saudia, Jordan, Israel, Australia, Namibia, northern Chile, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and northern Mexico.

The builder of the cover could be a government or an established company working with a government or a start-up company, either for-profit or non-profit.  If it’s a start-up company that plans to continue building best-design covers on reservoirs indefinitely as its primary business, start-up funding may be available.
