    Solar’s Importance Growing

    The state of residential solar power; Choosing solar in a vacuum now makes sense—but location and bureaucracy still loom IRL.

    Lee Phillips, February 5, 2017 (Ars Technica)

    “…[W]e will need to generate approximately 15TW of usable energy from renewable (carbon-neutral) sources by 2050 in order to stabilize the atmospheric CO2 concentration…[S]olar power has the greatest potential for meeting this requirement…[W]ind, hydropower, and geothermal extraction may work well on a local or regional scale in certain areas…[but] the potential of solar exceeds any other renewable energy source by several orders of magnitude. It’s simply the only contender, besides nuclear power, for a global solution…Given the recent change of federal leadership, it's likely a time of great uncertainty for large US solar initiatives. But individual organizations, businesses, and even citizens can still make decisions for themselves about embracing solar…[Prospects look good for growth because energy from rooftop solar power is now cheaper than energy from the grid…And in fact, “solar farms” are growing in popularity as a way for communities to gain some of the benefits of solar power without requiring each individual to invest in a separate rooftop system…” click here for more
