Harness the sun to power a wide range of things you use every day.
It’s free, it’s easily accessible, and its production is clean… it’s surprising that solar power is not more widely used. Advances in technology mean that it’s easier to manufacture solar panels, which makes them more affordable to consumers, and today’s solar panels can harness more energy with a smaller surface space.
In the U.S. solar power continues to lead all categories as the renewable energy mode of choice. Last year, it made up 29 percent of all new electricity capacity, second only to natural gas at 46 percent. In 2014, solar power is projected to grow by another 26 percent, according to GTM, a research firm. The Department of Energy expects solar to provide 27 percent of all electricity in America by 2050, a huge increase from its less than one percent total today.
