Gotta start somewhere.
Are you sure? In any case, it amounts to a lot of power.
At Present in the U.S. , Solar Power accounts for about 1 PERCENT of our Energy Production . By mid Century we are Lucky to see that go to about 3 Percent .
This means that solar power in the U.S. now supplies enough electricity to meet the yearly demand of Hawaii, Rhode Island, Alaska and Vermont combined. Three states can now boast that solar electricity provides more than 5 percent of total consumption within the state: California, Arizona and Hawaii. And total U.S. solar electricity generation now exceeds the consumption of 16 individual states and the District of Columbia.
