Solar is good for conserving, if every person uses at least 100 amps worth. I see a future where every home dedicating at least half their roof to
solar, then with the use of massive wind generating plants, and smaller coal plants. You can see how the demand of oil, at least for generating
electricity and heating can be drastically reduced.
It would take 155 of these solar panels to supply 100 amps at 120 volts, final price $52,071. And it would take up 1232 square ft of space. So maybe
you can cover you entire backyard. As far as cars, ethenol, and maybe hydrogen in a far distant future, is the only way to go.
