This is a great article on the Virgin site >> It is time to take notice and to have look at this and maybe the other post we did yesterday: This Year America Eclipsed Other Years in Solar Power
Solar is now a real energy option. By “real,” I mean that with continued technological improvements and cost reductions, it could provide 20 percent of the United States’ energy needs by 2050. So far, though, in most jurisdictions, solar has a small market share. Fortunately, some nations and states have pushed the needle pretty far: Germany, not the sunniest country in the world, now gets more than 7 percent of its electricity from solar. California is on its way to installing 2 GW of cumulative solar capacity. And China has proposed a target of 35 GW of cumulative solar capacity installed by 2015.
Solar still costs more than most of the old power plants running today. We would have a fair few economic challenges if we tried to instantly replace our coal, gas, and nuclear power plants with PV. Luckily, that’s not the way the world works. Prices for solar panels will continue to fall as more of it gets built, and will make way for at least another 50 percent reduction in the cost of installed systems. That makes solar competitive in about half the world’s markets. And we will replace old power step-by-step, starting with the dirtiest, oldest plants. Those old plants, by the way, only seem cheap. We pay the price in lung disease, increased mortality, stunted crops and climate change – if coal companies had those costs on their balance sheets, no sane person would invest in … more here >>
