The Future of Solar Power
Solar power continues to be a relatively small portion of the energy supply of the United States with about 3.4% of the country’s power coming from the sun. But before the naysayers dismiss the industry as insignificant, let’s point out the fact that solar was under 1% just a few short years ago. In addition, some state governments have been showing the potential for wider adoption of solar, with California leading the pack. The state draws an impressive 27% of its power from the sun.
The direction and speed of change are undeniable. In fact, solar power accounted for half of all new utility power generation in 2022. I refuse to say “the future of solar is bright” because that’s hokey, but well… it’s kind of true.
