Do you ever wonder just how much energy the sun produces? Well, every hour enough solar energy hits the Earth to replace all the traditional energy sources we rely on right now. This means all-natural gas, coal, oil, wind, and biomass energy consumption potentially substituted with solar in just one hour. Crazy, right?
Put another way: we could achieve this result if humans could harness just 0.01% of all solar energy hitting the Earth's surface each year. Every ounce of oil, every lump of coal, and every cubic foot of natural gas could be left in the ground. That's the scale of the opportunity.
To put it into a different perspective, if we covered the Mojave Desert with solar arrays, it would generate more than twice as much electricity as the U.S. uses annually.
Harnessing this energy via residential installs hinges on widespread adoption, though, but it doesn't mean that you and your family can't be ahead of the curve and realize the monthly saving via solar — all while helping steer the planet toward a cleaner, brighter future.
