Solar won't work for me. It's too cloudy where I live.
Germany has five times as much solar power as the U.S. - despite having the same amount of sunshine as Alaska, the lowest in the U.S. (Washington Post)
Isn't solar hard to maintain?
Solar energy generally requires almost no maintenance during its lifetime, which is typically 30 years or more. Besides an annual cleaning, the solar panels pretty much take care of themselves.
What about Solyndra? The famous US Solar company that President Obama funded? Are they doing so well?
Quite the opposite! Solyndra showed us the good news about solar. That the costs of solar are coming down dramatically, making it harder for some companies to compete, but making solar more accessible to consumers.
The cost of solar energy in the U.S. and Canada has come down 60% since 2011 (Clean Technical
Solar energy isn't for me. I'm not an environmentalist or into techy things.
As long as you like saving money, solar energy is for you!
Homeowners will save an average of over $40,000 over the life of the solar energy system (Clean Power Research)
A solar energy system is being installed every 4 minutes in the U.S. By 2016, it's projected to drop to every 83 seconds. (Greentech Media )
An Abundant Resource
The energy in twenty days of sunshine falling on Earth is the same as that of all the coal, oil, and natural gas known to humans. (Roof top Revolution)
A Booming Industry
California installed more megawatts of solar energy in 2013 than it did in the last 30 years combined (CALSEIAJ
Solar for Everyone
In CA, solar installations are overwhelmingly taking place in middle-class neighborhoods, where median incomes range from $40,000 to $90,000 (Center for American Progress)
