Ample energy from the Sun!

It only takes the sun 75-minutes to send the world the same amount of energy it consumes in one year.

Moving into the 21st Century

Solar power is beginning to play a larger role in moving nations away from their traditional use of fossil fuels like coal and natural gas, especially now that there is a much bigger focus on eliminating greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.

Natural gas production contributes to global warming in two ways:

  1. Methane leaks from gas production and delivery
  2. Carbon dioxide from the burning of natural gas

People have shown doubt about the use of solar in areas with less than sunny conditions, but countries like Germany have demonstrated that solar works even without a continuous string of sunny days.

According to information presented in the video above, someone living in Pennsylvania in 2016 could use tax credits to reduce the initial cost of a solar panel installation by about 30-percent, leaving a 'payback' period of approximately 12-years for a typical solar panel installation costing about $21,000.

Another bright spot besides all the environmental gains:
Imagine selling electricity back to the power company!
