Solar is the fastest growing energy source in the world, and for good reason. It offers a limitless supply of clean, safe, renewable energy for heat and power. And it’s more affordable, more efficient, and more reliable than ever.
The advantages of Solar and other renewable power sources are clear:
- greater independence from imported fossil fuels
- a cleaner environment
- diversity of power sources
- relief from the volatility of energy prices
- more jobs and greater domestic economic development
All over the world, solar energy systems have reduced the need to build more carbon-spewing fossil-fueled power plants. They are critical weapons in the battle against global warming. As the cost of solar technologies has come down, solar is moving into the mainstream and growing worldwide at 40-50% annually.
