"Wind energy accounted for 20 percent of new global power capacity in 2016" - International Energy Agency
Solar capacity increased by 50% in 2016, faster than the growth of any other energy source.
The average cost of electricity in the U.S. has gone from $0.09 in 2005 to $0.13 in 2015.
The cost of solar panels has dropped about 60% since 2010.
The 30% federal Investment Tax Credit for solar is good through 2019.
If all solar-ready roof areas in the U.S. actually featured PV installations, the resultant energy would provide an astounding 39% of the entire country’s power needs.
The US 30% solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) has been extended and the wind credit that had expired will be extended as well.
The extension of the solar tax credit was unexpectedly included in an omnibus spending bill agreed upon. Whereas the 30% tax credit was set to go away in 2017 for residential solar, the extension will provide for the following schedule: • 2017-2019: 30% • 2020: 26 % • 2021: 22% • 2022 and beyond: 10% (non-residential and third-party-owned residential) or 0% (host-owned residential)
Aspen is the third American city to make the transition to 100% renewable energy. Following in the footsteps of Burlington, Vermont and Greensburg, Kansas.
Solar costs have plummeted in recent years, from around $150 per watt in 1970 to less than 40 cents per watt today.
"I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that." - Thomas Edison
Market trends like the volatility of fossil fuels and the declining costs of wind and solar, have driven a six-fold increase in non-hydro renewables in the last decade. This is another record breaking year for renewable energy in both the developed and developing world. All around the world, renewables are growing at a faster rate than ever before. In 2015, for the first time ever, renewable energy accounted for more than half of new power generation worldwide.
A recent Gallup poll determined that 2 out of 3 Americans want the U.S to put more emphasis on generating domestic energy through renewable sources.
The earth receives about 1,366 watts of direct solar radiation per square meter.
"Solar Power may produce 8-13% of global electricity by 2030" - Bloomberg Technology
Adding solar panels to an average home which pays $130 per month for electricity, would eliminate approximately 361 tons of CO2, 1324 lbs of NOx, 1838 lbs of SO2, 45 lbs of PM, 19 lbs of VOC, and 163 lbs of CO. That is equivalent to taking approximately, 63 automobiles off of the road, or planting 1060 trees.
The Average American Who Goes Solar Can Save About $20,000 Over 20 Years from their Solar Power Systems
