Solar energy is the conversion of sunlight into electricity and heat. It’s the ultimate renewable power source in that it consumes nothing and provides an endless supply of clean, usable energy.
The United States consumes about 4000 Terawatt-Hours of electricity annually. Solar only makes up about 2.3% of that but it continues to grow at a rapid pace.
Solar has experienced solid double-digit growth year after year for the last decade, with all signs pointing to increasing growth. This is fueled by several things: a desire for clean renewable energy, increasing prices for non-renewable fuel sources and an astonishing drop in the cost of solar installations. In fact, the cost to install solar has dropped by more than 70% over the last decade.
