    • The world could absolutely be 100% solar powered. The untapped potential of solar energy vastly dwarfs any other source of energy. Grid parity has already been achieved. It’s apparently a political problem.

      The good news for homeowners is that they now have an opportunity to do their part to help speed up this transition while governments continue to stall. American homeowners can save thousands over the long term by switching to solar power now. The key is to acquire your own financing rather than get a long term lease.

      PV grade silicon isn’t mined, it is made by chemical reaction!

      Also this article neatly ignores the problem of storage which also needs addressing in order to smooth out both peak and nightly demands. Overall though it is a nice and simple summary.

      You forgot the most inportant enabling factor – Energy storage!
      Only when this is truly and economically resolved then PV can play its significant role

        I was looking for just this subject being explored in this article, instead I only find it in a comment.

      I am a big fan of solar power but the article ignores all the other sources that could wean us off fossil fuels: wind, tidal, geothermal, micro hydro and 5th generation nuclear. There is no need to be a purist if the goal is a sustainable future for our children.

      Is anyone working on PV roof shingles ?
