American Rooftops Can Supply Almost Twice As Much Power As Previously Thought
Another obstacle to a future powered by clean energy has been removed. A new assessment of the potential of America’s rooftops for solar power shows that they can make a much larger contribution to electricity requirements than previously recognized.
Despite the economies of scale of California’s huge solar power stations, there are advantages to placing solar panels on building roofs. Transmission costs are lower, grid stability higher, and the environmental problems associated with wilderness constructions disappear.
