In the last year, solar power installations grew globally and in the United States by at least 28 percent which is why solar power will thrive. Along with installation growth, the U.S. solar industry employment reached a milestone. The industry now employs more than 200,000 workers, making it three times larger than the coal mining industry. For such a prosperous beginning against climate change, we believe solar power will thrive in the years to come.
Solar Costs Have Dropped
Solar unit costs have dropped by an approximate 80 percent since 2007 and are expected to continue decreasing. This makes solar power much more affordable for homeowners. Solar power’s competitive strength will continue to grow in the years ahead.
Solar power does not produce air pollutants or heat-trapping gases where oil has drastically impacted climate change and health issues because of its toxins. In areas where people lack electricity, solar power plays a major role and makes electricity easily accessible.
It has been an extraordinary path for renewable energy. Many doubted how renewable energy would be adopted into modern day life, but it has proven to be much more successful. It is now easily integrated and being pushed forth in many countries as more people recognize the importance to fight against climate change.
