The U.S. installed 506 megawatts of photovoltaic panels in the first quarter last year. Now, the nation is focusing to install a total of 3,300 megawatts of solar panels by the end of this year.

    Great post, solar energy would grow even faster only if prices of developing such energy would drop.
    But as we can see it’s still growing fast, and one day it’ll be cheap and used in every home and company.
    thanks for sharing

    The US gets 50% of electrical power from
    coal plants. This is an immense carbon footprint thanks to the US energy-consuming habits. Solar energy has no carbon
    footprint and it is a viable energy option.
