In just about 90 minutes, the amount of sunlight that reaches the Earth contains more energy than the world consumes in a year. While solar generation only accounted for 3% of electricity in the US in 2020, it's projected to reach 20% by 2050 according to data from the US Energy Information Administration. This episode of Off Grid features a story from the United States, examining the progress of the solar power industry. As the cost of solar energy systems has significantly decreased, more Americans and businesses are adopting clean energy. Aaron Davis, a South Carolina resident and solar power company owner, provides insight into the workings of solar power structures, dispels myths, and presents an optimistic outlook for the industry.
