Very encouraging… but still a long way from undoingnthe damage caused by Pollution by the 200 year old Industrial Age.
To put things in perspective….
• US will need about 18,000TWhrs/yr by 2050 to meet ALL ITS ENERGY NEEDS ANDVELIM8NATE POLLUTION.
• This will require a 15TW PV System needing 100,000km2 of Sun Exposure.
• Using AgriVoltaics, this can be EASILY ACHIEVED by using just 2.5% of the 4Million km2 of Farmland in USA.. TODAY… as you continue to grow food below and generate Solar-PV Electricity above… NO NEW LAND IS NEEDED…
At present… the USA generates 840TWhrs/yr FROM ALL RenewablecEnergy Sources (Solar, Wind, Hydro )… excluding Biomass (which pollutes due to combustion)
So you can see… why USA has a long long way to go to be a ZERO POLLUTION US of A… from 840TWhrs/yr to 18,000TWhrs/yr by 2050.. over 20 Times more in 30 years…
