The solar energy revolution has arrived
Solar technology will destroy coal and oil as energy sources even if Dumbass Trump stamps his feet, holds his breath and refuses to play with the rest of the world.
Solar is on the same kind of Moore’s law–like path that has made computing power so cheap.
Solar tech isn’t improving at computing’s breakneck pace, but it’s on a predictable, sustainable and impressive trajectory toward cheaper and better.
By about 2030—13 years from now—solar will be able to produce electricity at half the cost of coal and lower than the cost of any carbon source.
