Did you know that more power from the sun hits earth in a single hour than humanity uses in an entire year? Roof Stores wanted to find out how mankind would go about harnessing this energy to produce an earth powered entirely by solar.
It turns out an area equivalent to 1.2% of the Sahara desert is all that would be needed! Realistically, this would cost around $5 Trillion. Which does sound like a lot. But, to put it into perspective, that is the same amount as:
- What the US spent on wars in the Middle East and Asian since 2001
- What the world spend on the military and it’s weapons in just 3 years
- The amount of money Americans spend on fast food over 3 Years
Find out where these global ‘solar farms’ should be located, and the challenges that would face this project by reading the full article.
