Solar power currently supplies less than 1 percent of electricity generation in the United States, yet the sun is an enormous source of power with the potential to supply large amounts of the worlds energy. Through a narrative-driven pro/con format—supported by relevant facts, quotes, anecdotes, and full-color illustrations—this title examines the future of solar power. Topics include: Is Solar Power Affordable? How Does Solar Power Impact the Environment? Can Solar Power Ever Replace Fossil Fuels? and Should Government Play a Role in Developing Solar Power?
