A new report from The Weather Channel suggests solar power isn’t nearly as expensive as you might think.
The channel released a report Wednesday titled “Energy, Jobs and Climate” which focuses on how solar is affecting our energy mix, and how it could help reduce carbon emissions.
The report looks at how much we are getting back from the sun, and it estimates that solar power can bring in $3.1 trillion in energy savings over the next 20 years.
It estimates that if the cost was adjusted for inflation, it could save $1,600 a year.
That’s a big difference from what solar power currently costs, and solar advocates say that’s a huge benefit.
“The solar industry is one of the few that’s really on par with fossil fuels,” said David Wasko, president of the Solar Energy Industries Association.
“It’s the cleanest energy source out there.
And if we’re going to get to a sustainable future, we’re not going to have to pay $300 a kilowatt hour to produce energy.”
The cost of the solar panels on the roof of a home is typically $4,000, and many homes aren’t connected to the grid, making them expensive to operate.
In some cases, homeowners may be unable to afford to pay that amount.
“For people that have a fixed income, the cost can be prohibitive,” said Waskos.
“But if you’re someone that’s getting the lowest dollar-per-hour, it’s a small price to pay.”
There are some challenges associated with solar panels, like the fact that they don’t always work at night, and the amount of power required to run them at full capacity is very small.
But it’s important to note that solar panels are also expensive to install.
The cost is estimated at $1.6 billion per watt.
It’s unclear how much solar energy is needed to meet the average U.S. home’s electricity needs.
There are also a lot of environmental regulations that need to be met to get the panels built, and those regulations aren’t easy to predict.
The Weather News reports that while the U.N. is planning a new carbon-reduction plan for 2030, solar is already contributing to the U
