Solar energy might have got the break it needs. After Stanford University published its findings this week, their study proves that "utility-scale solar development" along with existing solar panels both residential and commercial, is enough to give power to communities.
The study's research was published in Nature Climate Change and concentrated on "land-use efficiency in California," according to Common dreams. California is being called "a global energy hotspot." Through the study, it was determined that "he quantity of accessible energy potentially produced from photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating solar power (CSP) within the built environment exceeds current statewide demand" after it examined urban developments as localized sources for renewable energy.
While some opponents of solar infrastructures believe they could endanger wildlife and take over scarce land, scientists said that using "rooftops, vacant lots and industrial sites" are one way to make sure there is no environmental conflict.
