Wow - Elon Musk shows how little land is needed to power USA with Solar

Tue May 10, 2016 10:39 pm

“We may not power the United States entirely on solar, but if we did, it would take a rather small fraction of the land area: Watch the SolarCity video on how much land would it take? Probably not what you think!”

I don't know if the video takes into account cloudy days etc, but even if it wasn't optimal, and we needed 4-5 times the space, there's still that much unused desert probably already in the southwest of the country?!

North America is so vast between wind, tidal and solar power we really should be able to steer away from fossil fuel energy

Wish countries were working harder to increase the usage of solar power.
