In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Biden wants solar energy to power 40% of electricity within 14 years

Looks like someone in the Biden administration has been getting a little too much sun . . .

Anyway, prepare to open your pocketbooks and wallets.

From a statement released this morning by the Department of Energy:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today released the Solar Futures Study detailing the significant role solar will play in decarbonizing the nation’s power grid. The study shows that by 2035, solar energy has the potential to power 40% of the nation’s electricity, drive deep decarbonization of the grid, and employ as much as 1.5 million people—without raising electricity prices. The study’s findings call for massive and equitable deployment of clean energy sources, underscoring the Biden Administration’s efforts to tackle the climate crisis and rapidly increase access to renewable power throughout the country.

“The study illuminates the fact that solar, our cheapest and fastest-growing source of clean energy, could produce enough electricity to power all of the homes in the U.S. by 2035 and employ as many as 1.5 million people in the process,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “Achieving this bright future requires a massive and equitable deployment of renewable energy and strong decarbonization polices – exactly what is laid out in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.”

  1. This faux administration is doing nothing to build up, strengthen, or advance this country. If someone wants solar panels let them buy them, with their own money. Like abortion, I don’t want to pay for someone else’s foolishness or pipe dreams.

  2. Good grief. We here in AZ know more about solar panels and solar energy than anyone else. It’s not the savior of power grids, it’s not going to give Americans the power they need to survive or to work.
    The important thingabout solar power is the Sun, that’s it. If it’s not sunny long enough, there won’t be power to use. During the winter in the NE, how many sunny days are there?
    oh boy.

  3. I read destabilizing instead of decarbonizing. If solar is going to be 40% of our energy supply, I suspect there will not be sufficient power on hot days or on cold days. The grid cannot handle extreme weather as it is.

    BTW, solar is not the cheapest form of energy. It is one of the most expensive.
