Solar On Every Rooftop sign now

There is tremendous potential for solar energy. More readily recoverable solar energy falls on the earth in one year than will ever be obtained forever from the earths non-renewable resources of coal, natural gas, oil, and nuclear combined. While covering the Gobi desert with solar panels will generate as much total energy as the entire planet currently uses, and covering the Sahara many times that, it is more practical to provide distributed local generation by installing panels to generate electricity where it is consumed, by putting solar panels on every rooftop.

Since solar panels only generate power during daylight hours, electric transmission lines are used to send extra power generated during the day to hydro-electric pumped storage, which is 78\% efficient, for use during the night, when electricity needs are typically half what they are during the daytime.

With increased generation capacity from renewable solar power, coal and nuclear power plants can be closed, improving the quality of the environment. Automobiles can be converted to battery operation, charged overnight at home from solar power that was generated during the day, reducing CO2 emissions and reversing global warming.

Wind power can also be used to supplement solar, but wind resources available are much less than solar - a hundred times less.

I would like to see solar on every rooftop:
