Solar power continues it's rise!

Updated: Dec 24, 2023

Solar power has seen an rise in popularity over the last decade. Increasing demand for renewable energy sources and the decreasing cost of solar technology, solar power has become a solid option for powering homes, and businesses. As we look to the future here is what we see happening.


Solar power will become the dominant source of energy worldwide.

As the cost of solar power continues to decrease while fossil fuels become increasingly expensive, solar power is expected to become the dominant source of energy worldwide. Many predict that by 2050, solar power is predicted to provide up to 50% of the world's electricity with wind energy also increasing.


The cost of solar power will continue to decrease.

The cost of solar power has already decreased significantly over the last decade, and this trend is expected to continue. As technology improves and production scales up, the cost of solar panels and associated equipment is expected to decrease even further. The supply chain issues are also starting to slow.


Solar power will become more efficient.

As technology improves, solar panels will become more efficient at converting sunlight into electricity. This will make solar power an even more attractive option for powering homes and businesses.


Solar power will become more accessible to low-income communities.

As the cost of solar decreases, it will become more accessible to moderate and low-income communities. This will help more people save money on their energy bills, but it will also help reduce their dependence on fossil fuels.


The adoption of solar power will accelerate in developing countries.

Developing countries are expected to adopt solar power at an even faster rate than developed countries. This is due to solar power being more cost-effective than traditional power sources in these regions, and because it can provide access to electricity in areas that are not currently connected to the grid.


Battery storage will become more important.

As solar power becomes more widespread, battery storage will become more important for storing excess energy generated during the day for use at night. As the cost of battery storage continues to decrease, it will become more accessible to homeowners and businesses.


Solar power will become a major driver of job growth.

As the adoption of solar power continues to increase, it will become a major driver of job growth. This is because the installation and maintenance of solar panels and associated equipment requires a skilled workforce.


Solar power is poised to play a major role in our energy future. It is predicted to become the dominant source of energy worldwide, while continuing to decrease in cost and increase in efficiency. As more communities adopt solar power, it will become more accessible to low-income communities and will help drive job growth in the renewable energy sector.
