Solar energy is sort of a silly challenge, not because it's not important or interesting even innovative. It's simply silly that it's so challenging.
In September, not a single new fossil fueled power plant was brought online. No coal, no natural gas. No new carbon-spewers. Instead, we saw five brand new wind farms bring 300 megawatts of capacity online, and 18 new solar installations that clocked…
The United Nations thinks that universal access to "sustainable" energy can be achieved in less than 20 years. That would mean that everyone on earth would be plugged in to clean-skewing electricity sources by 2030. Seeing as how there are some 1.3 b…
