While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    HOW HIGH SOLAR CAN FLY

    Solar Impulse 2: Sun-Powered Aircraft Signals Major Progress In Global Solar Energy Sector

    Maria Gallucci, March 17, 2015 (International Business Times)

    “…[Rooftop solar systems cost] around 80 percent less today than in 2008…In some parts of the United States, solar power is actually cheaper than conventional fossil fuel energy…Nearly 200,000 homes and businesses added on-site solar projects last year, bringing the country’s total count to more than 600,000…[C]ompanies installed a record 6,200 megawatts of PV capacity in 2014 -- a 30 percent jump over the previous year. By 2020, developers worldwide are expected to spend more than $134 billion annually on solar energy systems, up by more than 50 percent compared to 2013…Perhaps no project better captures the industry’s achievements than the Solar Impulse 2, the panel-powered aircraft currently circumnavigating the globe and set to land on U.S. soil this spring. Solar experts say the Impulse mission shows the public just how far PV technology has advanced…[Two Swiss pilots] are leading the airborne mission, which launched March 9 from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates…[It flew] over the Arabian Sea to Ahmedabad, India…[and] next travels to Myanmar and China before [making several stops in the U.S. and returning this spring to] Abu Dhabi…” click here for more
