In my opionion, I believe that solar power has incredible potential. From solar fields producing mass amounts of electricity to a few panels on a roof to power a single home, solar power is an amazing resource. A great example of solar power, during a recent snow storm the power on our block went out. Thanks to my neighbors solar panels that store there energy in a battery, she was the only house on the block with power.

Solar and wind power have both experienced explosive growth over the past decade, but both still account for a very small portion of the world's energy. Global wind power capacity grew from under 5 gigawatts (GW) in 1996 to nearly 240GW by 2011 — a nearly 50-fold increase. But that translated into only 2.8% of the electricity produced in the U.S. and 1.6% of the electricity produced in China.
