Solar panels are very powerful devices, but exactly how powerful are they? It’s easy to look up how much wattage the average industrial photovoltaic panel produces, but that information is useless without a reference point. How many panels–or square miles of panels–does it take to power a home? What about an outdoor performance stage? Or even a country?
This infographic provides all of that information in a clear, concise way. Compiling data from multiple reliable sources, it explains how many solar panels would be necessary to produce the charge for an electric car indefinitely and expands from there, eventually discussing how many panels it would take to power the United States and then the world.
Individuals and organizations are doing a wide variety of things to reduce their carbon footprint and take advantage of renewable energy, and with the current growth of the solar market anything seems possible. From electric cars to stages that are powered entirely by the sun, innovation is relentless. Could the entire world be one day powered by solar energy? It may still happen. Take a look at the infographic to learn exactly how feasible that achievement would be.
