America Loves Solar Power! (Infographic)

A whopping 89 percent of Americans think it's important for the U.S. to develop and use solar power, according to a research survey published by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). For the fourth consecutive year, the survey found that about nine out of 10 Americans strongly favored solar energy. The statistics are particularly telling in this fourth year, however, because the survey took place following the much publicized Solyndra bankruptcy.   

Further research from SEIA predicts America's love affair with solar energy will continue over the next two years. The association says some analysts predict the U.S. will become the world's largest solar market by 2014. In addition, solar is already the fastest growing energy sector in the U.S. and will likely be the largest source of new energy capacity in America by 2014.

Take a look at UMA Solar's detailed infographic to learn more about American support of solar energy.

  1. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs have changed Computer history completely. But the interesting part is who is known as father of computers- Charles Baggage did not know that he would make an important place in history with his invention. Modern computers based on integrated circuits are millions to billions of times more capable than the early machines, and occupy a fraction of the space. Simple computers are small enough to fit into mobile device, and mobile computer can be powered by small batteries. Personal computers in their various forms are icon of the Information Age and are what most people think of as "computers". It was a great invention of world history.

  2. Solar power is without doubt the future of energy and it is great to hear that America seems so behind this. We no doubt need a larger scale use of more renewable energy and with such support from the public, it should hopefully propel this into a possibility.
