Solar To Play A Major Energy Role In The Future

In recent years, solar energy has gone from the fringe to mainstream. Solar costs have dropped dramatically while solar installations have similarly increased. Solar still provides less than 1 percent of the nation’s power, and in states like Wyoming, it’s virtually nonexistent. But many predict solar power will play a much larger role in the future.

Among them is Philip Warburg, author of the recently-published book Harness the Sun: America’s Quest for a Solar-Powered Future. He joined Wyoming Public Radio’s energy reporter, Stephanie Joyce, to talk about what he learned on his tour of solar projects across America.
