With the threat of global warming ever looming, in early September the Biden administration released their outline for procuring half of U.S. electricity from solar power by 2050. President Biden’s plan for solar energy is an ambitious and unprecedented one.
So far the Biden administration appear to have followed through on their campaign promises of new climate and energy plans that are designed to bring net planning-warming emissions within the power sector to zero by 2035.
President Biden’s plan for solar energy expansion in the U.S. involves quadrupling the amount of solar energy installed every year by 2030. It also involves adding offshore wind turbines to American waters, and mandating that half cars sold be electric by 2030.
In order for these plans to come to fruition, the current administrations will have to push for legislation and regulations. Legislation and regulations may ultimately fall to congress who have a bipartisan infrastructure bill in progress.
Besides the more obvious environmental benefits of relying on solar energy, there are also financial benefits that should offer incentive to homeowners and businesses making this transition more plausible. The price of solar panels have dropped drastically in recent years, making for a cheap energy source. Reliance on fossil fuels is also more costly than solar energy because of consequences like extreme weather.
