Could the Entire World Really Run on Solar Power?

At our house in Cebu we just finished installing 12 solar panels that generate
1200 watts of electric at maximum. So far so good! Have you started saving
energy and greenhouse gas too?
With the Philippines prone to regular brownouts it is much better to use quiet solar which needs no fuel standby by like generators require (and gas gets old and dangerous, noisy) and generators are hard to start and cost money to operate even after purchase while solar you can even hook up with electric company and sell them excess and keeps paying you back in contrast to generators!
It’s pretty safe to say that we all know that we have to find an alternative to
fossil fuels as soon as possible, and the most viable answer to the planet’s
energy needs is visible to us any time we look upward. The amount of solar
energy that hits just 1 square mile of this planet over the course of a year is
equal to 4 million barrels of oil, and the energy that hits the Earth in a mere
40 minutes can fuel all of humanity’s energy needs for a year. Isn’t that
incredible? Check out the infographic below to learn more about all the ways
that solar power is the way to go, and how we can go about making it a reality
I come up with about 2500 square miles for the US. There are more than 40,000
square miles in the Mohave desert alone. Presumably about 50% could be used for
