WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Biden administration on Wednesday released a report showing that the U.S. can get 40% of its electricity from solar energy by 2035 – a significant ramp up from its current share of generation.
The Solar Futures Study outlines how solar energy can help decarbonize the U.S. power grid and help achieve a Biden administration goal of achieving net zero emissions in the electricity sector by 2035.
“The study illuminates the fact that solar, our cheapest and fastest-growing source of clean energy, could produce enough electricity to power all of the homes in the U.S. by 2035 and employ as many as 1.5 million people in the process,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm in a statement.
