This is my favorite @1bog #solar infographic ever: What if BP had spilled solar panels?

This is my favorite @1bog #solar infographic ever: What if BP had spilled solar panels?

I guess I also don’t get it. Are you saying that this solar panel would be able to meet all of the US’s (plus Central and South America’s) energy needs for 25 years (assuming we had a storage mechanism to deal with night, the transmission infrastructure to distribute, etc.), but that after that point energy needs would be greater than the solar output? Or are you saying that in some period of time, a solar panel that big could produce all of the energy that would be needed for the next 25 years (assuming that we had some way to store this energy)? If the latter, what is the period of time necessary to generate the energy – a day, week, month, year…?
