INFOGRAPHIC: Solar power on the large and small scale

The sun has become one of the leading sources of clean and renewable energy in the US. More specifically, during the third quarter of 2014, panels that generate 1,354 MW of solar were installed in various parts of the country, which represents a 41% increase in solar power generating capability in comparison to the same period in 2013. While total solar output in the U.S. is still low, new technology, subsidies and the creation of sizable solar farms show that solar is continuing to advance and will remain an important employment avenue for future engineers. To learn more about solar, and how it can change our lives, check out the infographic below created by the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Online Masters in Electrical Engineering degree program.
