The earth receives more energy from the sun in an hour than is used in the entire world in one year.
Wind is a form of solar energy, created from uneven heating of the earth’s surface.
The amount of energy that goes into creating solar panels is paid back through clean electricity production within 1 – 2 years, depending on where they are used. This compares with a serviceable life of decades.
Solar and wind power systems have 100 times better lifetime energy yield than either nuclear or fossil energy system per tonne of mined materials.
The area of roof space available in Australia is enough to provide all of the nations electricity using solar panels.
It would take only around 0.3% of the world’s land area to supply all of our electricity needs via solar power.
