Happy “Shout Out for Solar” Day from GIC
Did you know that solar is one of the fastest growing industries in the US? Currently the industry employs over 120,000 people nationwide. To date solar generates enough power to run approximately 2 million homes. Why wouldn’t we love solar here at GIC?
Here are some fun solar facts:
- The average size for a solar panel needed to power the average home is 600 sq. ft.
- The average annual growth rate of global solar energy capacity is 102%
- There are 8.2 million quads of solar energy that hits the earth every year.
- Currently we only supply 400 quads of energy globally with solar power annually.
- We save 75 million barrels of oil each year with the solar power we generate.
- Germany is the global leader in solar energy.
