    This isn't passive collection via PV panels.  The plants out in the desert are massive things that concentrate sunlight to create steam to turn turbines.

    But I am with you -- if we covered even 1/10 of rooftops in this country with PV panels, we'd have all the energy we need for everything.

    More solar energy hits the surface of this planet on any given day than will be burned in the entire history of all fossil fuels combined.  Why are we not making more of an effort to harvest it?
