Over the past ten years solar energy capacity has grown by at least 68 percent each year. This massive growth has created a reliance on solar energy including states like California and North Carolina.
On August 21st the United States will endure a solar eclipse where the moon will completely hide the sun. The event in total will cause disruption to solar energy production for around two, to two and a half hours. Other sources of energy will need to be harnessed on this day to avoid energy shut downs. This is the first total solar eclipse since 1979 and solar energy reliance was not an issue then.
Will be interesting to see how the nation handles this potential energy crisis.
