"Solar farms can be found in deserts, on military bases, atop closed landfills, and even floating on reservoirs, deploying silicon panels to harvest the photons streaming to earth." Project Drawdown
Solar farms provide an unlimited and clean source of energy, that in many countries is now cheaper than coal power. In Chile, the price of solar has fallen below that of conventional energy sources as they have become a world leader in solar energy. By installing solar farms, the country has harnessed the incredible solar power of the Atacama Desert. Large-scale solar projects are increasingly being built around the US too, and in a variety of climates. The most expansive project yet was built in snowy Minnesota. Just as Chile has become a leader for countries in solar energy, Apple has emerged as a trailblazer for businesses. The company now operates on 100% clean energy by integrating solar farms into their data centers. As solar energy becomes cheaper and more widespread, it will lead the way in a shift to renewable energies.
