The nature of the opposition to rooftop solar is a measure of the power of the solution:
- A simple calculation shows, for example, that the USA can be energy self-sufficient and independent in less than 10 years by focusing on rooftop solar alone. Include parking lots, road and railway right-of-ways, airports, golf courses, athletic fields, solar farms, EV charging stations, water desalination, and optimal EEU.
- For many RCIT applications like buildings, industrial processes, EV transportation, and reverse osmosis desalination using energy recovery pumps, the medium is the message, the end use is the storage medium.
- All that is currently missing is the co-operation, optimism, flexibility, ingenuity, and determination that fostered the much smaller information technology revolution, put humanity on the moon, and revealed our place in the cosmos.
- The solution is, of necessity, inclusive. Everyone can and must participate, contribute, and benefit.
- And a major collateral benefit worldwide, energy and security for all unprecedented in human history.
