QuoteSolar is the ultimate energy source, because it will never run out! (well it least for a LONG while)Yea, but the materials needed to build solar panels are considered rare, and *will* run out. http://www.informationweek.com/news/global-cio/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=199703110http://www.geek.com/articles/chips/ibm-creates-efficient-solar-cell-using-abundant-materials-20100210/There is another source of "free energy", and thats boosting energy efficiency. A single 1% efficiency increase in the world is like 200+ power plants no longer needed.

Also, we don't even have to use panels, as there are many other ways to capture the suns energy. Wind is good to, but not as reliable.
