Patently false. Solar panels continue to work in completely overcast conditions, and actually work better under cool conditions. Skeptics, look no further Germany (a cold-damp-grey trifecta), or outstandingly average New Jersey, where dollars-saved-per-installation is off the charts.

2012: 104 billion Kilowatt Hours, enough to power 1.2 million energy-guzzling U.S. homes. 2013: More solar deployed than the U.S.’s entire capacity. China is subsidizing their way into the global solar market in a big way (not without a few pitfalls).
