Where can I read about building solar panels that can convert the energy into electricity?

Is it a good idea to create all the electricity that Australia needs by building solar powered generators in?

We Answered:

I think that’s a great idea, but like others said before, solar power is quite inefficient and a large amount of space would be required for such a project. Even though there’s a lot more desert than there is densely inhabited space, and there are only 20 million people to provide energy for, it just seems a bit extreme to cover the desert with solar panels. I think it would be better to use solar power along with other energy sources and start a slow transition from these to full solar power once more efficient technology is developed.
