Summary "Drawing on case studies and information collected over the past decade, Solar Power tells a story about the social and environmental considerations for scaling solar power. The book articulates a vision for a more sustainable and just solar industry. While decarbonizing electricity systems with clean, solar power will have tremendous social and environmental benefits, scaling solar industries for electricity will have impacts from global supply chains to land use, through end-of-life that need attention to avoid environmental justice, land use, and waste impacts associated with manufacturing, deployment, and disposal of these clean technologies"--Provided by publisher.
