The Possible Loss of Solar Energy During the Solar Eclipse

Today, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will be visible in parts of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. During a total solar eclipse, the Moon fully covers the Sun while passing between the Earth and the Sun. This results in a few minutes of total darkness, while the Sun is partially obscured for over two hours.

According to Solcast, a DNV company, there could be a loss of up to 39.9 GWh in solar energy production across US grids during the eclipse. This is equivalent to the daily energy usage of 1.3 million US homes! This phenomenon presents a real question about how we can manage the loss of sun for a few hours. The current solution is to use fossil fuels, but in the future, we must be able to do so with storage and 100% renewable energy. At Vulkano, we are dedicated to solving these types of problems! 🚀 ☀️
