Author | Jaime RamosA solar farm does not need to be located in the middle of a desert to be efficient. Nor are large areas required to exploit the full potential of solar energy. Thanks to the technological advancements of this millennium, obtaining solar photovoltaic power can be skilfully adapted to buildings and all types of furnishings.In fact, there are already a number of cities that are studying the benefits of this form of energy production. According to a study by the Environment America Research & Policy Center, solar power generation doubled in 45 out of the 57 biggest American cities.This confirms that photovoltaic production is included in the plans of many major cities. However, there are some concerns regarding whether cities are the ideal setting for the installation of thousands of solar panels.
