From his electric car company Tesla to Starlink, a company that was born as a SpaceX project to create a constellation of internet satellites, Elon Musk constantly seeks ways to innovate towards the future. In that sense, he already has in mind His next goal: an ambitious mega energy project with which he will illuminate the world.

In this sense, the businessman claims to know how to satisfy, once and for all, the growing energy needs of today’s society. As he explained, the energy demand of the entire United States could be satisfied with the help of a gigantic fusion reactor installed in the heavens and powered by powerful energy: the Sun.

During his participation in The Joe Rogan Experiencea podcast hosted by commentator and comedian Joe Roganon October 31, 2023, the owner of the social network potential of solar energy to meet US energy demand “You could actually power the entire United States with 100 miles by 100 miles of solar energy,” he declared. Translated into the metric system, this would be equivalent to a installation of solar panels of around 160 square kilometers.

“Absolutely,” Musk responded when Rogan asked if it was possible to get an available piece of land that size and cover it with panels. Furthermore, he added: “We need batteries, but yes.” Meanwhile, he maintained that “it is not difficult” and that it is “very feasible” to power that entire country with solar energydue to the Sun’s ability to convert more than four million tons of mass into energy every second without requiring maintenance.

This perspective not only highlights the technological possibilities, but also draws attention to the financial potential of the solar industry. In the United States, a record 32 GW of new solar capacity was expected to be added during 2023, an increase of 52% compared to 2022according to a report from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).

The rise of solar energy has attracted the attention of various companies seeking to harness the power of the sun. Three of the solar companies with the greatest upside potential are Enphase Energy, First Solar and Teslaall of them with favorable ratings, according to Money Wise.
