I discovered that they have actually been there for about 18 months, so Google needs to get cracking on keeping Earth up to date. Presumably they aren't worried about updating the images for southwestern Baltimore County because nothing ever happens here. Ha!

This seems to be the future. But note the scale of this. To power our civilization with the sun means devoting a lot of acreage to solar panels. This installation felt big to me, but CCBC estimates that over 20 years it will only supply 27% of their energy needs. This is why I think we will never get to anything like 100% solar power, or 100% solar + wind. It just takes too much space. We need other approaches: natural gas for the next few decades, then hydro, nuclear, eventually fusion, and maybe especially more effort on saving energy. I have posted here before about technologies that make houses and office buildings energy neutral (they produce as much power as they use, from quite small solar arrays), and we need to keep working harder in that direction.
