How will solar power affect our lives in the future?
What is your prediction?

I think solar power will affect your lives in the future pretty much the same way it affects your lives today, only more so. Think of all the ways that solar power is used today: solar water-heaters, passive solar space heating in houses with lots of windows, solar powered electronic devices and communications satellites. In the future you will probably see more of these things as the cost of solar power gets cheaper and the cost of oil and natural gas gets more expensive.
