    The total amount of solar energy that hits the earth could take care of humanities energy needs 20,000 times over. This is because humans use a total of about 400 quads (one quadrillion British Thermal Units) of energy per year. However, the earth receives 8.2 million quads of solar energy every year. It is for this reason that solar energy is such a powerful resource if it can be developed in a way that allows us to capture all the energy needs we have in efficient and easy ways.
