Perusing the web this morning, I came across an article at a preparedness website that mentioned something about a solar panel shortage worldwide. Curious, I googled “solar panel shortage”..and sure enough, it seems we have a problem. Some sites that sell solar panels are saying there could be a 3-6 month wait time from the time you order your panels, and even then the time frame is not guaranteed.
Sounds to me like we have an issue coming up that needs to be dealt with immediately. It takes oil to make the solar cells. We are running out of oil. People want more solar panels and supply cannot keep up with demand now when we have oil.
What happens in the near future when the oil runs out, and no one can get solar panels?
Maybe I need to put my order in now and store them in a closet….
