Elon Musk: ‘We Can Power USA by Covering Small Corner of Utah With Solar Panels’
Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has once again championed the incredible potential of renewable energy.
During an interview Tuesday at the American Geophysical Union’s fall meeting in San Francisco, the 44-year-old CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX said that the U.S. could meet its electricity needs just by covering a small corner of Utah or Nevada with solar panels.

Musk made a similar statement during his speech at the Sorbonne University in Paris on Dec. 2.
"Let’s say if the only thing we had was solar energy — if that was the only power source — if you just took a small section of Spain you could power all of Europe," he said.
"It’s a very small amount of area that’s actually needed to generate the electricity we need to power civilization. Or in the case of the U.S., like a little corner of Nevada or Utah would power the United States."
