Personally I find this extremely interesting, as we always hear the push to go renewable, and how more renewable can you get than the sun after all? As solar eclipses are quite rare thankfully, in the far future, people may simply have to: go outside, spend time with loved ones, or adjust to a few hours without power during future eclipses. Energy experts will have their work cut out for them though figuring out how to deal with the sudden loss/return of energy, which could be extremely damaging. Perhaps in the future we will be able to segment portions of solar panels to turn back on, thus easing into the energy return. All I can say, is I wish I was in Europe to see this!
