Solar Energy's Greatest Challenge

More electricity produced by solar panels sounds like it's a win-win proposition. But with the current structure of our power grid, solar energy actually causes a problem. Called the "duck curve," demand for energy dips when solar energy production is at its highest, potentially causing damage to the grid. Which means some solar panels are shut off at their peak production, causing energy to be wasted. Find out the details in this explanation from Vox.
