In areas where we have plenty of surface area and abundant sunshine we should make the best use of both. Let us the cover the tops of buildings and parking structures with solar panels. Buildings and structures serve a purpose, which is to protect us from the elements; however the tops of these structures just take up space - let us use them to their fullest capability. We should not be so dependent on fossil fuels or hydropower generation when we have plenty of sunlight. Hydropower is great; however, it requires water and water is a scarce commodity for many of us.
