Solar Costs

What would be the approximate costs if the US had to rely on solar power?

Say the US needed a new source of power/energy. If we relied on solar power, what would be the approximate costs? please help!

The US generates approximately a terawatt of electricity. At $10 a watt, going fully solar would cost about $10,000,000,000,000. That is just for electricity and does not include fuel for transporation.
