Scientists warn that a total solar Eclipse, which will happen on 20 March, it may result in the loss of 98% of solar energy (this is especially significant for countries that rely heavily solar panels). It is also called the “energy blackout”. The last time such phenomenon was observed in August 1999. photo: Kirill Iskoldsky
