Solar Power from Sahara

Yesterday, I read in newspaper that a German based company is planning to generate solar power based out of Sahara desert by 2050. Also, the project claims that it can cater 15% of power requirement of Europe. This quite inspiring and shows the commitment towards saving earth. But the beauty that these consortium believes that it can generate power by 2015. Let wish the project a great success and let us follow in our homes/offices.

This is what we call big thinking.

But, why are we not thinking to generate solar power at homes/offices. In my aunt's home, they have solar power that runs two florescent bulbs and a fan. Is it a futuristic thinking? My uncle is a big thinker.
