    Are you disputing the long lines that were reported? If so then present the evidence otherwise.

    We were discussing solar panels on a roof. And I sourced how much a solar panel cost. What you're sourcing is also the fancy hardware of how the electricity goes into the net, and the software keeping track of how much you're making.

    Of course. The state where everyone just craps where the urge strikes them. Needles and human feces are the norm.

    Not seeing something like that with such a small number.

    The Best-Laid Energy Plans
    The feds bet $737 million on a salt tower for solar power. You’ll never guess the result.


    Government planning and subsidies will make America the world’s green-energy superpower, create millions of jobs, and supercharge the economy—or so we’re told. The reality is closer to Crescent Dunes, a Nevada solar-energy plant that has gone bust after receiving a $737 million federal loan guarantee....

    ....Operations halted again. The Department of Energy sent a formal default notice in September. Weeks later Crescent Dunes’ sole customer, NV Energy, terminated its power purchase agreement. The plant has no prospective clients and couldn’t supply energy even if it found a buyer.

    Another government waste of money theoretical solution down the drain. What's your next answer?

    Oh no, technology never ever improves and we never become better at doing new things. Everything stays the same and anybody suggesting anything new is a witch.

    If conservatives had their way we would still be lighting our houses with whale oil and the oceans would be dominated by massive cetacean farms while they would be going on about the Black New Deal and how insane it was to think that we could get power from some arcane black liquid in the ground instead of giant marine mammals as God intended.

    If solar panels can keep me from ever paying an electric bill for my house or gassing up my electric car I think AOC should be President, **** her age.
