Cheaper installations of foreign-made solar panels are making solar competitive.
According to the Wall Street Journal, when Jimmy Carter installed a solar-powered water heating system in the White House in the late 1970s, solar panels cost $15 per watt of electricity generated, about $50 in current dollars!
Now they only average 84 cents a watt.
Is your state doing anything comparable?
From where I am writing in Nova Scotia, Canada, the province is turning steadily to wind power.
