In the 1980’s I purchase a solar system to provide heat to my home. It worked somewhat but not to the level as was advertised. Even back then with government subsidies great claims were made about what solar power could achieve if there was just more government money invested in it. (Have we heard that recently?) And now just like back then companies took the money, made a few shrewd business people rich (?), but failed to produce the promised results. Technology has advanced since then for sure.
I like solar energy. But it must stand on its own in the market place to succeed. Clearly, at this point in time it has not.
