When these sham green companies “happen, just HAPPEN” to go bankrupt, where does all that money go?
Seems like someone (wish I had the money) should buy all those SOLYNDRA solar tubes, and stick them on these concentrators.
Put those solar panels that work off IR and other frequencies other than visible light on the back side, and you’d have one hell of a power source.
There is no alternative energy source I know of right now that is competitive with the Big 4 - coal, nuke, oil, and natural gas.
Methane digesters, if designed right, are probably the only one but all the manure on the planet wouldn’t dent our energy needs. Switchgrass on occasion, none others I’m aware of except for rare exceptions that only apply to special situations not available to the general public.
Until we can come up with some source based on some other kind of nuclear reaction - we’re stuck with the Big 4 unless you want Grandma freezing in her home.
“small team” = those top insiders who have been enjoying big paychecks courtesy of Uncle Sam and who hope to find a way for that to continue, somehow. “Solar Panel Executive” is not exactly on the top of The Ladders search ;-)
Where have all the solars gone... Long time passing... When will they ever learn... When will they ever learn?
I think it was done by the Kingston Trio, wasn't it?
