It is funny that whenever they talk technology, they talk to Politicians.
Solar energy is 100 years old.
If it was easy to get high current densities, it would have been done long ago.

“A top state official said that the average residential customer would pay $1 to $1.50 a month under the Patrick plan, which aims to cut air pollution and create more jobs in the growing solar-energy industry.”

In this economy and especially the economy in Boston, people will not be able to afford that $1.50 extra per month as that adds up to $18.00 a year and $180.00 over ten years.

And while they claim this will create jobs in the solar industry, they fail to mention the jobs that will be lost in a struggling oil and gas industry.

Can’t get the Cape Winds Project off the ground in Nantucket Sound because it would spoil the view for the BP.

To say nothing about the jobs that will be lost in all high-energy-using industries.

I happened to visit a gov’t building in Falmouth, MA a few years ago. The building was apparently a demonstration project for green energy and was equipped with a windmill and solar panels. Trouble was, it was January and there was a foot of snow covering the roof panels and the windmill was iced up.

Those solar panels must be working good right about now with all the snow, ice and cloudy skies.
