Obamah places his own order for solar panels.

That's one way to prop up and bail out his failing green companies.

They will NOT be more efficient until they hit the break even point. How long will it take to generate electricity whose values finally exceeds the cost of the panels and their installation?

They are using military money to pump up Obama’s energy companies.

I think they should use solar to power Air Force One.

Maybe the USAF should be concentrating on mission preparedness and not this environmental BS...

if the price of solar panels has dropped like a stone, why hasn’t the consumer, either in industry or homeowners seen lower prices of an installed product? It happens in other “high tech” products like TV and computers - why not solar?

I'm undecided about this. For most homeowners solar is a waste of money.

On military bases in Nevada just send the young airmen out once a month to clean the panels for peak efficiency. My gut still says it's a waste of money, but in some cases it might work out OK.

With more than 500 years of cheap energy stored in our ground, which can be produced to the benefit of the nation in terms of employment and national independence, we keep on screwing around with windmills and solar cells.

Stupidity seems to be an American invention.

What stupidity. What’s the AF gonna do - drop solar panels onto the bad guys?

The money should be spent on more F-22s
