Solar has limited applications. But go ahead and watch the TV at night with solar or in heavy clouds.
The EPA has been doing a wonderful job imposing all sorts of outlandish costs on all those powerful utilities, driving up the energy costs of so many Americans, wealthy and destitute alike. Even Al Gore must pay more to heat his mansions.
