Being a conservative, are you aware that we spend a tremendous amount of tax and health insurance premium money to support the burning of coal? It’s really wasteful how much money we spend in addition to what we pay at the meter. Estimates are that coal produced electricity costs at least $0.18kWh.
Solar, in sunny locations, is already down to $0.15/kWh and will continue to drop in price.
Solar produces power during the hours in which utility companies often pay far, far more for power from gas peaker plants. having solar available means that utility companies cut their costs and our price at the meter can drop.
Solar is already a conservative’s dream. It’s producing cheaper power, saving us both personal and government money. And it’s going to get even better, a lot better.
And solar is creating a lot of good jobs in America. More people off the dole, making a good living to support their families, supporting local businesses, and paying taxes. It’s the sort of stuff we need to get our country rolling once more.
