I can't say whether or not EOM will ever bu First Solar (I don't know the higher ups that well), but I am in the EOM world every shift.
EOM just released a massive report on what it forecasts the world will be like in 2040 (as far as energy). The report covers all known sources of energy, including Solar.
EOM forecast solar energy growing 20% from now to 2040, at which time (2040) solar energy will account for 2% of the total world energy consumption.
Natural gas (fastest growing), nuclear, and coal will be the primary sources according to the report.
Yeah, I'm sure the largest company in the world has never thought of that and looked into the economics of it. And all this time the answer was sitting on a Yahoo message board !
hey dim-boy, you see those #$%$ earnings, not from exxon this morning ??? you better break out the wick lamps, it might get cold tonight !!!!!
