Alert! Duke Energy shovels more money into solar this week! That has got to hurt your feelings!
Clean Power Finance also announced an equity investment from Duke Energy, one of the biggest coal plant owners in the country. This is the second equity investment from a major utility and another sign that traditional energy is trying to get into solar. There is leak in your dam!:)
Duke Energy, like GE, is a notorious political suckup. They don't even mind wasting a few million on alternative energy pipedreams as long as it buys them favor with the left. Kinda like Buffett complaining that he's not taxed enough. It keeps the union goons and Occupy trash off his lawn. Meanwhile, he continues to employ an army of accountants and lawyers to keep his taxes as low as possible.
