4,000 new AMERICAN Jobs.....
Not like Ole Mitt, closing American factories and moving jobs to china. The barbed wire facing inward is to keep people out. Right! :-)
Well, if you live in that area you prepare for it. Batteries. If you run off the grid and the coal pawer plant. Snow takes the lines down and you are out of power for a week.
In heavy snowfall, the solar panels still give off heat, allowing the snow to begin melting above them. Houses with solar panels will avoid roof cave ins because of the dispersion of the snow due to the heat of the panels.
Sometimes you learn the easy way, or you learn the hard way. Those that make the most noise will be the ones crying the loudest later.
It is widely known that among all the sources of alternative energy, the one with the greatest potential is solar. How could it be otherwise? Staggering amounts of solar radiation strike the Earth each day; the only trick is capturing more of it.
In a new report, the Environment America Research and Policy Center seeks to visualize and quantify this potential as it pertains to the United States. The report argues that the U.S. "has the potential to produce more than 100 times as much electricity from solar PV and concentrating solar power (CSP) installations as the nation consumes each year." It adds that every single state could generate more solar electricity than its residents currently consume.
Here's a visualization, showing states that can get 1 to 5 times their current energy needs from solar, states that can get 5 to 25 times their energy, states that can get 25 to 100 times what they're using, and states that can get over 100 times their current needs:
Working with numerous solar providers, Walmart has installed approximately 260 solar projects to date in the United States. Walmart's commercial solar deployment is now 105 MW, more than double the capacity of the next largest business. This has saved more than $5 million in energy expenses, demonstrating that Walmart can keep costs low for customers while reducing environmental impact.
Those damn liberals at Walmart!
Hundreds of private wells in southeastern Wisconsin are so polluted that their owners cannot drink the water because of high levels of molybdenum. Now, an environmental advocacy group reports a link between the contaminated wells and building and road construction sites where We Energies disposed of coal ash, which contains the metal.
In a study released Tuesday, Clean Wisconsin connected high levels of molybdenum to the nearby presence of ash disposal sites and warned that similar contamination likely exists in other regions because Wisconsin has the nation’s highest rate of reuse of coal ash.
The waste left after coal is burned can contain concentrated levels of contaminants such as metals — arsenic, chromium, lead, mercury and molybdenum.
-Are you the same markp1950 posting on the luvgaybearmen blog?
Hmmmm, I wouldn't know I don't hang out there. But apparently you do. Does you boyfriend do it with you? That is OK, it's legal now. Obama set you free to get married. I'm happy for anybody who loves somebody else. Do you belong to the gay Republicommies? Do you feel better now that you "outed" yourself? What you do behind closed doors is nobodies business but your own. Did you type that one handed? Did type between strokes? Remember finster989 thank Obama for setting you free!
Your old friend lulu said quote.
"I hope it kills you, punk."
Before she deleted it. But I saved it.
Exactly what I said. Pro life Republicommies want me dead........
GA Republicommie governor. Solar booming
SC Republicommie governor Solar ready to boom
Arizona's solar industry has had tremendous growth over the last 4 years. It is one of the sunniest states and it is experiencing one of the largest increases in solar installations in the nation.
In addition to paving the way for a strong, stable solar market and new job growth in the state, the program is designed to provide a cost-effective resource for Rocky Mountain Power and Utah ratepayers.

WHEN the Republicommies kill the economy AGAIN. ACI will be DEAD!
Long live King Solar!
But you Red States ARE buying into solar. GA and SC and more.
It won't happen immediately. It's a marathon not a sprint. Not NEAR future. But it's coming. It will really help when Jim Nelson get that cell into production...
That cell will be in production before ACI pays off it's $5B loan.... Imagine needing 1/2 as many solar panels. Bammmmm!
Google "electric locomotive" on images and you will see tons of them. What do you think that those trolly wires are for? And it will be similar for cars when they get on-the-go wireless charging working. There is already a bus line running on wireless inductive charging.
Now there is talk of South Carolina solar exploding big time! Bammmmmm! Red states going solar will be a big help! More solar less coal..... Georgia, SC. Damn! Farmers.
Watch out, the solar train is coming BIG TIME. Don't get run over!
Georgia has the fastest growing solar market in the country, spurred on by state and federal policies and a new focus on clean energy and its economic benefits to the state. Solar-related jobs in the state grew 225% last year, the Savannah Daily News reports.
Regulators last year directed Georgia Power, the state’s largest utility, to add 525 MW of solar power by 2016. That decision prompted new initiatives in the state to boost deployment.
New research finds Georgia attracted $666 million in private clean energy investment from 2009 to 2013 and will generate an additional $4.4 billion over the next decade.
