    So you're a happy utility-customer who won't disclose the name of your utility?
    I have a very strong reply that you don't want other investors to read.
    You don't have a modicum of credibility that requires refutation..
    Your days are numbered....

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Why do you keep deleting my posts on other message boards, Fascist!
    If you have the best argument, why are you so desperate to censor me?
    Your arrogance will be your downfall!

  • Did you think that solar-power makes the most sense in Sunbelt states?
    I did until I read SCTY's latest earnings report (Shareholder's Letter dated 2-18-2015).
    "California remained our largest market, and the new growth states of Connecticut, Maryland,
    Massachusetts, Nevada and New York accounted for more than 30% of new deployments
    for the first time last quarter. For the year, we deployed a total of 502 MW, or more solar than
    the entire U.S. installed in 2009—including utility-scale."
    It's clear that rooftop solar is growing much more rapidly than most investors presently
    realize. The cost of panels and installation is gradually declining. Note especially
    SCTY's impressive backlog. Less-affluent homeowners are doing d-i-y installation.
    Inexpensive home-solar kits & panels are available at Home Depot.

    If the White House smartly installs rooftop solar symbolically by July 4th this year,
    the momentum would become enormous. By the election, there could be over 20 million
    solar-roofs with most voters appreciative of President Obama's environmental sagacity.
    I don't see how the GOP can afford to let the Democrats claim credit for rooftop-solar's success
    particularly in their Southern turf. Many environmentalists are Republican or Independent as well.

    Nuclear power-plants have had too many serious accidents to be politically acceptable.
    Wind-power also has too many problems and will likely be abandoned as solar gains.
    Fossil-fuel plants are doomed by concern over greenhouse gases causing climate change.
    I doubt that any nation will continue to build them for much longer even with emissions-capture.
    Obsolete ones will probably be systematically scrapped rather than expensively upgraded as
    GXP just did for its La Cygne coal-fired station for example. Hydropower is largely exhausted.
    The Solar Age is dawning!

  • Pennsylvania dubs their state grant program the High Performance Building Incentives Program.
    Through this program, grants for home solar power systems are available for up to 10% of project costs
    or $500,000, whichever is less. Projects must achieve LEED Gold certification to qualify. (Calfinder)

  • The Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) oversees the Ohio Energy Office (OEO) which offers
    first-come-first-serve grants for the installation of thermal and photovoltaic home solar power systems.
    Projects must be serviced by one of a certain handful of investor-owned utilities in Ohio,
    whose customers pay into the Ohio Advanced Energy Fund that supports the grant program.
    Multifamily and low-income residential homes are eligible.

    For home solar electric systems, the grant amount is determined at $3.00/watt with a maximum of $25,000.
    For home solar thermal systems, the incentives vary by housing type and max out at 50% of the cost.

  • The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has established
    the Assisted Home Performance Program. It offers grants to low-income homeowners for energy
    efficiency improvements, including photovoltaics and solar water heaters. The grants for single-family
    homes max out at $5,000. Household income must not exceed 80% of the Median State Income or
    Median Area Income (by county) to qualify. New York has also passed legislation to allow each
    municipality to launch Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) initiatives,
    giving each city the power to tap into federal funds for commercial and residential owners. (Calfinder)

  • "With more than 90% of its electricity generated from renewable energy sources and goals
    to reach 95% by 2014, Costa Rica is certainly one of the greenest countries on the planet.
    It also is on track to become the world’s first carbon-free economy."
    (Costa Rica Star, Oct. 2012) Web Search "Costa Rica renewable energy"!

    Costa Rica's population is 4.8 million, of whom nearly a quarter live in the metropolitan area
    of the capital and largest city, San José. (Read more at Wikipedia. Impressive!)

  • net-generation from renewable energy sources has increased from 6.3% in 2000 to
    almost 30% in 2014.... wind, biogas, and solar combined accounted for a larger portion of
    electricity production than brown coal. While peak-generation from combined wind and solar
    reached a new all-time high of 74% in April 2014, wind power saw its best day ever on
    December 12, 2014, generating 562 GWh. Germany has been called
    "the world's first major renewable energy economy". (more at Wikipedia)

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    The metro area has over 200,000 residents, one third of the state's population.

    Must read article in Scientific American, November 2014, pp. 67-71 by David Biello.
    The gist is that rooftop solar power is a growing trend, particularly in sunny locales,
    big enough to threaten electric utilities.
    The implication for investors is that such stocks should be SOLD!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • NorthWestern Energy offers home solar power grants at a rebate-like rate of $3.00/watt up to $6,000.
    Photovoltaics is the only solar technology eligible for the grant. Funds for the grant program come out of
    a Universal System Benefits (USB) Program established by the state of Montana that requires all utilities
    to create a USB fund, which itself comes as a small charge (usually $1) on residents’ monthly utility bill.
    The grants are geared toward low-income homeowners. (Calfinder)

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The state of Minnesota offers Renewable Energy Equipment Grants for solar space heating.
    The grants are for low-income homeowners and come in varying amounts.
    However, a maximum grant amount is posted at $4,700.

    Xcel Energy also offers a grant for home solar power systems in Minnesota through its
    Renewable Development Fund (RDF). The program is not designed specifically for solar power
    or for home solar power systems. The residential sector is just one of several eligible sectors,
    including research and development.

    Why doesn't Banshee start a separate Topic about shantytowns in Costa Rica
    instead of posting pathetically cynical replies unrelated to the Topic above.
    Does Banshee have genuine empathy for poor people anywhere?
    Not only are Banshee's replies not apropos to renewable energy, they're not even
    remotely germane to SO which is Banshee's well-known deliberate tactic of
    polluting forums to interfere with others' legitimate speech-rights.

    Banshee's criminal clique ruined DUK and PPL boards through prolific SPAM-posting
    and is hacking into my computer as I write.
    Banshee-aliases are responsible for well-over 90% of Yahoo! postings.
    Banshee is just a viciously malicious, mercenary cyber-gangster!

    The truth is that Banshee's Wall Street cohort is misusing Other Peoples' Money to
    massively manipulate stocks which certainly contributes to U.S. income-inequality.
    Basically, Banshee is nothing but a sophisticated swindler by profession.
