The first of three solar panel carports was dedicated here in Las Vegas the other day. They also include a recharging station for electric cars. The carports supply about 30 per cent of the electricity for an adjacent building. The projects are being paid with a $1.2 million dollar HUD taxpayer grant and a $414,000.00 dollar rebate check from NV Energy's rate-payers. The three projects combined will save $28,000.00 per year over the 30 year life span of the solar panels. So, over the life of the panels, the projects save $840,000.00 dollars. What a deal! How does one reconcile favoring lowering the debt while being pro-Green Energy? Who in the real business world would buy and install these panels without taxpayer subsidy?
