Tell me why is it better to spend billions of dollars on government funded solar "farms" that destroy wild open spaces and will create all kinds of problems with our existing power grid by dumping large and sporadic amounts of electricity into a single point than it is to rethink solar use to a large scale small scale strategy? Let me elaborate. We have unused real estate to the tune of hundreds of thousands of acres that are usable for solar power right now. There is no development needed and the infrastructure to install solar panels and use the power produces are already in place. This real estate i speak of are the millions of south and southwest facing roof tops in every state. Large scale small scale entails installing solar panels on every one of these already suitable roofs and tying them all into the grid. This strategy solves the major problems with large scale solar farms mentioned earlier; the cost of building them, the spoiling of our empty wild lands and the power distribution problems. The real estate already exists and power would trickle into the grid in small amounts from many points rather than just one Homeowners could receive tax credits for installing their own panels or they could lease their rooftops to the utilities or receive a discounted electric rate. This solution is simple, cost effective and immediately implementable. That our so called leaders haven't thought of it illustrates their fixation on big wasteful and obscenely expensive projects that are doing nothing for us.
