Chevy has also begun testing on an all electric car. Look up the chevy volt. It's been spotted as a test mule using the malibu chassis, which obviously is just for testing. They say they'll have it out by 2010 I think.

Either way, most of the solar stations don't get ANYTHING from the government, and do it for their own profit. The one built in NM was paid for by investors. You know why? Because they work. And they know that eventually, all their money will be profit (other than the usual maintenance).

How can you say solar panels don't work Is pixie dust keeping the space station and satellites powered? It sure isn't gas, and I'm sure they have the panels up for a reason. There are more and more solar plants being built for a reason. The reason is, it works, and doesn't require anything but the sun.

Do I believe they'll ever be able to support ALL the power requirements of the lovely human race? Hell no. But I don't think we should be sitting around burning ---- for power forever either. Put the deserts to use. Nobody wants to live there.

Fat women need to be on treadmills generating power, and their farts used for methane powered generators.
those satelittes use less power than your computer...

im not "against" solar power, but i am against solar power subsidies

The way I see things with solar power is, the government should be installing the panels on state/federal buildings rather than subsidizing private business. This way they are increasing demand, hopefully allowing prices to drop, and thus allowing more "average" people to buy into solar power. At least then they are not just going completely into debt but building equity by making an "investment". If government is going to increase in size, it should at least do so in a logical, capitalistic manner.

Where does the "they use less power than your computer" information come from? I highly doubt they are beaming information to and from space, and keeping their computers running, for under 400w.

I can agree with you on being against solar power subsidies since eventually whoever received the subsidies will be making nearly pure profit, but it's for a good cause. The gov't should give "credit" to these companies that are to be repaid when the stations reach their profitable point, IMO. My "hometown" in wisconsin is setting up 120 wind generators, bitches are huge and I'm not sure how well they hold up to tornados. There's also "solar satellites" that could beam power back to earth, and always be facing the sun, however that's another thing that's not very cost efficient right now.

I'm all for them now. Solar panel efficiency is increasing, it's 0 pollution, "free" power, and the country will be slightly less dependant on fuels.

There's somewhere in California, can't remember all the details, but the state is covering tons of their buildings in solar panels to decrease loads on the grid. I think that eventually, as prices drop and efficiency increases, it would be "wise" to cover roofs in panels. Like I said, i doubt it'll ever get to the point of replacing current power generation utilities, but it will definitely help to lower energy requirements from them.

As they (slowly) become more widely used, prices will drop on panels, development into panels will increase, and they someday become in reach of normal people.
