Re: “Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' Sunny Day

I’ve been passionate about solar energy since I was 13 years old and now run a successful solar business in Tucson were I employ a great group of folks and we bring millions into the state via federal contracts and international exports.

But I promise you, solar PV is not a viable energy source for on-grid applications. We are being mislead by the solar lobby. A 1 kW system will cost “somebody” about $5,000 to install and save only about $45/yr in fuel for our power company (TEP). The math is simple. The problem is that the solar lobby has successfully oversold the economics to the community. This solar subsidy will cost a lot and do very little towards global warming, energy independence, or helping our economy.

Please help me stop this particular subsidy: grid-tied solar PV. Please read my blog in which I try to explain this.
