40 Years and Still Ticking….
We can be SO thankful for the 1970s; the time when solar energy was just getting its start! Oh, we’re still stuck in that mindset today. Solar power in the ’70s was hideously expensive and so inefficient and unreliable as to be nearly useless, and it was viewed as a liability. And it was, kinda. Unfortunately most people these days (including those much younger than 40) still believe that. And it is just not that way anymore.
Solar energy has really matured over just the last 5 years, to where it makes economic sense now. In just a few short years, we may see the price of a big solar electric array drop BELOW the price of a coal-fired power plant! People are making money TODAY on their own solar energy systems.
I’m looking forward to what the next few years will bring!
