Use of otherwise wasted land, and use of other "Brown Fild" space for solar panels sounds like a really good idea. Where the cash payoff is also good, such locations should be used wherever other factors are good.
I wonder about them using any potential menthane gas under said projects. If they were able to do both solar and gas on one project, it would be a cool,'hat trick.'

lol.... another Scam.

Southern Sky Renewable Energy, the company that plans to install the 24,000, three-foot by five-foot panels, is also hoping to cash in. The panels are expected to generate up to 5.6 megawatts of
power by 2012, making it the largest installation in the region.

These systems have little to do with the Enviroment, it's about Money, who makes it and who pays. First you have to recruit someone that wants to have Solar Power, not hard to do today and be willing to play a game. It has nothing to do with Solar Power, thats just the cover for the real game. These systems are leased or sold on some kind of a conditional contract.

This is called a long con. The same game was played with Computer Leasing during the Dot.com bubble. If someone pitches you one of these deals, run like hell.

It works like this. You start a Solar Investment Company, one part is out selling the contracts and Installing the systems and service. The other part where the action is, you have General Partners and You sell Limited Partnerships. The LP's are recruited by stock brokers across the country. You put up $10-$20,000 and get 3-5% interest on that amount, they'll pay the interest and you think the principle will be coming back in part ownership of the company at the end of your agreement. Meanwhile all the money is being sucked away by the GP's. The company's are set up where the GP's make all the money and get all the Government Funding. Once they milk out all the Profit and Assets, 5-7 years they liquidate the company and everyone else is left holding the bag with Zero. It's a classic pyramid with a twist of Green.

"LOL" seems to be a downer type person with his own agenda. I'm sure, like every thing else somewhere, someplace there's been fraud involed with this type set up.
"LOL" however goes around making the claim that this is a fraud, but offers no/not one bit of proff. I think he's way off the mark and badly mistaken.

lol..... everybody is doing it for their health. Why not strap a Solar Panel in the back of the Homeless, Welfare Recipients and Unemployed and let them generate some power.

Yes..ass wipe alert for sure and it's you !!! This one evidently has money invested in the fossil fuel industry and tries to poo-poo everything that might put his money in danger. He has nothing to offer but negative input and most people with any intelligence at all know to ignore him. It's all a scam because he can't afford to use it or doesn't own property to install it on. Just another Troll for the oil/coal industry which should be ignored.

Spoken by someone on Solar Welfare.

Nuclear Energy is the only possibility to sustain a nation of this size and population utilizing the infrastructure we already have, All the rest is just window dressing for the dreamers and scam artists. A twenty year National plan could make us free of the dependence on OPEC once and for all. If a country the size of France can get 75 % theirs from Nuclear Fuel, we sure as hell can.

Nuclear Energy presents its own masave hard to solve problems. One of course is security.
Thanks anyway, but I'd rather have a solar field or wind turbines around the corner than a Nuke plant.

Yeah, but that's the thing. You'd need a lot of solar fields and wind turbines to power large cities. That means more deforestation for these new, cleaner energy plants as while nuclear plants can meet the energy demands. There's basically cons on both sides. Nuclear plants run risk of meltdown and the constant release of nuclear waste and as America grows and its population increases, that means will grow as well. Do you know how much wind turbines or solar fields would be needed to power a huge city like New York City, Detroit, Manhattan?

Something or someone always goofs (F***sUp) up sooner or later. Meltdowns are a one time megga disaster, and if you have one, it's going to mess up your day, like big time.
Wind farm located of the cost present their own problems, but at least you don't need to cut a lot of trees down.

Putting solar panels on toxic waste dumps is a cover-up in soooo many ways. No cleanup of carcinogenic chemicals within the dumpsite will continue to expose nearby residents to cancer-causing chemicals in their drinking water, soil and air.

Yes,we need to build children's playgrounds on top of them...../sarc We could put the dump in your yard!! What else would the land be good for ??

DragonLady, your flip remark is heartless and ignorant. Children have undeveloped immune systems and are at higher risk of getting cancers and other diseases when being exposed to carcinogenic chemicals. Best to leave land contaminated with toxic waste alone until there is cleanup.
