Whoa, Cohen! A "Chemist by training", as in scientist or meth lab mogul? Not very scientific to say:"My arithmetic says that taxpayers like me and you paid $16 million for each of those jobs. It is one thing if those jobs were permanent or produced more than the promised 110 megawatts of power. But the track record of solar start-ups like Solyndra points to bankruptcy in short order. Besides, how many watts are produced when no sun shines in Nevada?"
Really? This particular company has been investing in molten salt storage. You CAN produce watts when no sun is shining with this technology. You can add storage to this technology also. If you really must do "math" try the statement that this site will put out enough power for an average of 75,000 homes. If this is true then 110,000,000 watts divided by 75,000 would give one close to 1500 watts peak generation per home during peak hours. A 737 million dollar paycheck could install that 1500 watts on about 80 to 81 thousand homes roofs. A little more efficient when the power is generated where it will be used.
