"The utility says that by 2016, its solar centers will be capable of generating enough electricity for 40,000 average residential customers for a year."

Why not put a solar PV system on the roofs of 40,000 homes and leave the land for the large array plants alone? Could it be that PNM doesn't want to partner with individual homeowners for extra energy during peak usage times of the day? Yeah, like the majority of electric utilities, their business model is based on increasing electric rates and then expanding generation and delivery assets. Now they ask the ratepayers to "conserve" energy and still ask for rate increases. Go to www.dsireusa.org and see what energy efficiency programs are available for your home.

Well budding homosexual, you would know more about that than solar, right? "Sucks", "Buttmunch", yeah you like that don't you, yeah. Anything competent about solar, anything? Didn't think so. Do you think this crap up while taking that drive along Long Lake? It sucks to be you.

If solar was so magnificent, we'd all be using it. It's not, so we're not. Nuff said.

WHO's WE know nothing? Many people use it now and many more will in the future. You're standing in the Freeway squid, you'll figure it out when you get run over.

But nobody is using it now, despite your campaign to shove it down everyone's throats. I also suspect that "many more will in the future" will be riding around on spaceships too, but the technology ain't there yet.

That's another uninformed lie on YOUR part. It's interesting YOU think in terms of "ramming something down someone's throat". That's another uninformed lie on YOUR part. There's an interest list right now, for 250K you can take a trip into space. I have supplied valid information about energy efficiency programs, www.dsireusa.org . This site has information in each State of the Union on many programs. Many of those programs are for low interest loans to add insulation and double, triple pane windows to one's home, energy star appliances and other energy saving features not to do with solar PV. When you finally extract your head from it's perch, you can begin to heal from your cranial rectidus. Educate yourself before you open your blow hole and say more stupid things.

<<< Lying, uninformed hypocrite. P.P. doesn't have a reference to compare ANY of his stupid posts on. Tokes up on Long Lake and dreams of a "better" day. Pays more for electricity and wants big brother to watch how much electricity he uses every month. Says stupid things like, "Nobody uses solar...." and yet there is 16 Giga watts of electricity generated each day in the U.S. from alternative energy sources, wind, solar PV, Concentrated solar. As the National grid is a use as power is generated system still, there are a LOT of somebodies using solar and other forms of alternative energy every day. If P.P. was actually honest, he would know that the odds are a portion of the electricity he uses to post stupidity is supplied, by alternative energy generation sources.
