Then Paul Taylor says: "A complex economic analysis by the progressive Brookings Institute took four zero-carbon renewable electric energies (solar, wind, hydropower and nuclear), added a low-carbon natural gas fuel cohort, and compared them with various conventional fossil-fueled electric power generators."

Any one with some experience with solar PV knows it is best installed where it will be used, right on the roof of a home or business. DUH?

When will the fossil fuel industry that's 150 years old stop getting tax breaks, grants, loans and cheap land leases. Both you and the Brookings Institute are in the pockets of the fossil fuel industry.

Where the power utilities have gone to a tiered rate structure, people installing solar PV on their roofs are paying for their systems in 5 to 7 years, DUH. Taylor YOU'RE part of the problem, when can society expect YOU to be part of the solution.

Massive government subsidies for renewable electric power energies are controversial costs because it should not be governmentsÂ’ job to make wind and solar power profitable.
