Exaggerate much?

Decades is plural, therefore must be a minimum of two, agreed?

Take $1000 item as a start.
Cut it by 7% per year for 20 years =$234.

How long before they're given away?

4 cents a KWh
That's closer than your previous "KwHr" attempt, but still needs work.

Try kWh, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty, it's the most commonly used version of the three correct versions, kW·h, kW h or kWh.

Now you're talking. Heating water is typically the largest component of residential energy demand of all, but it's low-grade energy (just lots of it).
Solar collectors certainly are practical and cost-effective for this very specialized application.
Tankless water heaters or at the source water heaters is the way to go there. Much less costly. Solor water heaters for pools or hot tubs work great.

I want our government to encourage the production and use of energy and fuel. Romney/Ryan agree, but Obama thinks central control is better.

The choice can't be more clear.

Our engineering instructors never worried about capitals or small letters. They would have flunked "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling" for his errors of as much as 500 million TIMES...... & "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" for his errors of 73 million TIMES, 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, & 3000 TIMES. It's still a toss-up which would have been lowest on the sub-sub-kindergarten comprehension scale.

In the style of "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling", who is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig topix AGW denier, he does not mention that:

University professors would have flunked "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling" for his errors of as much as 500 million TIMES...... AND "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" for his errors of 73 million TIMES, 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, & 3000 TIMES. It's still a toss-up which would have been lowest on the sub-sub-kindergarten comprehension scale.

Also not mentioned by "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling", is his inability to obtain a poorly earned hi skule deegreee & GET to University so he could flunk out in the first quarter.

I'm content when I type, "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling" is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig.

Hearing the song of the Loon, echoing from the lake in the rock-walled valley brings peace.

Exaggeration isn’t a crime, yet!
Meanwhile, the entire world of SCIENCE, journalism and progressivism had allowed bank-funded and corporate-run “CARBON TRADING STOCK MARKETS” to trump 3rd world fresh water relief, starvation rescue and 3rd world education for just over 26 years of insane attempts at climate CONTROL.
Science has NEVER said a crisis “WILL” happen, only that it “might” and “could” etc. Find us one single IPCC warning that is without maybes. Help, my house is on fire maybe? There isn’t a crisis worse than a climate crisis so what does it take to make the scientists say it “WILL” happen?
*Obama has not mentioned the crisis in the last two State of the Unions addresses.
*TRUTH DIGGER; Julian Assange is of course a climate change denier.
*Occupywallstreet does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded carbon trading stock markets run by corporations.
*Socialist Canada killed Y2Kyoto with a newly elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (death).
How many climate change scientists does it take to change an energy saving compact florescent light bulb?
None but they do have full consensus that it WILL change.
President Romney says; “Thanks for threatening the voter’s children with deaths by CO2 and fear mongering the votes over to my side!”

I disagree with you. topix AGW deniers don't seek goodness, they seek money for rich people. Rich people call them servants.
