    So thank you.

    If government has to subsidize it, it's not cost effective, it's not efficient, and it's not Constitutional.

    That's three "no's".

    How many more does anyone need?
    There it is. Some folks are so blinded by the propaganda, that they can't see the trees for the forest.

    This has been said before.

    Is English not your first language?
    The government spends money on R&D, because the private sector is purdy much sure that, 1) there's no real market and, 2) it won't work as well as some folks think.

    Does common sense exist in your thought patterns? How old are you?

    Wow, self-diagnosis much?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I'm 33 and I've been working in R&D for the past decade plus, so I know a hell of a lot more about it than you do. You're so ignorant on the subject, you don't even know enough to know what you don't know.

    If you read the rest of the sentence you would've realized I can't talk about it because of non-disclosure agreements, not because I don't have time to talk about it.



    I'm not even going to bother answering that question. You have proven so many times in this thread that you don't know the first thing about this subject, so I'm done proving to you how full of crap you are.
    Oh yeah, right, that's it!!! You got all the answers; you just can't tell us about it, right now. Hey! I get it, dude!

    There isn't a single person that does R&D work that CAN talk to you. Because NDAs are an industry standard.

    Tell us all about it, bro. It's not like solar panels are some state secret.

    And what was a stupid idea, condidering the energy needs of the nation in 1990 is three times as stupid today.

    The area of the collectors needed would be something the area of Massachusetts, I recall.

    Just think of what putting an area in the desert in permanent shade will do to the ecosystem of a large area of the Southwest United States.

    Just think of the shear impossibility of moving that electricity to Portland, Maine.

    Just think.

    That's the thing with all these "green" energy sources, if they are so competitive then they would already be driving coal fired plants out of business.

    It's not ready yet.
    The market is still a niche by and large.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Do you not understand what an NDA is?

    I can talk about the subject in general terms, as I've been doing. Beyond that, if you feel like you need to bone up on solar panels, I recommend Google.
