We don't have to agree on anything to be kind to each other. TobyMac#Speaklife
You guys killed on thread already with your bickering and personal attacks on each other. If you keep it up the Pilot is going to decide these forums are just not worth the trouble. It sure would be nice to read some competing viewpoints without the BS.
Sign me out as not exactly perfect but trying.
Just trying to prove my point about being told to "google" something. I retract any inferred character assassination of Fred Flintstone.
Uh, if you had bothered to research the link you could have proven to yourself that this is the price without any rebates. Again, are you all talking points or do you just keep repeating the same line like a childs string doll?
See Mark, it is not that hard. Scott has provided a link to the source so that every one of us can read and decide if this is valid information.
With batteries and inverters or a stand alone 12V system? Where?
I give you;
Sally Jenkins described the reprehensible actions of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice as “going all Flintstone on his wife” in her July 29 Sports column, “Provoking debate, and disgust .
I looked in the the Yampa Valley collective thing for the solar farm in Craig, and lets just say that their "return on investment" was lacking.
It is a fact that we are not going to get off of coal at natural gas for electricity any time soon and definitely not in my lifetime. Does that mean that the effort to find other solutions in not worth while?
When NASA launched John Glenn into orbit that was pure fantasy with no payback in sight but somehow that technology turned into Superbowl Sunday, Weather satellites and Satelite phones that work anywhere on Earth. Pretty good payback for a fantasy.
Investing in alternative energy should be viewed in the same light. There might not be a payback in sight today, but without the investment we will never know what we missed out on. The final answer might be solar, wind, fission, fusion or more of the same but looking for alternatives is "always" the better choice and whether you like it or not, Gov't subsidies have always been one of the fastest vehicles for breeding new technology that does not pay for itself yet.
Did not ask for a lesson in using google. I am pretty sure I could prove that Fred Flintstone is a terrorist or that my car could get 1000 MPG if I wanted to.
What I asked for specifically was the hard facts, links, authors or papers that you are reading to come up with your cost comparisons. Your numbers simply do not match with the sources I find with my "google" search.
I understand that our political opinions are different. What I asked for was where are "you" getting your information. I was not arguing with your assertions, I did not express on opinion on the issue, I merely asked what your sources were so I could educate myself more completely.
If you just have your opinion and no actual facts or sources to back it up, then I guess we can all decide how useful that is.
So which is it Mark? Do you have sources or just talking points. Inquiring minds would like to know.
Uh, I asked for facts and references concerning wind/solar power generation costs and lifetime expense/profit analyis and you provide me with a laundry list of conservative taking points. This is not about your beliefs, I am asking about where you get your solar/wind cost analysis information. You know, actual facts and figures. Come on Man!
That is true, but your information seems far different than most of what I read so I would like to know where it is coming from.
