Great initiative to build 1000000 homes with solar panels. This is a place that will be more livable without coal.
After reading 2 3 articles I figure out the big problem of the utilities with solar energy.
Step 1 When a home owner install a solar pannel, result utilities lose one client.
Step 2 Less cash flow for utilities means higher price for the remaining clients.
Step 3 Higher price means more people will desire and install solar pannels.
Then go back to step 1.

Conclussion I start to understand the fervore of lobiest in the utilities purses.
To bad the history will repeat herself remmber model T and the horse and buggy.
Last year we install also 13 GW of wind energy. This means 13 less coal powered plants. Way to go. We hope china will do the same installing more renewable. They become the biggest polluters in the world. Renewable make much more sens for the quality of life of e

Solar is one of the few options where homeowners can make a dent in their electrical bill. In this article the installations of solar panels is compared with home renovations and with buying a car. The solar wins by far being the only one that help the budget of the family. I want to add that the solar investment is very low maintenance being made by nonmoving parts.
I was glad to see the other day one Nissan Leaf in Waxhaw driving. Hope in couple of ears will see man more here. I also look to some websites and I saw California is a little more advanced in renewable energy. I saw even the utilities provide incentives and financing for solar project. Is no wonder that they already have thousands of homes with solar panels and many more electrical cars. I am an optimist I know will will do better. It make more sens to preserve our planet.
I just unload a big batch of wood from Oak island. The wood was previously used for scaffolding a exterior paint job. I will start building shortly. My goal will be a 100% recycle wood or materials tree house.
The tree house could have a dimension 8 by 8 ft with circular stairs.
This article talks about a VW golf that get almost 73 miles per gallon in European testing mode. To bad we can not get this car here. I think will be excellent for the environment.

I still think an electrical car is a more ecologically sound idea but still this numbers are pretty impressive.
I saw an excellent article in CNN money even if we has some sound bankruptcies in the solar energy, the industry is roaring back to life almost 3.3 GW/h of energy created this is almost 500000 homes powered by solar panels in US. I think this is great news. I saw the article focused almost exclusively about house power that is much cheaper than gasoline for cars. I think if the electrical cars will take of the savings will be way more profound and faster. The gasoline energy is way more expensive than the home power.
