much. ANYONE involve in Big Solar™ is a faux environmentalist! Make a pathetic amount of power with materials produced by slave labor and child exploitation, and then dump toxic and un-recyclable solar panels in the landfill after their short useful life.
Oh yeah, and preen and pose and posture about how you are so righteous while doing all this!
Do I have all that right?
In northern climates, like where I live, solar panels produce electricity around 18% of the time–not a lot of electricity, any electricity. The vast majority of the time, they are inert.
… What is most telling is that no one bothers to shovel off the snow. Do you shovel your driveway? Yes, you need to. But utilities don’t clear snow off solar panels, as one utility executive recently admitted, because they produce so little electricity that paying to shovel them–most likely, paying high school kids–is not cost-effective. That is the ultimate proof of the futility of utility scale solar power.
