Solar power: A negative correlation

The Washington Post discusses a new "Clean Energy" program in Ontario, Canada, modeled on one in Europe, to subsidize homeowners who put solar panels on their roof. It never quite mentions that the sun only shines in Toronto for approximately 37 minutes per year. In contrast, the sun shines all the time in, say, Las Vegas or San Antonio, but who wants some hippie-dippie solar power scheme there? I suspect that there is a negative correlation between the political popularity of solar power in a particular locale and its physicality practicality.

Solar Power said...

Actually development of solar power usage is very important in our days, because people need to find some clean source of energy. And solar power is exactly harmless, natural and big source. Just people should learn how to use it effectively and of course we must persuade commercial aims and it should be affordable for all people.
