Finally … diesel powered solar energy! Who says subsidies aren’t working?

How cool is this?

In early March, Bishop Hill was tipped that a German aristocrat “has figured out that the price he will be paid for the output of a solar panel is so high compared with the price he will pay for his input of normal electricity, that he is thinking of rigging up powerful arc lamps to shine on solar panels on his extensive roof.

… well, you know what’s next …

several solar power plants were generating current and feeding it into the net at night. To simulate a larger installation capacity, the operators connected diesel generators.”

Norman Leahy over at Tertium Quids asks, “What’s next; coal fired wind turbines?

Hmmm … if I could just get a federal grant, that rug and balloon thing I’ve been working on might just pay off after all.
