Friday, Oct. 19, 2007 | Regarding: “Go Solar Over Sunrise, Report Says.” After reading about the so-called report that says we can provide for our future energy needs with a massive solar program, I have to wonder what report writer Bill Powers is smoking.

Powers is proposing thousands of new megawatts of solar in just three short years. And if the unplanned, unsighted and unfunded solar farms or local mini power plants aren’t built in that short window of time, the plan would require local homeowners and small businesses to install (at their expense) hundreds of solar systems every day between now and 2012. It’s impossible and totally unpractical.
