poor USA, according to Dennis Wade (“Neither of these technologies are viable for general use, and both have been around for decades.”) solar and wind power are highly experimented and it seems that their time is over. First: it is broadley known, that one of the biggest mistakes was made on californian projects, for not having taken into account the positions of wind turbines, second, solar power has been there for decades maybe, but their efficiency in energy production has risen the last six or five years. Biggest producer were the germans, but now are being outnumbered by chinese production plants, which are seriously threatening to take over the whole market. i wonder how long americans believe this crap, that these technologies are old, and keep underestimating the innovation potential. it is sad to see americans so behind.. you could do better you know.
