Peel & stick solar cells for your roof? Anything that can cut down on our gas bill in the winter has got to be good.
No word yet on price or residential uses, but I guess I can wait.
I’m no expert, but to the layman’s eye, the stuff from Nanosolar looks better.
Check it out.
I’d want to see wind tunnel tests before ponying up in our neck o’ the woods. (It can get drafty occasionally.)
Solar electric cells to cut down on your GAS bill?
If you want heat, then passive solar would make more sense. PV cells are about 10% efficient but could drive spot heaters. Plus, you’d only get juice from them when the sun was shining. Even in Colorado, it’s colder at night.
Why are the real important questions not asked during this election? Why are our chosen leaders wasting our time talking about style instead of substance? Are people voting with their hearts, instead of their heads?
Let’s talk about jobs.
America has more oil in Alaska, the Gulf States and the West Coast than all the resources in the Middle East.
We have huge deposits of shale oil east of the Rockies.
Many American jobs could be created overnight; if only our elected Congressmen and Senators would allow Americans, to harvest our own resources. China is drilling for oil 80 miles off the coast of Key West!
We have many idle military bases to build refineries and electric nuclear production facilities.
We could build wind farms off many coastal areas.
Solar and Geo-Thermal energy is another possibility.
Imagine if you will the cost benefit of spending American dollars for American jobs to protect our future for our children and country.
Why are politics, standing in the way of common sense, in the elections of 2008?
JFK decided we were going to put a man on the moon and we did.
Where are the real leaders of today?
That’s cool but how exactly would I “apply” that solar panel to a traditional shingle roof?
We have how many millions of acres of commercial roof space we could use?
