Yay - solar gets serious

It's about time that big power companies stopped messing around with green energy and took it seriously. Kudos to Southern California Edison for ramping up to 250 megawatts of solar power on the rooves of commercial premises (reports Green Wombat).

Solar power in itself won't supply the earth's energy needs by a huge margin (quite apart from the green impact of making the solar cells/kit in the first place), but it's a good start. Add in more and more wind turbines and wave power generators and I can see some countries getting a quarter or even a half of their power from green sources by about 2020.

Save the planet? Maybe we just will. But we need more initiatives like this one.

Bring on 2750 when money no longer has the same importance (if at all exists). Energy is sourced from the smallest of matter form and Computers have been superseded by far greater technology, which still rely on calculations of anything between 1 and 0 hey maybe the human race would have given a better position.
Time will tell, but for now Steve we will have to put up with greedy capitalist companies fake people with self attitude and governments seem to be telling the people what to do whilst they do the opposite.
What with their ridicules interest rates whilst fleecing the country due to their free stuff at tax payer’s expense, I will leave you to ponder over those thoughts whilst every site tries to make money off the backs of others in a capitalist society.
