New Wind and Solar Power Is Cheaper Than Existing Coal in Much of the U.S., Analysis Finds

"Nearly three-fourths of the country's coal-fired power plants already cost more to operate than if wind and solar power were built in the same areas to replace them, the report says."

Our customers are already reaping the financial benefits. Why wait for the utilities to make the right economic decision when you can go solar on your own?

The next money crop for farmers: Solar panels

We can debate climate change until we are blue in the face so I will save that conversation for another day. What we can't argue is the avg age of a farmer in the state of VA is right around 60 y/o. Virginia's farmland is disappearing not because of solar panels, but because the job is hard and the next generation is not filling the void left when our parents/grandparents can no longer take care of the land that feeds so many of us. It's easier to sell your land to a residential developer for a ton of money than it is to work your land for uncertain revenue yields (less than 16 cents of every dollar spent on food goes back to the farmer). Regardless of the fact that the majority of farms have areas of non tillable land (low to zero production), this land is disappearing whether you put solar panels on them or not (just look at Western Loudoun). If we give farmers the ability to harvest the sun and sell it back to the utilities for a profit we can give our farmers a steady source of revenue that they can depend on! I can assure you the numbers make sense if they didn't Dominion would not be building solar left and right throughout the state. In their most recent letter to shareholders, they even make mention that solar is the cheapest form of generated electricity in their portfolio. If we give farmers the ability to farm the sun we may just be able to save Virginia's largest most important industry!

I think we are all a little tired of this cold weather but our solar customers can warm themselves up knowing that their solar panels are reaching optimum efficiency on cold, sunny days like today!

Fun Fact: Solar is a critical source of power at McMurdo Station, the primary hub for U.S. science operations on Antarctica.

Would the Rev. Martin Luther King have supported Solar Freedom Legislation being considered by the Virginia Legislature? We think he would because it would allow all citizens in the Commonwealth to participate in the solar revolution. Here's what Ivy Main of the Power to the People blog and Sierra Club had to say at a recent FACS event.
