Wow, I saw this on the BBC web site, and thought I'd share it.
This BBC article discusses how two US companies will be given a large amount of money to help jump-start our solar industry. The money that will be given to these two companies will come from a government stimulus find that is designed to boost the economy during the recession, one of which will use the money to create the world's largest parabolic trough plant as well as the first solar plant in the US with molten salt thermal energy storage.
This initiative will not only provide jobs, but it will provide energy from the sun to power over 70,000 homes WHILE cutting carbon dioxide emissions.
This is good news!
