I wish people would stop thinking solar is a great solution - it isn't.
1) It doesn't work at night so you also need expensive storage.
2) It just about works for 8 hours a day in winter and hardly at all if its cloudy too.
3) For kw per acre or land use its hideously inefficient.
4) The cells themselves cost a fortune.
If you want decent renewable energy then wind is ok-ish , but the only sure bet is tidal. But of course as soon as the latter is mentioned then along come some bird spotters claiming that damming the Stinkingmud Estiuary would scare away the lesser spotted snot gobbler and thats the end of that.
