Railroads have already figured out how to move trains with electricity. All they need is a few 3000 hp diesel engines to produce the electricity.
Solar panels and wind generators may help a little but only makes sense from a homeowners perspective, and it will have to be government subsidized of course.
Solar would work great way up north where it's dark 24 hrs a day.
Wind power will work great when the wind doesn't blow.
AC power can't be stored.
You can bet TPTB already have it figured out how to line their pockets with the kickbacks.

What is the maximum MW that wind can produce per acre? Is the land under the turbines useable for anything else, crops, grazing, etc.?

Recyling doesnt make you more green than the neighbor. What are you willing to give up to help with the problem . Everyone likes that house AC very cold. We like our gas guzzlers to move fast. For the life of me I dont understand why there is not a nuclear reactor on every lake large enough to support one. I believe natural gas is the cleanest as of now, but Im biased as im in the gas turbine industry. But you can forget solar and wind, just aint happening!

I said earlier that we can never replace fossil fuels. Instead, of wasting time and money on solar, wind, etc, we should be looking for ways to make fossil fuels more environmentally friendly. Natural gas should be considered. Solar and wind are OK as a supplement to energy, but not the solution. Electric cars in a cold climate are ridiculous!

Remember when Obama gave GE over 600M to work on solar powered energy. They couldn't make it and ended up moving to a foreign country.


Ever wonder why there are no democrats on Mount Rushmore?
