I'm all for RE (Renewable Energy), but on a larger scale...not the individual house 2 house setup...the average person does not want to have there
own mini powerplant, like the solar shingles, shingles that look like normal shingles, but they are all conected and fed into your house to batteries
and whatnot, and then theres maintainence...the average person would rather just pay a monthly bill and "Let there be Light".
wind farms and wave farms are good, as well as solar cells, if scientist can improve the efficiency of solar cells, and makes them more durable...then
they could play a large roll in the future.
Maybe in a few decades our houses windows will all help in harnessing the suns power and yet still be see through, our cars will be all electric and
have several light weight batteries in them that get there power either a outlet or when your on the road it has a mini turine in the front that when
spins generates electricity, so the faster you go...the more power you use...but also the more power you generate, So could drive all the way across
country and never even think about getting low on power. Photovoltaic cells could be in the roof of your car as well, to help generate power to the
vehicles main batteries.
*end of day dream*
ya never know...it could happen.
What would you more de worried about...A terrorist flying a plane into a nuclear reactor OR a terrorist flying a plane into a wind turbine.
