2. 20% !

20% of their electric power requirements met by photovoltaic cell. An amazing amount and very thought provoking.

6. When anyone

 

says that the Midwest doesn't have enough sun, I always show Germany as the example. Their sun-days are fairly equal to those in the Midwest.

5. Because the government has given its citizens a full-on 20% tax deduction

for any and all use of photovoltaic and other solar uses for over the last ten years. And WE sold the photovoltaic patents to them. Always trading our innovative birthright for a mess of immediate gratification. We've been letting others worldwide bear the costs of R & D. Except for food and drugs.
