6. Sorry / Not Practical
Solar power just doesn't cut it. I know it would be great if it did but the bottom line is that they are still allot more expensive.

The US doesn't have a monopoly on Solar power technology. As another poster mentioned, China is building 2 - 3 coal plants a week. If Solar is cheaper why don't they build them?
