Solar Power Fun

A working knowledge of solar power is a valuable tool to anyone working with modern technology. Costs to produce conventional power with coal and natural gas are moving nearly in tandem with soaring oil prices. It's a prime reason why electricity prices have increased 50% in less than a decade to around 11 per kWh and will continue to rise. Utility companies face even steeper production costs they cut back on coal usage and buy credits to offset CO2 made by burning coal when carbon dioxide emissions limits are phased in during the next decade. That's why they will be eager buyers of noncarbon-emitting Solar Power.
