Braidwood Nuclear Generating Station: 2,330 Mega Watts produced. 4457 acres of land including it's cooling lake. Built on am old stripe mine and waste farm land. Seems much more efficient and environmentally sound than tearing apart 285,000 acres to produce power in a much less efficient way! What a waste of money!

When it comes to streamlining any kind of development the Federal Government is like a boat anchor. Their specialty? Red tape.


China has got to love these folks in the Obama administration, after all the solar panels being installed now were made in China, same place that has donations coming into the O's campaign charge account.
At a seminar I attended several years ago, if you produce the same power that is generated from one of the largest wind farms in the United States located in Washington State,and did it with Solar panels, the grid would be bigger than Los Angeles county, now thats real and renewable.....cheeeeeez!what a country.

We have to start somewhere. We can't continue to rely on only coal and oil.

As for those panels being produced in China . . . one reason. No research and development in the U.S.

Why not?

Anyone even vaguely familiar with the NSA facility being built in Draper, Utah understands the futility of making a profit on a contract with Uncle Sam. When it comes to helping small businesses the federal government can be compared with thugs in a dark alley waiting for their next victim.
