Sun Queen

So how much would Hillary's solar power plan cost?
“Secretary Clinton has made a bold promise to install ‘half a billion’ new solar panels in her first term, increase total solar power capacity to 140 Gigawatts (GW), extend renewable energy subsidies, and create new incentives for renewable energy investment,” said the American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, in a new report released Friday. “Such a policy will be un-abashedly pro-solar, even if it comes at the expense of other clean energy sources.”

“On the topic of expense, promising to both extend subsidies and reach 140 GW of solar power has the potential to increase subsidy costs between $27.5 and $62 billion,” the group said. “This amount alone does not even address the enormous gap between her goal, and the projected demand for solar. The end result of such a policy will be massive government spending that does not succeed in efficiently achieving energy or environmental policy goals.”
But you would get burned for the sake of going green...
