Go, solar, go! This is fantastic, breaking news! But I’m sure you have all seen this breaking news plastered all over the mainstream media.
GE Predicts Solar to be cheaper than Fossil in 5 Years
GE’s goal is to get solar power price down to 15 cents per kilowatt-hour or below. The company expects the prices to decrease in three to five years. Once the price of solar goes down to that level, homeowners would choose to have a solar power system in their houses. In 2009, the average retail rate per kilowatt-hour in the United States is from 6.1 cents in Wyoming to 18.1 in Connecticut
Solar price have decreased 21% this year alone.
Say what? You haven’t seen this in the news! Really? Could it be that America’s Natural Gas Association has monopolized our media?

Be skeptical of GE. They are also promoting NG.
So they say they’re in love with the solar while they sleep with the gas??? 🙁

GE also gets paid on tax day. Taken over the media? Nah Ive only seen that Exxon Mobil Fracking commercial seven times this week. That and a really creepy Barnett Shale Pro Fracking commercial that says “Securing Our Water” is their highest priority. Securing it so they can permanently remove it from the hydrologic cycle. What’s next a commercial about “Acquiring Our Air”?
GE is investing $600 million into a solar tech.
I guess as long as their statement follows your beliefs it doesn’t matter though.
I’ve read and reread your comment and it doesn’t make any sense to me. Can you please explain? Thanks.
