Earlier this month, Richard M Swanson had an interesting article in Science "Photovoltaics Power Up". What caught my eye, was the 2nd page, wherein he said "the PV industry installed more than 2 GW of PV power plants in Spain during 2008. Construction times for 2 GW of conventional generation would be 10 to 15 years." The Spanish, and Germans, have taken the lead in renewable energy power plants. Heck, even here in Arizona and in Nevada, the Spanish are building large scale solar facilities.
Meanwhile, here in America, it's "Drill Baby Drill" by our domestic energy corporations.
