That's a lot of money for private investors.

Yes that is too much

Are there more democratic solar farms?
Solar farms where the average can invest in.

It is a good point made above that solar struggles to run machinery, stoves etc. I do think that every new house should be built with a solar panel, in the UK only some are. On the home of whisky, (Islay!!) Bowmore Distillery gives free heat to the local swimming pool rather than let it go. That is an excellent idea and if we could see more of these sorts of things happening it would be good. Unfortunately we still need back up systems for some occasions.

I am not sure if investing in a solar farm is where I want to go. Perhaps into some start up with a mega solar panel etc would be better.

When solar panel are built into the whatever material used for the the house it makes sense to use them. They also have to come down in price. With the current price is simply too expensive for every household to have panels. We had a deal here in DK that for a few years was highly attractive to have people mount solar panels but it's has now been canceled since it was too expensive the the "state"....meaning I pay for others with the panels. It's not fair.

Farms i clearly a way to go until we have cheap solar panels.

That sounds much like the deal we had in the UK too, it was also cancelled as it was too expensive for the govt or electricity companies. If every new house had to have them, that would create a demand that would reduce the price.

Farms are another way to go too.

I like wind turbines but many others see them as an eye-sore. But most properties could have a small turbine that along with solar panels would make a difference.

Maybe Bob. Small wind turbines probably don't make much power. Soon the grid need to be updated anyway when we all drive electric cars. The current grid can't handle the request for power.

Have a look at this.

Yes, I have also seen that one before. It it's silent then it could be a way to go and avoid the huge wings on normal wind turbines.

I think you have posted on that before as it rings a bell. It looks like a great idea and would surely not win as many "ugly" votes as turbines do.

I agree with you all. If it is silent and can generate enough power to compete with traditional windmills then it's really brilliant. Much less maintenance and a very simple construction.
