@Jo Nova: Rooftop solar destr­oying baseload profita­bility and proud of it

What other heavily subsi­dized industry brags about its ability to provide a product for one quarter of the time it’s needed? Vale sunny-​day-​solar!

Pick a day, an hour, and what are the chances solar will be there for you? A lot less than one in four, because last Monday’s peak was an all time record. Every day in the last year was worse.

And so much for cheap… the price when solar power in…

ALL this despite record “CO2” emissions over the
