Comments:in these troubled times of rising fuel prices, everything else follows! here in north Florida we are at a crossroads. we have a lot of land not being put to any use? i propose that we boost this rural communities economy by utilizing our greatest natural & renewable resource, the sun! I've found a source of CHEAP solar panel's, which would not only supply power to the community but jobs as well! installation, maintenance & management, that could lead to a surplus of electrical power & grow not only statewide but nationwide, reducing the need for dirty fuel costs? I'm hopeful that our state will consider this as opposed to our current fossil fuel path? once we reduce our need for oil to produce electricity, I'm sure that we can bring down the price, since demand will not be on oil or coal, but on our truly NATURAL resource here in the SUNSHINE STATE!!! we as a state should set the example for others to follow, incorporating solar into all new homes being constructed today, as well as solar farms, fields of panels, where nothing grows but power, electric power! we may be able to supply most of the power for our state as well as sell off power to other states, at a cheaper rate! everyone wins!!! i myself had one of the first solar hot water heaters on long island, it lasted 30 years & i replaced it myself & add a 1/2 bath myself before moving here for health reasons, lucky i did! in new york the doctors would have never look in my eye for cancer, now i only have one eye, but I'm alive & hoping to start a solar business here, because Florida gave me a second chance at life, I'd like to return the favor & get myself back on my feet & back to work, this time selling something i really believe in, while reliving one burden we should not have to bear, the rising cost of electricity & the helplessness we all feel, when we see the cost added to our bill because of rising fuel costs?
