Quick question. Your state has good sunshine, lots of open rooftops, and the cost of solar energy has been falling by 10% per year. Do you think it will take 13 years to double the 10 megawatts (MW) of installed solar power?
"…in a new report from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), Commercial Rooftop Revolution … By 2016, over 100,000 MW of unsubsidized rooftop solar will able to match grid electricity on price. Within 10 years, it will be 300,000 MW, enough to provide 10% of the nation’s electricity. This affordable solar future presents a stark challenge to traditional utility planning and a clarion call for better electricity policy."

Oh yes, we have lots of sunshine, and wind, too, here in Kansas. Both are quite viable energy sources.
