Meet the Idaho White Progressives trying to steal another state for the Marxists.

This is what happens to coddled children convinced they are victims of God knows what, or white guilt, take your pick, Idaho of all places.

The progs in Bozeman, MT built a solar array covering 2.3 acres, cost over a million dollars, and provides enough energy to power (according to them) 54 homes.  Let's see, even if their numbers are correct (which they are NOT, since there were many days this winter when they were covered with snow) that will be an average of $308/mo. per home over the 5 year life span of this type of panel - about $210% of what the average home pays for traditional electrical power.

So it will take about 100 million to provide enough power for one house hold.

Monet well spent.

200 million, remember 100 million will go under the table and not be accounted for.
