Trump Killing The Big Green Lie
« on: August 02, 2018, 10:27:43 AM »
As most of you know I retired from the alternative energy industry, almost a forced retirement because Govt got involved and screwed up the industry.
Anyway, after more than a decade of Govt interference, Trump is killing the Left's gravy train. 
Here is an email I got. What they neglect to mention, aluminum is made here and these companies are coming back to the US. :cool:


If you’ve been holding off to squeeze the most value from your budget, this PSA is
for you.

Hi there,

Over the past decade, the cost of solar energy has fallen dramatically. As of 2017,
PV installations cost just 39% of what they did back in 2010.

Solar technology is advancing rapidly, and prices keep bottoming out.

For that reason, we speak to a lot of people who are interested in solar, but are in
no real rush to buy. If prices keep getting better, why not hold out and save a bit
more money, right?

Well, that trend is coming to a halt this year. The government announced a series of
tariffs targeting solar imports, as well as a raw materials tariff on steel and
aluminum. As a result, 10 solar manufacturers have emailed us to announce price
increases from 5-22% on their product lines.

On top of that, the federal tax credit for going solar is being phased out by 2022.
Right now, when you buy a system, 30% of the total cost can be applied to a credit
to offset taxes you owe that year. By 2022, that credit will be gone, and you’ll be
stuck paying that last 30% out of pocket.

For these two reasons, we feel like we’ve hit a sweet spot in our industry before
prices start to climb again. If you’ve been holding off to squeeze the most value
from your budget, this PSA is for you.

We explain the factors behind the price increase in our latest article:

The cost of solar is rising. Here’s why.

When the government supports something, that money is not FREE.

You still pay for it in a convoluted laundering scheme.

I might consider Solar Panels if I had a "Field" for them. But on my roof, adding extra weight and complexity ? No way.

Let alone the fact I was on my damn roof SHOVELING snow off of it about four years ago.

Wind is worse. The costs are not going down, and units are already wearing out. A total scam designed to enrich China.
