“Clean energy” could become its own humor genre…
General Motors broke ground last week on a six acre solar farm that will save the taxpayer-owned carmaker $15,000 per year in electricity costs, reports the Detroit Free Press.
Given that a home rooftop solar panel system can cost on the order of $30,000, we can only imagine how much a six-acre solar farm would cost. Obviously, GM and taxpayers will never come close to recouping their investment in the farm.
As an extra comedic aspect, the solar field is an effort to green the production of the Chevy Volt. Wake us when they green the operation of the Chevy Volt.
