You Pay 75% So He Can Save 40%

In Illinois, Don Dodson reports on a car wash owner who's allowed taxpayers to subsidize 75% of the costs of setting up a solar-powered gadget that saves him 40% on electric bills:

In the long run, car washer Richard Nevels says, it'll all work out to an overall savings. That's assuming he's in business for the long run--and I hope he is. Now let's see how he passes that savings on to his community.

This web site is not opposed to ventures like Nevels', but we would like to see more of the subsidies coming from people who believe in solar technology, rather than being gouged out of unbelievers. We would like to see those who believe in solar power sell it to the rest of the world.
