    I think the potential is there for growth in the market. What are some thoughts on recent activity and immediate growth?

      I have read good things for the swimming pool industry and I have heard for the military the reliability is nil.

      The swimming pool industry combines solar with gas for the best possible solution.

      If technology can perfect this, if the aesthetics are maintained, there could be great growth.  It must first become standard for the swimming pool industry and it is not there yet - use that as your gauge.

      There is. But full potential exploitation of solar energy is a question mark?

      In Texas, we have a solar panel field that will power 90,000 homes. Our friends bought a place out around our area and they run their entire home on solar panels and a backup generator for emergencies.  That was 20+ years ago.  We are looking into going solar on our water well and our gate.

      1. There would be beter potential In bonds and stocks for private and public water companies. I believe that's going to be the next Oil.

      2. As electrical storage devices become  beter and beter and the cost drops, you will see Solar as much more feesable and a good return, but buy in positions as early, are much beter than late!

      excelent idea, buy in now

    I keep waiting for more of the giant mirror farms in the deserts.  Seems like such a no brainer, and the technology will get better and better.

    With rising costs of energy bills,there is a great potential in solar power. Hopefully they get better and more affordable.

    I noticed at the harbor the other day, the boat lifts are powered by solar - this makes sense.

    When will we see a solar boat?  No sail, no motor just solar power - I want one!

    Has anyone really built a solar panel before - how easy or how difficult it was doing so? I always thought it's easier to just buy it but perhaps it's costly and you can save a lot of money just doing it yourself.
