Free Home Solar Panels

Jenny Said:

Why doesnt the goverment spend 50 billion dollars on solar panels on homes and save 10 million barrels of oil?

We Answered:

Because solar power is not efficient and requires back up power. Many places in the USA have only four hours of full sunlight daily on the average. Also, it wouldn't save any oil as electricity is generated mainly with coal. I am off the net with solar power and I have to run a generator twice daily in the winter to keep the batteries charged and often have to run it even in the summer. there simply is not enough space for all the panels that would be needed. One of those ideas that sounds good on the surface but is impractical.
