Well.......how much money did we toss down the ole Crapper with this one.
I provide services to 4 large farms who have sold large acreages to the Solar Industry under O's stimulus here in Az. The deals had to be done ASAP in order to receive the tax breaks and three of the four are nearing completion now. My neighbor, a nuclear engineer and supervisor at Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, tells me the power generated by these plants will cost double that of Palo Verde......thank goodness it is mostly going to Ca. The Azimuth Project http://www.azimuthproject.org/azimut...ic+solar+power was ground farmed by Del Monte and if my calculations are correct is about 1500 acres at this point (will be about 2400 when complete). Paloma Ranch (1800 acres) is near complete, Big Horn (1600 acres) is a ways off and Wilco has been put on hold. It will be interesting to see if they pay out or become a money 'black hole'.
