lots of homes are being put up here in Michigan with solar panels. Many have also installed on their own wind mills . of those plenty end up selling energy back to the grid.

I'd prefer every home has its own solar panels rather then major corps controlling solar power plants.

I'd prefer every home has its own solar panels rather then major corps controlling solar power plants. I would too but I think we'll need both. The world uses a mind-boggling amount of energy and it's increasing fast. We need lots and lots of sources. Solar, wind, tide, converting garbage to methanol, etc.

I'd prefer every home has its own solar panels rather then major corps controlling solar power plants. Those who live in apartment complexes can not install their own solar panels, therefore if a major corp. has the mean to do it, the more the better.
