Germany Produces half of its electricity needs with solar power

P.S.  Now here’s an idea for P66:  Cover the capped, superfund cleanup site, Selby Slag, with solar panels to power refrigerated (and safer) propane tanks. It could be a two-fer.  P66 complains that refrigerated units would be more expensive to run.  Well, let the sun provide the energy and build a project that won’t wipe out Northwest Rodeo in the event of an earthquake. When the refinery is finally decommissioned, sell the solar power system to a company that could sell energy to PGE…or hook up the town of Rodeo so its residents can live happily “off the grid.”     Just a thought!
