SOLAR POWER

Does the public have a clue as to how little energy is produced by the 10 acres of solar panels that Progress Energy has out on 421?! That is a large area of land that has to be stripped clean to produce only enough energy for so few homes. Anyone care to guess on how many acres it would take to power Wilmington (not including the surrounding area)! Alternative power is a wonderful idea but everyone needs to understand the COST of this alternative and if it can realisticly be done. People also need to be aware of the financial cost. This alternative energy is going to increase the cost of the bills we have to pay.
