  1. It is possibile, about your point of view, that in Italy there are little
    number of photovoltaic plants?
    In Italy the sun shin every day (more of less).
    In Italy the economic life is hard.
    In Italy there are a lot of ideas but there are not solutions.

    Please explain: Plants that manufacture PV panels, or plants that use PV?
    Florida is known as the "Sunshine State", yet there is no widespread solar
    energy use. Sure, some homes use solar to heat swimming pools, and you can
    see solar operated electric signs along the highways, but it's not
    everywhere.
    Same here. The question is, do you want the government involved, and how do
    you want the government to act? Germany has passed legislation mandating the
    use of solar energy on new construction. The resulting demand for PV panels
    has caused prices for the panels to rise everywhere. California is
    considering similar legislation.

    President Bush did speak the truth at one time during the State of the Union
    Address on 31 Jan. He said that the USA was addicted to oil, and renewable
    sources of energy must be developed. However, since his family has made its
    fortune in "big oil", I would have to regard such a statement as one that a
    drug pusher would make. There are very few programs in the USA to develop
    renewable energy, and government participation will not change as long as
    Bush is President. Whatever we learn about solar energy, we get the
    information on our own.

    True!... In Italy there's the possibility to obtain State financing of up to
    75% of
    total installation costs for solar energy production plants. The problem is
    that
    beaurocracy is always a let down in this country and added to the high costs
    that this technology still has, doesn't make the solar energy choice so
    conveniant.
    Unfortunately, there's also the political side to it. If you have someone at
    the local authority
    that can allow you through the beaurocracy process, well half the job gets
    done straight
    away, otherwise you might as well give up.
    In italy, business isn't about having the best idea or having the best
    product to sell
    but all about having the right political "friend" in the right place at the
    right time.
    I could go on and on about this specific issue but I don't wan't to get
    anyone bored.
