I wonder if SunVest gets any kind of Federal Govt. subsidy to justify their 50% cost savings? I wonder if the Taxpayers of America are actually supporting SunVest operations through special Government subsidies for the Solar industry. If so, there is No savings to the general energy bill. Let's face it, the Govt. is taxing Ameren big dollars for coal usage (cap & trade). That is the main reason for Electric rate increases. The Governments NEW energy taxes are passed on to individuals as higher energy bills. WE BLAME THE AMEREN's, BUT WE SHOULD BE BLAMING GOVERNMENT TAXATION ON OUR UTILITY COMPANIES. Statements here like "Ameren will raise your utility rates 14%" are proof that a blame for the Solar agenda can be Transferred to AMEREN. Savings to any household can only come from "other Americans" being taxed for the solar industry to justify and recoup their enormous COST to install any solar power.
