Pathetic is the word that comes to mind when people interpret these solar installations as some indication of economic success.  These solar projects are highly uneconomic and would vanish without the 30% federal subsidy and utility mandates. 

We force the utilities to purchase solar and then pay 30% of the bill through federal tax credits and when they install solar in record amounts we call it success?  Pathetic.  ‘Delusional’ and ‘obtuse’ also fit.

The media and solar promoters have really lost all common sense.

Juxtapose this article with the other headline article “Tucson Among Nation’s Poorest Regions” and the dots should begin to connect.
