Solar Savings Aren't Quite There

CONCORD - Using solar or wind power to provide electricity for your farm or small business sounds like a good idea - but it may not save you money. John Hay, UNL extension educator for energy, says the technology has improved for solar panels and small wind turbines - but the cost effectiveness just isn't there yet. Hay says the cost of systems is still quite high - while electricity remains cheap in Nebraska. Hay made his comments during the recent VIP tour of the University's Haskell Ag Lab near Concord.
