How are Solar and Oil connected? How can we start relaying the importance of Solar toward our National Security, Energy Security, and Energy Independence?

– Coal is extremely Oil-energy intensive to mine, process, transport, burn, and dispose of. Thus, as the price of oil increases, so does the cost of coal-produced electricity.

– Natural Gas is extremely Oil-energy intensive to extract, process, transport, and burn. Thus, as the price of oil increases, so does the cost of natural-gas-produced electricity.

– Nuclear Fuel is extremely Oil-energy intensive to mine, process, transport and secure. The building of a Nuclear Power Plant is extremely Oil energy intensive. Thus, as the price of oil increases, so does the cost of nuclear-produced electricity.

– The Sun rises every day on its own and requires no Oil burning to do so . Thus, as the price of Oil increases, the cost of your solar-produced electricity will not increase. The only cost of your solar-generated electricity is the one time up-front cost of the system. Your electricity is no longer tied to the price of Oil. Your electricity purchases are no longer supporting the regimes of Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Venezuela. You’ve just boosted the National Security of the United States. Thank you.

Think about this and then pass it on.
