If you throw enough government money and subsidies into an industry, it will take off, but it may not be sustainable (no pun intended). PV is a long way from grid parity and the payback periods are off-the-chart long unless federal and state subsidies are included. Whatever happened to ethanol? Wasn't that supposed to help with energy consumption? So many places to toss tax dollars!
