We should have built solar plants already

First, I would like to thank all of the good people who support clean energy. This is what I have worked for the past 40 years, just for people to understand that the sun works.

The sun gives us life itself; to ask for a little thing like energy from the sun is no big deal. It's people like Dan Haynes, Kevin Paglia, Doug Chaney and Ted Lauchland who will make a better, cleaner future for our kids. I can only say, keep up the good work.

Solyndra was a great idea, but had bad people in charge — greed. How would I know? I've seen it before.

And again, photovoltics, batteries, are good for homes and small business, but not the grid. The grid needs a solar plant that can store energy for a month with six hours of sun.

Steam is at 212 degrees Fahrenheit and the sun is more than 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, so collecting and storing energy is not a big deal. We have way more energy than we need — and it's free and simple to build.

These solar plants should have been built 25 years ago.
