Progress Energy tripled its estimate for its new nuclear power plant in
Levy County, saying Monday that the new price is$17-billion.
According to the book "A Golden Thread, 2500 Years of Solar Architecture
and Technology"( 1980, Butti & Perlin, Cheshire Books, Palo Alto), in
1941 solar water heaters outsold conventional units in Miami by two to
one. (Page 152)
The book concludes, "History offers many lessons that can smooth our
transition to this new (solar) age. The successes and failures of past
generations can help guide us in the development of solar applications.
But the most important lesson is that solar energy can be a practical
alternative to scarce fossil fuels." (Page 253)
