Burning money  

Credit:  The Recorder (Greenfield, Mass.) | 1 March 2012 ~~

Recently in your paper, you had an article about the solar power at the Rowe Elementary School. It was stated that the total cost of the solar power installation was $156,000. Rowe paid about $4,000 and we, the taxpayers, chipped in $152,000 through stimulus money. The past year it has produced 21,000 kilowatt hours of electricity for the school and has saved $3,000 of electricity.

If my math is correct, it will take 52 years before they will see a profit from this solar power. That does not sound like a good investment to me.
