Solar energy DOA -- What goes around comes around by Walt Barrett

Solar Energy DOA – What Goes Around Comes Around by Walt Barrett
I have studied solar energy since 1950, and have found that it is a fairly simple and practical science in most cases, like home heating and hot water heating. However, it does get more complicated which translates into expensive when used to make electricity.
I actually went into the solar hot water and heating business in 1973, and hung on until 1983. I would describe the business as only a fair performer, and it took massive income tax credits just to put the business on break even basis. I sold all of my manufacturing equipment and walked away in disgust. We were only one among hundreds of US companies that did exactly the same, and some of them had plenty of money, and could have afforded to hang in. Solar Heating and hot water systems have failed to become a mass market product. We have had thirty-six years to benefit from the lessons of the 1973 energy crisis, but it would appear that we have not learned a thing.
I really made a big mistake by believing that solar was going to be the next big thing when I decided to go into to solar energy business in 1973. I had also considered going into the computer manufacturing business instead. I had been studying electronics since the late nineteen forties, and had both military electronics training, and college courses under my belt. Well I chose solar instead because of all the energy shortages talk and then the actual energy crisis. Well that was a huge mistake, and by 1983, I was totally convinced of that.
If this sounds like sour grapes, it probably is. Oh well, we all make mistakes.
Now why has the solar energy business failed to really take hold in the USA?
I will give you my honest opinion.

Greatly Expanded Green Automotive Service Business Opportunity by Walt Barrett

Your Big Chance For Low Dollar Business Green Ownership by Walt Barrett

A Complete Green Automotive services program
Last night we came across a young lady whose car refused to start at a lonely parking lot in the city. It appeared that the battery was dead. A quick inspection showed that the battery terminals had not been cleaned in years. Luckily we had some tools with us and after quickly removed the terminals and cleaning them as best we could, we put them back on and easily started the vehicle in spit of the fact that the battery obviously still needed maintenance and a good charging. After inspecting the alternator belt etc. we sent her on her way with an admonition to get the proper maintenance performed on her vehicle. Do you have any idea how many times this happens every day all over the world. The battery it seems is one of the most neglected items on a motor vehicle.This is why you will succeed if you decide to join our new world-wide complete motor vehicle maintenance organization. Please read our proposal to you below.Saturday, April 25, 2009Walt Barrett’s Global Automotive Maintenance Services news letter We have decided to publish the first issue of our news letter on this blog so that we can inform as many people as possible about our impending large scale business expansion.
