    I suspect the answer is not yet, as the figures to prove otherwise don't seem to be easily available. But using the sun to heat stuff up seems like it should be a pretty efficient way to generate energy. I would expect the cost of building these facilities will come down with improvements in the tech, whereas oil is only likely to keep increasing in price.

    It hasn't been yet in most of the world.

    Sure, but it should stand on it's own 2 feet like any other nascent industry with a claim to solve a problem. This area has been the subject of enormous fraud and waste in the last decade.

You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    Check out the shares of First Solar and tell me again that solar power is sustainable.

    They are not the only solar panel producer in this pickle, btw.

    Hundreds of millions of government subsidies to produce: Nothing new. No more efficiencies, no lower production costs, nothing.

    86% drop on their stock in the last year when it became clear that Obama wasn't handing them any more money.
