The $30,000 system will save the school roughly $60 a month in electricity costs...
Which is about a 2.4% return before
figuring in cost-of-funds, and big
loser after figuring in cost-of-funds. (In other words, the system never
pays for itself, and the gap keeps getting bigger over time.)
It continues to amaze me how journalists can present something like that with a straight face and not comment on the absurdity of the statement.
