EcoMyths: Is residential solar power practical yet?
Kate Sackman from EcoMyths Alliance is back to tell us how technology advances and subsidies can make solar energy a reality in our homes. Also joining Kate for today's EcoMyths segment is Dick Co, managing director of the Solar Fuels Institute and an environmental chemistry professor at Argonne-Northwestern Solar Energy Research Center (ANSER). "People think [solar energy is] so far away; that the technology is not there yet. That's a myth," Co says. (Photo: AP Images).
