There was an article http://www.wsj.com/articles/high-tech-solar-projects-fail-to-deliver-1434138485 a coupla days ago about some huge project in Kollyfawnya, solar thermal set-up, that is only producing 40% of the design output due to unforeseen issues.

" The $2.2 billion Ivanpah solar power project in California’s Mojave Desert is supposed to be generating more than a million megawatt-hours of electricity each year. But 15 months after starting up, the plant is producing just 40% of that, according to data from the U.S. Energy Department."

Seems like a $2.2B 60% failure was not a very good "investment." Maybe could have started off a bit smaller and only pissed away a bil or two? But it's only gummint money, so who's counting...

BIG oops! 5kw. Though the 5mw system would be very nice to have if it was the same price. Then again I probably don't have the room for it. I have only 42 acres.

Well, let's see. 5 square meters per kW, so about 25,000 square meters for 5 MW. Around 4000 square meters per acre, looks like you could easily fit 5MW on ten acres. I wonder if you could get-r-done for $15 million?
