Solar power that won’t need subsidies

An Israeli firm, ZenithSolar, has announced a new solar dish that is 5x more efficient than existing technology and makes the cost of solar power about the same as that from fossil fuels.

Plus, the system simultaneously creates electricity and stores thermal energy and uses mirrors to increase the intensity of the sun and thus cut down on the amount of photovoltaic material needed.

Sounds like this could be a game-changer.

    Is it as cheap as fossil fuels before or after their massive government subsidies? If we cut subsidies for fossil fuels, we’d level the playing field for alternatives. OTOH, we’d have to pay more at the pump, and our politicans would surely hear about that.
