The dirty little secret about wind and solar power, is that they simply don't do much. We've put billions of $$$ into it in the US, but the amount of power we get from it is pathetic.

"If wishes were fishes we'd have some fried. If wishes were horses, then beggars could ride", my Grandma used to say. Very true with wind and solar power. There are some places with enough wind or sun to make sense using it, but for most of us, it's a lot of hype like it's somehow able to replace our traditional energy generating methods.

And that is a BIG FAT LIE that you seldom hear mentioned in the media.

If you want to save money on power, and still fold, get an Ivy Bridge cpu. They have versions of it that are both powerful for folding, and run on very little power. Do only cpu folding projects.
