Solar Shakeout Continues: Stirling Energy Systems Files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy via @reworld

While it is true that this technology is too expensive for short term investors, it is not totally without merit if the maintenance issues are cleared up. Instead, it could be a long term solution to high energy states such as Arizona and Oklahoma, and perhaps Texas. In such states, the longer hotter summers make this technology work better, and if Warren Buffet were to see the effacy of such a venture, he could eventually cash in a large value for a reasonable price, since it would pay back in about 10 years, and continue working for another 10 years, making the long term very promising. The trouble is getting enough area to work with, without harming air traffic via reflection blindness, and such oddities of liability that might come from such extraordinary concentrations in rural areas.
