Put your money where your mouth is

So you like renewable energy? This company manufactures solar photovoltaics, which convert sunlight to electricity.
"Spheral Solar(TM) Technology's first factory is expected to produce enough cells to provide 20 megawatts of power annually, which is roughly the total annual power requirement of 6,000 homes," said Mr. Woerner. "Quite frankly, we believe Spheral Solar(TM) Technology will spark substantial new demand for solar energy and we expect to support that demand by building more automated factories in the future."
Just to put this in perspective, modern nuclear power plant sites will have more than 20 MW available just for standby use (2 units, 2 diesel generators per unit at about 7MW each).
