Finally, free energy (well, sort of)

March 10, 2010

Thomas L. Friedman notes that, “Sridhar, Bloom’s co-founder and C.E.O., said his fuel cells, which can run on natural gas or biogas, can generate electricity at 8 to 10 cents a kilowatt hour, with today’s subsidies.” (emphasis mine)

Today’s subsidies?!? What is the price absent handouts? That’s what I want to know.

I cheer folks like Sridhar as long as they keep their hands out of my pocket and off my carbon footprint, which Friedman so desperately wants to tax.
