Say What?

“Right now it would be cheaper to put 40-inch TVs on your roof than solar panels, which are much less complicated,” said Conrad Burke, general manager of the Wilmington, Delaware-based chemical company’s DuPont Innovalight unit...

This is a great quote but it's not true. The cheapest 42" TV I could find was $400. At 5.23 square feet a pop you'd need 13 units to cover the 69 square feet required for a kilowatt (spec sheet). This adds up to a little over $5000 which is five times higher than current factory gate panel pricing.
