There Are Alternative Sources of Power

Dear Source:
I am delighted to know we are harnessing wind power. Can anyone tell me why we aren't harnessing SUN power? We have such an abundance of it here. We also have a way to save on oil–I bought a Toyota Prius last spring and more are available. The Prius takes Mafolie Road as powerfully as my Buick LeSabre. I am getting 32 mpg with the Prius and only 11 mpg with the Buick.
Filling the tank once a month instead of every ten days is wonderful – a savings for me and less dependence on oil. Let's keep the momentum going on finding alternative sources of energy.
