One of the few places on earth where solar makes sense. It will still take about 10 years to be profitable, but that's far less than Japan's 15-20 years.

Florida? The Sunshine State name was bestowed as an act of geriatric irony, not as a description. In all cases, you run into the same problem as most other non-desert places do, namely, where are you going to put it that doesn't already have houses built on it?
