There is no such thing as “fossil fuel friendly”. There is economical. And then there is expensive. We’d all love to buy a solar system that would put us in the black after 5 or so years, but that’s just not the case for the majority of the country. Maybe in 15–20 years we can figure out how to make solar more efficient so more of us find it economically acceptable. But until that time, natural gas and coal will be the primary drivers of electrical generation.
