The limitations of solar energy

The Hill:
Solar energy can't survive without massive subsidies

In substantial part because of the system of "net metering" — rooftop solar customers are paid inflated prices for the excess power that they sell to the grid — those installing rooftop systems do not pay their proportionate shares of the costs of conventional capacity.

Everyone else must bear those backup costs....
There is much more.

Subsidies for wind and solar are only a part of the added cost.  There are also the costs for transmission and delivery of off-site wind and solar that add substantially to everyone's' energy bills.
