energy consumed minus energy used

They never talk about energy excreted. It could be that different bacteria in different people's intestines may also burn more or less energy, which wouldn't be known without studying fecal matter. But I'm not volunteering.

Your math isn't sensible. You do realize the purpose of solar subsidies is to get the industry off the ground, right? Per-megawatt cost means nothing. Going by your logic of what is good value, the very first Tesla cost millions of dollars. Never mind how much less expensive the second one was, nobody wants to buy the first one so why bother.

The less time planning, the more time programming.
