Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, Somehow, Can’t Find a Solar Installer (Help Him Out)

In another tirade against solar, Bill O’Reilly recently said he couldn’t find anyone in Long Island to install a system on his house.

“There’s no where, no one,” explained O’Reilly. Gee, what a predicament.

Actually, as a quick Google search points out, there are more than a dozen companies installing solar electric and solar hot water systems around Long Island. And that’s not to mention the dozens of other solar companies working throughout New York State.

Unfortunately, if we can’t expect a major media figure like O’Reilly to do an easy Google search to find a solar company, how can we expect him to report fairly on the industry? As a recent compilation of Fox News clean energy coverage makes perfectly clear, the pundits railing against solar simply have no idea how the technology works. It’s time to fight back against this ignorance not by telling these pundits that solar works, but by actually showing them.

If you’re a solar company in New York, consider taking O’Reilly up on his offer and install solar on his house. If he’s serious about creating a “no spin zone,” maybe he’ll actually give the technology a fair shake.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
