ABSTRACT
This article comments on the article "Energy Strategy: The Road Not Taken?," by Amory Lovins published in the October issue, which tried to show that providing sufficient energy by soft technology requires less investment than by a hard one. The author contradicts Mr. Lovins' computation on the needed investment to sufficient energy to the U.S. from solar power. Mr. Lovins' computation of solar collectors is far too low compared to the real cost of solar collectors needed to supply the needed energy of the US.
