FUZZY MATH: College Spends $5 Million on Solar Energy to Save $200,000

You could go broke saving money like this:

Santa Fe Community College has just unveiled a solar array that, it says, will save the college at least $200,000 a year on its utility bills.

But the array, funded by taxpayers in a 2010 bond election, will cost $5 million…

Full story here.

A “bond election,” huh? That means this solar array was taxpayer funded.

If you’re a typical liberal administrator at a public university, then there’s no better feeling than spending other people’s money in order to feel good about yourself.

On behalf of the officials of Sante Fe Community College, I’d like to say: Thanks taxpayers!
