And to the extent that science based decision making, reason and progress are 'virtuous', I'll signal the shit out of all of it.
Trump is fond of saying that when there is no wind, windmills produce no power. Your TV and your lights go out!
Overlooking the extremely challenging concept of, yep,...….power storage.

You think they didn’t do the math on snow when they put this array together? You could simply wipe these down to help them produce, but there’s so little Sun this month it’s not worth it.
Do the tiniest bit of journalistic research next time.

If solar is worthless in Alaska how come some trump administration was taking credit for the new solar farm in Willow. I have no idea if there is snow on those panels. Maybe you should go check.

Well let’s see: the author is a hard leaning right wing journalese…so there is that grain of salt.
She says “ hundreds of thousands of dollars” ominous, as opposed to further into the article of “approximately a couple hundred thousand dollars” which indicates it is more likely than not to be under 200,000.00, more outrageous is the fact the that it was GRANT money used.
Couple that with this is the first winter in use, she complains about not being cleared since January 1 but makes no mention of the 36” of snow that has been cleared since November and the fact that she does not mention the cost savings comparison since installation and being on line.
I’m gonna go with Hatchet article written by a politically compromised alleged journalist that owns and operates a web blog designed to attack anything the GOP Handlers pay her to do.
