The way that Obama plans to make solar competitive with coal energy is by regulating the coal industry to the point that it becomes prohibitively expensive or simple dies. His stated objective was said to be to make coal energy too expensive to survive. (not a direct quote). Further, it is and has been apparent for some time to me that for new sources of energy to become viable will require government support because no businessman in his right mind would invest in development unless he could see profitability somewhere ahead.
