They opened a large PV plant, here, near Verona (Romeo, Juliet, a big
mess, you know).
They obtained a large incentive from the government and placed
themselves over good land used for horticulture. Now they produce
electricity instead of fine food (and when I say fine, it is really fine).

PV is reasonable inside city (where it will be used offsetting the use
of power transmitted on long lines) or where fuel or lines can not be
used or are impractical.
