  • I am about to make a suggestion that, I fear, will be regarded as wildly radical, namely, to make hay while the sun shines. When the sun is not shining, use your own human power or relax and go to sleep. Stored energy should be reserved for dire emergencies. Production deadlines are NOT dire emergencies. The urgency of capitalism is something I shall not be sorry to see go along...

  • Hello Everyone, I am a long time member of the Energy Resources Yahoo group. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/energyresources/info One of the frequent posters writes, “The government subsidies (call them what you will) are critical to what is happening with these systems (solar anyhow) and without this largesse, they go down.” Is this true? I wonder if anyone has an idea...

  • They need to answer the same question that we ask the producers of photovoltaic solar installations. How much photovoltaic solar energy (PV) is required for each of the following steps: 1. Manufacture of (a) the PV installation (b) the Tesla batteries needed for that installation 2. Maintenance of a and b and replacement in due time 3. Maintaining our stores of all materials 4...

  • Hi Folks, I can’t resist chiming in here: The wording of my subject line suggests a thousand-page book; but, I have only one small comment. Although I consider myself a devout atheist, my faith in evolution is boundless. What disturbs me is the growing number of peer-reviewed papers that leave planned economies and wealth sharing out of account despite the huge portion of our...

  • Correct. I have no proof but I would say that there is more solar used in the oil and gas industry than on residential housing in Texas.

  • Actually reliant and green mountain are both owned by NRG and have the same buy back agreement at full retail price up to a limit. What you said is true of most providers but reliant is actually one of the good guys in this regard as is NRG in whole.

  • Hello Everyone, This is a great idea whose time has come, provided only two conditions are met: (1) The energy returned by these panels is greater than the energy expenses of building, maintaining, and replacing the panels while maintaining the stockpiles of materials employed in their construction and maintenance at a steady-state by aggressive recycling without otherwise...

  • If anyone is going to bring any amount of what we call Blue Dow, namely, the blue Styrofoam sheets manufactured by Dow Chemical or Dow-Corning that are used for insulation especially in the Northeast portion of the US and other colder states and is sold in ½”, ¾”, and 1” thicknesses at Home Depot and Lowes, please say so in this forum. I am interested not to merely recycle...
