THAT is a surprise.
Didn't Q say that we would be surprised to know who was speaking to us?
Just stutter a lot and look like you are disabled. You can then mix words and no one can object.
You will own nothing and be happy - eat ze bugs
Thanks for writing this. I just knew that there had to be a strategy.
The latest EIA publication on Levelized Cost is so complicated. Those economists have gone wild. They have now added battery storage. What is interesting is that they project the costs into the future and take account of two types of tax credits. There will be a phase out of credits over time. But what I find concerning is that the renewables will be built and added to the grid before these credits expire and we will be stuck with them. Another thing I noticed is how they have managed to make it look how renewables now compete nuclear and fossils fuels (which was not the case in the past).
That is insane. You should get in contact with the utility that owns them and asks them what's up.
Levelized Cost takes into account the replacement costs of an energy source. I don't know how solar and wind get rated because their efficiencies have supposedly improved with time. I should look that up.
Yes that is a great point. People get so emotional about renewable energy. They think of themselves as ecowarriors. It's been a great pysop.
wouldn't it be great if she lost
I agree with you about Levelized Cost but it is what is used to consider cost by economists (they like their formulas). So even using that formula shows the extra cost of wind and solar over time. Area is not considered in any calculation. We had this problem with solar in New Jersey. The solar warriors wanted to build solar farms but we have very limited open space in the state. We also have a very strong Preserve Farmland group that put up strong opposition. So then the state wanted to put them on brownfields (disserted manufacturing sites). Turns out that would be an environmental disaster. We have many superfund sites in this state. So that's when we came up with installing solar panels on telephone poles. We put up a lot but stopped for some reason.
There is another bad aspect to wind turbines on land - their noise.
Also what you say about area is harder to compare when considering offshore wind. .
A simple way to compare energy sources is their capacity factor. A capacity factor describes how intensely a fleet of generators is run. It is a ratio of a fleet's actual generation to its maximum potential generation (according to the Energy Information Agency, EIA). For example nuclear is 80-90%. Coal is 50-60%. Wind is 30-40%. Solar is about 20%
Another measure on cost is what is called Levelized Cost. It takes into account all the costs (initial investment and running costs). Conventional coal is 94.8 $/MWh and offshore wind is 243.2.
The EIA is a great source for some of the items you listed.
In New Jersey- there is strong opposition to offshore wind by environmental groups and fisherman.
Orsted, the world's largest offshore wind farm developer, is prepared to walk away from projects in the US unless the country's administration guarantees more support.
BTW - Orsted is a Danish company,
We all know it is about the Bushes.
Pharma doesn't like competition.
Yes the chlorine dioxide guy. RIP
I think what is meant is why is Dan not indicted in any of the cases.
We need some good news.
Looks like Bing has messed up that last site so go here and use the link in the message-
Yes. I have known about Neville since the late 90s. I have had many remarkable experiences using the techniques he describes. I was almost homeless and I used his techniques to get a nice place to rent. I was out of work and got a great, high paying job using his techniques.
Here's a great site to get many of his transcribed lectures-
Here's a YT channel that contains many of his lectures-
Here's an archive site that has docs and videos-
I remember when my boss got charged several thousand dollars to move out of NJ to PA about 15 years ago. I don't know if NJ still does that.
