LENR vs Solar/Wind, and emerging Green Technologies.

  • Curbina it is not surprising that 80% subsidy makes everything very attractive. When Ontario they subsidised electric cars by 14k we had waiting lists.

    Luckily not all countries have that so manufactures have to improve PV to make them competitive against fossils.

    Well, asking for the subsidy is a bureaucratic nightmare so many people do this with their own money, it just helped many more people realize that Solar was very practical and you can kiss the grid good bye for ever with a well designed project and never look back.

    I certainly Hope to see LENR helping humans to blossom, and I'm here to help it happen.

  • Curbina what is the warranty on solar panels? Do they have performance guarantee and for how long? Not sure about your locale but in Canada I do not see how I am going to recover full price of the panels during my relatively short life.

    Well I often forget that I live in a privileged area from the solar energy point of view, so forgive me my enthusiasm. However I have read online of successful solar off grid users as far as Alaska, they have to be very energy budget conscious and have a small windmill too.

  • Curbina in remote areas you should always include one time cost associated with connection to the grid which can be comparable with entire solar install. I mean 4 zero figures. Plus power supply is not reliable so you need to install additional backup. I live in the city and I believe electricity must go up x3 before I consider paying full price of solar out of pocket. Criminal decision of my government to pay up to 80 cents per kw for the energy home solar generates provided initial boost but like m any other stupid programs form the government, except hot fusion, didn't last long.

    In UK (high fuel price) most people reckon EVs will be competitive without subsidy before 2025.


    The whole PV / EV thing is a great example of how govt subsidies and regulation can switch round even an industry as complex and traditional as automobiles.


    Look at the enormous research effort going into PV + batteries - and how it has paid off with spectacular price decreases and performance advantages.


    We are now at the end of the easy performance gains for PV (unless something new works out, which it may) but batteries are a much more difficult thing to crack and we have a lot of performance improvement there still in the pipeline.


    Exciting times.

  • It is exciting. Not sure if the projections are correct. You need to include possible x2 electricity price increase due to the need to upgrade infrastructure. I don't think that weather in UK or Canada will allow for charging your EV from typical size roof.

    Longevity of the panels is another developing story. I am not aware of any statistics here but recent Walmart vs Tesla suit over 7 roof fires is an indicator that not everything is so shiny with PVs

  • Just ate my second Impossible foods burger. This time at Burger King. For reference, I am a burger lover. Also been eating meatless "burgers" like Boca, and the Morningstar veggie patties for many years. The Impossible Whopper was as tasty, and meat-like (including texture) as any burger I have ever eaten. They must have changed the formula since last time I ate one, because this tasted even better. Could not get over how similar it was to hamburger meat. And it far surpasses any of the other meatless burgers.


    Hard to mention a food item, and transformative in the same sentence, but this may just be that. The ingredients are dirt cheap (soy basically), so once the competition kicks into gear, the price should come down, and different cuts of "meat" hit the market.

    Have you seen the backlash to vegetable meat imitations?
