West coast is different, it's a Mediterranean climate, much less humid and the ocean in California is cold so it has a cooling effect pretty much always

SouthernParadise 1 point ago +1 / -0

Unlike the Georgia coast that gets bath water beach days. A breeze just blows around the sweat beads on your face. You need a stick of deodorant/day and at least 4 shirt changes. And don’t even think about putting a bra on. Only things that cool you off is a baby pool full of well water, and parking your ass on a central AC floor vent. I’d take it any day over California.

My son & I are going to get solar panels & batteries, plus some windmills(the small portable ones). I don't want a big solar company involved because of the cost. There's a ton of companies offering solar generator/battery kits. Are those any good? I have a 12,000 watt gas/propane generator that was GOING to be my backup, but this fuel fiasco Biden created is making me think about switching. We can live through a blackout by switching to survival mode. The main power need we have is the fridge & freezer, cellphones, alarm system, sprinklers, & tools. We could get by with a portable system, but I need someone to tell me what to watch out for, which systems to avoid, which ones are good. Every single review site I look up is run by a solar installer & screw that!

3
FliesTheFlag 3 points ago +3 / -0

Go ask the preppers they will tell you that you are gucci with that generator...as for the fuel for it they will throw a shitfit and say they got jerrycans...ask them how long it will last on those said cans and they will riot at your house because how dare you question their preparedness. You are correct those generators are good for a short time a day or a few if you have a stock of fuel but if its as bad as they claim it will be a gas generator is worthless as there will be no gas.

Likewise, drivers will be forced to adapt to new charging times, with some being asked to plug in at work during the day, while others commit to set hours at night to ensure even distribution of energy capacity.

How am I going to charge my car at work when my charger is at home? Are you telling me I won't be able to charge my car at night? I spend 50 freaking K on a commuter and I can't even charge it at home? No freaking way.

All diesel engines are about to be socked with Tier 5 emissions. You thought particulate filters and DEF was bad, you ain't seen nothing yet.

dakin116 6 points ago +6 / -0

Lmao, this is pretty much the scam with battery lawn mowers, buy the thing and it might get through your front yard. Now you need a 2nd battery that is basically the entire price of the mower to do the rest. This is assuming your yard is 1/4 acre

2
schiff_for_brains 2 points ago +2 / -0

The key is to have 2 batteries so 1 is on a quick charger while you’re using the other one. If the batteries are large enough you should be able to cut non stop, more or less.

If you live in a townhouse electric yard equipment should be fine. 1/4 acre is probably max for a push mower. Lots of people in dense suburbia and the city should be ok.

I have a pretty good sized lot for my town, and a 40v string trimmer is adequate but not great. I bought it since the battery powered chain saw, pole saw, and hedge clippers worked great. But now that my trees are all caught up on maintenance I was barely using the batteries twice a year and that’s a recipe for them going bad. I’m going to end up replacing the carb on my old gas trimmer for edging tasks and brush cutting tasks. Electric will be relegated to quick string trims and generally backup duty.

anatidaephobia 3 points ago +3 / -0

Historically the energy needs has been solved by whatever is cheapest and most easily accessible locally. If you live in a forest for instance your car should run on producer gas. Look into old reliable combustion engines which runs on almost anything and you'll have plenty of alternatives.

anatidaephobia 16 points ago +16 / -0

Watch 2000 mules, learn how they rig the elections, then make sure they can't rig it and finally, go and vote. Commiefornia has drop boxes as far as I know, fill them with trash so that the mules can't fit their fake ballots, become part of the team that counts the votes to stop the left from claiming those spots and cheat.

Take the identity of those who kick out election observers or fuck around in other ways, then shoot them while they're alone, bury 9ft deep and put dead raccoons over their bodies at 6ft depth.

Most importantly, never give up, that's how you lose. Commiefornia is a red state, it was before they started to rig elections. Look into the electors, that's 10-11% of the entire US only in Commiefornia, the biggest state of them all, no wonder the left steals it every year. It's much easier for them to do that than it is to rig elections in all 6 swing states, including Florida.

PMAGA 5 points ago +5 / -0

They used the Clinton years to thoroughly rig things in every place they had some level of control. Nixon - two landslide victories, Reagan - two landslide victories, HW Bush - landslide victory, with only the flukes Jimmy Carter and then the Ross Perot ordeal opening a path for Bill. They realized they had lost the country and had to rig fast if they wanted any hope of power in America.

A coworker mentioned how terrible nuclear is for the environment because the reactor or reactor cores don't biodegrade, leak into the surrounding terrain, and can't be recycled.

Can someone give me the counter argument? I read a comment on here a few days again stating nuclear waste could be recycled. Is that true?

We've come a long way since then. The tranny Biden hired actually did research on recycling nuclear better.

12
anatidaephobia 12 points ago +12 / -0

Problem with "renewable" sources is that their production never match the energy demand on the grid. Demand will always vary over the day, on regular workdays demand goes up daytime because of the industries, then in the afternoon when everyone gets home from work to watch TV.

It's a very predictable pattern. And the only thing that can match that demand is regulated sources, like fossil fuel, dams or geothermal. Wind is completely useless, solar has it's place for off grid households with low energy usage, but is often useless on the grid.

10
-c-i-a- 10 points ago +12 / -2

Converting the electricity to a usable form is also incredibly uneconomical and inefficient. The whole thing is a farce.

9
anatidaephobia 9 points ago +9 / -0

Yep, this is the biggest flaw with electricity. Tho in the rare case that you'll find a source that's much cheaper than anything else, the inefficiency won't be a problem. Look into Europe for instance, each country went their own way when building their power grids based on what source would be cheapest locally.

Then came the environmentalists and decided to go all in on wind and suddenly most countries grids fucked up completely.

5
lerm4comptroller 5 points ago +5 / -0

This reminds me of the people I knew that put in solar panels a couple decades back. They lived in a north-south running valley. In the deep, deep woods. Right between the coast and a mountain range. In Oregon.

And their house sat right next to a completely untouched creek that ran high and fast much of the year, so much so it even became dangerous several times. But no one was allowed to develop it and create a desperately needed electrical source for locals or even just contain it... Because of a salamander if I recall.

2
anatidaephobia 2 points ago +2 / -0

I bet that salamander somehow died because of a local wind turbine, but that's ok according to the woke left. 🤡

2
schiff_for_brains 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yep. The utility has to learn how to become the battery bank to store renewable energy while it’s abundant and transmit it out to customers when demand needs it.

Going solar without a battery bank of some kind doesn’t make much sense. But if you can create enough storage you can sell that stores energy back to the grid during peak usage and profit if your state allows it.

1
ProphetOfKek 1 point ago +1 / -0

How about the n-word that is anathema?

7
Tuggy_McTuggboat 7 points ago +7 / -0

Several reasons. The first being you still need power at night. Unless you have a ridiculous battery system, you're using grid power. That goes for day use also, btw. If you don't have a battery system, you're just offsetting your usage from grid. You can not use your power without a battery system.

Now, look into the cali problems. You have a grid that's being slowly killed by the heat island effect and a solar war between the poor and rich.

The heat island effect is what's going on, not this bullshit "climate change" excuse. Population increases, cities get bigger, heat radiation goes up, need more juice for population to be comfortable. Now, add that some retard designed their grid system compounded with "you need to go electric because muh environment," you get a completely unstable grid system. Especially when you put band-aids on a 40ish year old shit-box instead of an actual upgrade. Go read about the la oil tubes.

Now the class warfare. Because of how many people in cali got their solar panels and battery systems and what not, there's a huge decrease of paying customers to keep the grid covered in those band-aids. So, now you have people that can afford solar vs the ones that can't and, you guessed it, they're being killed financially because the power companies lost all those people, they have to pay them for the generation of power, so your neighbors savings gets directly taken from you by a huge increase in your power bill.

But, thank God you bought that tesla you can't charge.

Their progress on sustainable drought resistance - shut down plans for desalination plant.

Sadly, if I didn't have memes constantly reminding me "They hate you." in the back of my head, I likely wouldn't believe it even while experiencing all of it.

But solar power isn't the problem, and neither is oil/gas or wind - it's power policy.

50% of their power comes from natural gas. Good luck transitioning to everything electric

That's a lot of a state that has so many mountains and rivers (perfect for hydro) and so much desert with mostly sun (perfect for solar). Communism really ruins everything.

Hmmm could it have to do with the belligerent decision to just shut down all nuclear and fossil fuel power plants without any plans whatsoever to match demand with renewables. This is another Enron situation. They plan to buy power from Nevada at triple the price.

Be ungovernable. DIY offgrid solar is a thing and the only thing you need an electrician for is your panel work for your inverter and transfer switch.

If only it was this easy for a private well....

...you mean photovoltaic panels? Because that's very much not a DIY thing to build, if you want DIY go with a bunch of mirrors and a solar boiler, preferably filled with something that has a heat capacity than water.

A survival level well can be done easily if you live in the right place. This well would be perfect as no electricity is required to run it.

I have a well. The problem is that I don’t have a generator big enough to power my well. I do keep 30 gallons of well water on hand plus some bottled water.

diverscale 1 point ago +1 / -0

my smaller 3000W generator can power the well (only the well) if needed. You don't need that big of a gen. It's at the limit though when it turns on.

For fucks sake. EVERY TIME the issue with the grid not being able to support EVs is brought up in car forums, some dummy inevitably comes along and starts in about how “ACKCHYUALLY according to experts the grid is just fine and everyone should buy an EV!” And yet here we are. These stupid faggots think the world is going to run on solar panels and wind. You can’t have hydroelectric, you can’t have nuclear, natural gas is making muh CO2 so that’s right out. Oh yeah, and don’t even bother looking into alternative fuels for combustion engines, cause the future is most definitely battery powered cars made with lithium mined in China. Yeah fuck off with that nonsense.

2
Notme 2 points ago +2 / -0

Well ACKCHYUALLY , lithium isn't just mined in chyna. There is Africa and Afghanistan too. Chyna only owns the strip mines.

4
Leakedgenderfluid 4 points ago +4 / -0

Lol ain’t that the truth. I don’t even hate EVs necessarily, but the fact that nearly all lithium comes from outside the US and largely from China/Chinese controlled mines is a massive national security issue.

Californias political establishment is cutting electrical generation - cutting natural gas steam plants, forcing nuclear to go offline, forcing hydro to stop generation.

Our elites are caught up in overlapping webs of foreign money networks involved in politics and centralized control of media by the few holding companies that own 90% of all media sources in the state.

The ground is being prepared to collapse this state through negligence and corruption.

Our bread basket central valley - gone.

Our high tech aerospace and digital technology and software - gone.

Our military bases and population centers - gone.

We need America to reinvade California. Our domestic billionaires have underplayed their hand. They make their money off of government or they make their money off of the dismantling of California.

You write off California, you can write off this country all the way East to a few choke points and rivers in the Rocky Mountains.

California has set out to become a leader in the green transition, aiming to rid its electrical grid of all carbon sources by 2045. The state is already the nation’s top producer of solar, geothermal, and biomass energy, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, with renewables accounting for more than 30% of the energy generated in the state.

California is the leader in Green Energy, which is why the state is short on power. Retards.
