I don't know why you're so fixated on Musk and Tesla. You don't have to be a fan of either to appreciate the energy independence you can achieve with a solar installation. Stick it to the man and be your own energy provider!this thread is funny…
I thought solar was about reducing carbon emissions? Musk says In the BIG picture EV and solar Would reduce carbon emissions. I mean duh, BUT it’s too late? I know several years ago there was a thing called a Tesla battery that was supposed to be cheap. I don’t hear much about it these days. But the idea was it everybody’s house was going to be covered in solar panels and they have their own battery in it. And then your car charging would be free. Then again we have to buy more copper nickel cobalt and silver? So the manufacturing of the solar panels what will that do to the earths systems? this one better than the other? His life just a simulation? Can I get a reset button? Nope it’s too late!
So some will suffer the change, others will be forced to change, and others will blindly follow. The us still gets 60% of its power from burning coal. Here in Washington they are decommissioning dams, and one of the local power agencies just had a company put a bid in for a proposal bit of nuclear power plant. Apparently for the big power company‘s solar panels just don’t do it.
Yet, they do charge a lot of money for their power, and as I mentioned here in my state dams are being decommissioned and in three more years the contract that Washington gets the majority of their power from will be expiring. And then California will be bidding on that same power a majority of which actually comes from a company out of Idaho. The Bonneville power company. They recently decommission their largest power providing damn. So, the people of Washington are about to see an increase in power, and so are the people in Idaho.
