Off the grid living, or remoteness and service unavailable, is one thing, here’s the problem: (2017) If, the homeowners’ electric bill is above, say, $110.00 per month, there could be something to look into, other than sales people hyping it up. The homeowner, only gets benefit of, 17.0%, that’s it. The balance, 83.0%, is returned through the house wiring, and provides FREE power to the utility company, who, in turn reduces rates, minimally, if at all. Once the homeowner signs on the dotted line, solar can never be removed, because it is a civil contract. If the homeowner sells the home, the purchaser, is stuck with solar. I had solar in one home and the roof, leaked and leaked. All I got was a song and dance, and the utility saying they have nothing to do with roof leaks due to improper installation, which, they, the utility, recommended, and that contractor, went out of business. My savings were roughly $12.00 per month. A waste. Nice intentions, but a waste.
In California, I want to see all the mansions with solar panels. Why not string solar panels alongside Al Gore’s jet? Maybe the solar panels will conceal pot cultivation or the governor’s secret bathtub gin (?), who knows what.
Remote off the grid, with a capacitor and batteries, it makes sense. If I ever disconnected, the utility company would scheme up something and have crooked lawmakers eel up some law criminalizing popping off and away from the grid. Sometimes I think an EMP incident such as North Korea threatens, would do this nation some good.
As if California could not get any more irresponsible, this comes along. All new homes must be Solar powered. All farms must have 25 percent of their land in windmills. Free College, Free Healthcare…. what am I leaving out? Moonbeams and lollipops. And just who will be bailing out California? Just asking:
The California Senate Majority Leader Kevin de León has introduced a new bill that would mandate the Golden State get all of its electricity from renewable sources by 2045. This replaces a law that was passed in 2016 that dictated that renewable energy sources be 50% of all electricity produced by 2030. This bill moves that requirement up to 2025 with the 50% edict and establishes the new 100% standard 20 years later.
What has not been widely discussed in the press – and buried in the details of the bill – is that all new homes and…
