Levelized cost of wind and solar dropping below gas and conventional by 2026. https://www.renewableenergyworld.com/solar/eia-levelized-cost-of-onshore-wind-solar-pv-dropping-below-gas-fired-and-conventional-generation-by-2026/

2021-02-28 3 kW Solar + LiFe Battery For Under $3000

This is the kind of setup I would like to have. I would use it to run my heat pump / air conditioner and maybe a few other things like the microwave oven. And it would be used for charging my EV when it’s at home. The two solar PV panels are 800 watts total.

2020-12-27 Byron Bay, AU Solar Powered Train

This train runs using an EV battery! Amazing. We need a lot more like it. Tom Scott’s short video https://youtu.be/6Y4QGFte3T8 More information on this and other solar trains https://futurism.com/worlds-first-fully-solar-powered-train-left-station

Generate Hydrogen With A Solar Concentrator = Parabolic Mirror + Other Hydrogen Articles

This needs an expensive catalyser. But the solar energy is free and it generates about a kilogram of hydrogen a day, which can power a car for 150 km. We need green hydrogen to power the whole world and leave the fossil fuels in the ground. Now! https://youtu.be/uj-xFUnN96k ************************** The European Commission plans on having

2020-10-07 The Solenco PowerBox™ System

This self-contained system uses solar PV panels as the only power input. It generates and stores green hydrogen, then uses it later for both electricity and heat. The fuel cell’s byproduct is water. One important “problem” that I see is that this system makes the customer completely independent of the electricity _and_ gas utilities. There

2020-09-25 Anaheim Will Get Electric Buses

The electric vehicle revolution is already happening. Hopefully it will occur much quicker that 2035, which is when Gov. Newsom has signed a law mandating all new vehicles sold must be zero polluting. The only problem is people are avoiding mass transit systems because of CoVID19. I’ve read that ridership is down. That should change
