2021-03-28 Gov’t Should Fund Green Hydrogen Plant

Also on FB group The govt should fund a plant for electrolyzing green hydrogen from water. This should be able to soak up all the power from renewables that otherwise would be curtailed during off-peak demand times. The whole idea is to get the ball rolling on green hydrogen production without putting load on the

2021-03-20 Energy Harvest Website

Reply on FB group climate change Den Wilmeth Much of what this website says is valid, but no further information is given, such as references or where to buy the thing. For instance, you can already buy a solar roof with the shingles, not panels, from Tesla Energy. There is a renewables revolution happening, and

Comment from Just Have A Think #142 – 2021-03-07 I have to remind Dave that these microhydro systems do have downsides. The 24/7 requirement is getting more difficult because large hydro projects upstream can make the river highly variable, and rivers often slow to a trickle or dry up after the spring rains / snow

2021-03-04 Renewables Plus Storage Replacing Gas Power Plants

From comments Gene Piwko Jr Said, “I just think folks aren’t educating themselves on these things [wind, solar, battery storage].” It looks like this applies to you more than anyone else. You claim that solar is not that reliable. That may have been true ten years ago but today renewables plus storage is replacing fossil
