• Don’t tell Germany
    September 19,2013

    Is solar viable? Canít use it in Alaska, canít use it in northern regions, canít ... canít ... canít.

    Distributed power production is upon us. Base load power producers just donít get it. The music industry didnít understand Napster either.

    Then there is this from Germany:

    ďIn July, the grey-skied country logged 5.1 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity from solar power, slightly better than the 5 TWh of electricity generated by wind turbines it produced in January.Ē

    There is a myth that, engineering-wise, bumble bees canít fly, they just donít know it. I guess Germany just doesnít know solar doesnít work.
