OK Ill chime in on this
of course one can live off the grid its not that easy and its fairly expensive
but with solar panels and batteries you can easily do it
they need to have a back up generator for the dead of winter in general but it works fine
I mean and we can easily get there its just its not gonna happen by government mandate
Best case scenario is he just threw up some solar panels and just have no more electric bill and use the utility is your battery
Of course we do need utilities yes we do need centralize power plants yes we do need a electrical distribution system with transformers and substations yes of course
We might get get by if the wind dies down & the TV shuts off in the middle of your favorite program, but if it shuts down in the middle of some vital production phase in a factory...that’s serious business. That’s why we MUST maintain conventional power plants. Two points here.....A. The conventional plant has to adjust due to the varying load & the varying output from the “renewable” sources which are most certainly NOT reliable for maintaining a constant feed of the correct voltage, current, & frequency for our needs. This isn’t always easy/practical to accomplish.....B. The conventional power plants are already supplying our needs & more plants can be built if necessary to respond to increased demand. Since these plants are vital anyway, why not correctly view the “renewable” sources for what they really are..not totally reliable, reasonably priced, nor available in sufficient quantity to fulfill our electrical needs. They are merely high-priced standby sources.
This is the modern equivalent of religious indulgences. Pay enough money to some fake green energy company and theyll give you a certificate that your company is now green.
That's how we know they're lying...
Green Energy = Green Money.
