    Elon & Twitter

    Of course, having a “politics” rule is completely arbitrary and egotistical. it‘s a rule where someone determines what’s allowed because anything can be labeled as political. I put in my account deletion and everyone else should too. TMC is against all libertarian policies and chooses to rule...

    Politics - Quarantine Thread

    A crazy person attacking someone in San Francisco is common. I’m not going to give the Pelosi’s sympathy more so than all the other folks suffering under their policies. They took a beautiful city and destroyed it under their rule and their families rule. They are promoting illegal...

    I haven’t stated much at all because information is still limited and we know the Pelosi’s are very well protected. She probably makes around $200k a year in one of the most expensive cities in America yet she’s worth over $100M. Interesting that the backs of the folks she made that fortune on...

    You keep referencing organizations that much of America has lost faith in. The FBI got duped by the Russian collusion hoax for years. So now I’m suppose to assume they are investigating this with integrity? CNN is firing all of their top folks due to the lack of journalistic integrity. I’ll...

    The guy was in the country illegally and shouldn’t care about America’s politics but he’s obviously crazy and latched on to nudity, BLM, hard drug use, etc in a city that has a big crime problem. Sorry, but nothing to see here.

    You should never assert you have facts and then reference a CNN article 🤔

    Elon & Twitter

    People are taking Elon’s tweets way too seriously. He was just jokingly trolling Hillary. He always goofs around. He’s a different type of “CEO” and he always will be.

    Elon & Twitter

    Yes, you posted articles which we know are often so biased that you can’t take them as fact. It took six years for the Russia collusion hoax to all fall apart but the media was reporting it as fact the whole time. The same folks that quickly dismissed Hunter‘s laptop as false, which we know it...

    Elon & Twitter

    There isn’t enough public information yet so everyone is speculating, even the media, and calling their opinion “fact” and any other opinions “conspiracy theories”. Constantly calling a differing view a conspiracy theory has now made those words meaningless since it’s thrown around so...

    Elon Musk

    I didn’t see any data source in that blog on education, just a data source on the tendency of lower income people to leave the state which makes complete sense, since the regulations and taxes in California make it hard for lower to middle income folks have a good way of life. Taxes, cost of...

    Florida, Montana, North Carolina, and Texas all gained seats which are states being reported as to where Californians are fleeing too. I‘m just saying the congressional house seat changes are backing up the “fleeing reports” that preceded the announcement of congressional seat changes. Is it a...

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    Not true. There’s plenty of extra capacity, they just turn it down when the sun is shining. When the sun isn’t shining they still need max capacity.

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    Okay. If the product is so valuable disconnect from the grid and use your solar panels above your vaulted ceiling. You can’t because you need to force feed your “valuable energy” to your neighbor. I’m sorry you got scammed but don’t make your neighbors pay for your mistakes.

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    This whole conversation is crazy. You want your neighbors to pay for infrastructure and energy to lower your costs and you are mad that their advocate (PG&E) won‘t allow your costs to be transferred to them. You won’t disconnect from the grid because you need to use the PG&E infrastructure and...

    How can you have a solar array sized for your annual consumption unless you only use energy when the sun is shining? Again, you are trying to lower your costs at the expense of your neighbors expense. This is one of the reasons rates keep going up. Folks abusing the system at the expense of...

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    Again, you can do anything you want on your own. It sounds like you want to produce expensive energy when it’s not needed and then at a point in time when energy is expensive and you can’t produce energy, they credit your bill at the expense of your neighbors. Just disconnect from the grid and...

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    You can install whatever you want. The issue is when you want to connect to their distribution system that is highly regulated. Many of the restrictions the utilities convey to people are just pass through restrictions the utility has to abide by. If they allow you to over build then they...

    Can I add more solar with PG&E?

    Unless you completely disconnect from the grid, you will be supporting fossil fuels because they are a necessary component of 24/7 electricity on the grid.

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    The reason transmission costs have gone up so much in high renewable areas (roughly west of the Mississippi River due to high wind and solar irradiance potential) is because every time you put in new generation, you have to upgrade substations and transmission lines to accept the new generation...

    One more analog. Communism is the municipality. There‘s no ”profit“ yet it’s extremely inefficient. Capitalism, there are profits, yet everyone fares better.

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    Municipalities take their “profits” and shift the dollars to other parts of the city budget. So there is a lot of pressure on municipalities from city officials (politicians) to get more “profit“ from the rate payers so they can use the money on spending for their initiatives. I’ve worked for...

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    The more likely reason those municipalities have lower rates is because they have a lot more electric meters per mile than PG&E. PG&E pays for a lot of infrastructure spanning a lot of land with relatively very few meters. Add in the cost of subsidies for “low income“ rate payers, the shifting...

    over-production with PGE

    Often there’s too much energy on the grid, primarily from wind and solar production, and the LMP is negative, meaning any energy put on the grid at that point the utility has to pay and not get paid for the energy going onto the grid. Too much energy can result in grid reliability issues, so...

    Infrastructure Bill to Invest $7.5B into EV Chargers Along Highways

    BART was brought up because of a misunderstanding. The whole discussion was based around the $40 billion bullet train that is now hundreds of billions of dollars and many many years behind schedule, all at taxpayer expense. It was an example of government leading a project like the charging...

    Infrastructure Bill to Invest $7.5B into EV Chargers Along Highways

    This is shaping up exactly like any government contract and specification. People don’t want to stop at at a filthy rest stop with one vending machine. People want to charge their car where there are restaurants and convenience stores. If you’ve ever been to Key West and saw the government...

    Infrastructure Bill to Invest $7.5B into EV Chargers Along Highways

    I’m talking about the bullet train which is years behind schedule and isn’t operational. It was sold to tax payers as a $40 billion project and is now hundreds of billions and not complete.

    Infrastructure Bill to Invest $7.5B into EV Chargers Along Highways

    It’s just a talking point for the politicians at taxpayer expense. Again, more than likely these will be junk that just rusts away. Amtrack probably sounded great too on paper or the train in California that makes The Big Dig look like a good deal.
