    National and State Renewable Energy stats

    If there's interest, I can publish these stats every month. I siphon up the live 15 minute stats from AEMO and store them in a database, along with estimates (not mine) of small scale/rooftop solar production based on detailed SRES and weather data, since AEMO does not see the latter but it's...

    Residential Wind Power and Powerwall 2 integration

    Does anyone have a Powerwall 2 being fed by Skystream 3.7 (or any other) wind turbines as part of their own residential renewable energy system? We have a combination of wind turbines and solar PV with microinverters as part of our system.

    Wind generator in urban areas

    Hi All, I live in a park that disallows installing solar panels. They have a small baseline allowance in electricity that makes charging unpractical. Im trying to see if anyone has experience with small wind turbine non grid tied installations, and if its worth it. Wonder if they have...

    Who's going all-in and switching to a 100% wind-powered utility service?

    My wife and I will both have electric cars when my Tesla gets here in a few weeks. When that happens, there's no more excuse for us to switch over to wind-powered electricity (not that there's anything stopping us now). As you no doubt know our state is one of the largest producers of wind...

    Grid Storage Opportunity for Tesla

    Kauai now generates 80% or more of its energy from solar panels, and they also use batteries to compensate for the drops in solar energy output at nighttime and when clouds are over the large arrays. This is exciting and a great opportunity for Tesla, especially once the new Tesla Gigafactory...
