I installed three heat pumps by Mitsubishi, rated 24,000 Btu/h at 47F, Model MXZ-2C24NAHZ2, each with 2 heads, each with remote control; 2 in the living room, 1 in the kitchen, and 1 in each of 3 bedrooms.
The HPs have DC variable-speed, motor-driven compressors and fans, which improves the efficiency of low-temperature operation.
The HPs last about 15 years. Turnkey capital cost was $24,000…Continue

New England states are aiming to reduce CO2 emissions to “fight global warming”. The federal government and each state provide various subsidies to investors to build energy systems that have minimal or no combustion CO2, such as wind, solar, nuclear, hydro, biomass (i.e., wood chip burning), farm methane, etc.
Those subsidies enable Owners to sell their low-CO2 electricity at lower prices to utilities, that are under statutory obligation to buy the electricity. However, no…Continue

The turnkey capital cost to implement the Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan, CEP, would be in excess of $1.0 billion/y for at least 33 years (2017 - 2050), according to a 2015 Energy Action Network, EAN, annual report. If updated to 2021, the numbers would be about $1.25 billion/y for 29 years (2021 - 2050). See URLs.

TEXAS POWER OUTAGE SHOWS IMPACTS OF THE VAGARIES OF THE WEATHER
Texas’ electric grid nearly melted down in the summer of 2019, when searing temperatures sent electricity demand soaring.
The state’s grid operator was able to keep the lights on, but many observers were worried. They wondered if Texas power plants would be able to match the rising demand, driven largely by residents reaching for the dial on their air conditioning units.

China has made electric buses and EVs a priority in urban areas to reduce excessive air pollution, due to: 1) coal-fired power plants, and 2) increased vehicle traffic.
The US has much less of a pollution problem than China, except in its larger urban areas.
The US uses much less coal, more domestic natural gas, and CO2-free nuclear is still around.
New England has a pollution problem in its southern urban areas.
Vermont has a minor pollution…Continue
This article describes some of the election reforms required to avoid a repeat of the Election of 2000
These election reforms are long overdue. They have to be started in Republican Legislatures, because they have the most to lose, if there were a repeat.
This article also includes:
1) A description of the fraudulent preparation of up to 288,000 ballots in envelopes near Bethpage, Long Island, NY, in October 2020, at least a month before the Election of…Continue
This article describes the efficiency of electric vehicles, EVs, and their charging loss, when charging at home and on-the-road, and the economics, when compared with efficient gasoline vehicles.
In this article,
Total cost of an EV, c/mile = Operating cost, c/mile + Owning cost, c/mile, i.e., amortizing the difference of the MSRPs of an EV versus an equivalent, efficient gasoline vehicle; no options, no destination…Continue
Finally, the claim by the legacy US and NE Media, "no significant fraud occurred that would overturn the Election" has been PROVEN FALSE in Pennsylvania and Arizona.
Analysis of election and population data of swing states, such as Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, etc., is ongoing.
Results will be added to this article, as they become available.
The issue is not whether Biden obtained more votes than Trump, such as New York and…Continue
Environmental sciences professor, Jacobsen, at Stamford University, CA, claimed in 2015, almost all US energy requirements, for all uses, could be supplied by wind, solar and hydro. He excluded energy from nuclear and from bio sources, mainly because of excessive cropland area requirements, and because forests are a major absorber and storer of CO2.
NOTE: Coal, oil, gas, etc., are used as feedstocks to make millions of products that fill…Continue
The US, a Beacon of Freedom
The US presents itself as a defender of human and civil rights, and Freedom and Democracy
The US organizes Color Revolutions to oust corrupt governments flouting the Rights of the People.
Almost always, those governments are allied with Russia, the Evil Empire, run by Evil Dictator Putin.
It would seem reasonable, the US would have in place nationwide standards to conduct Elections, to ensure Free and…Continue

Solar systems have their highest electricity production at midday.
The surge of production from near-zero to maximum causes disturbances on the grid, aka DUCK-curves.
Southern California and Southern Germany, with high MW of installed solar, have major DUCK-curves on sunny days.
At present, mostly gas-fired, combined-cycle gas-turbine (CCGT) power plants are used to counteract the DUCK-curve surges.
In California, the shutdowns of 15 of 19 coastal, CCGT…Continue
