I have a ? How does producing power in Utah, and sending it to California, help
the State of Utah, other than monetarily?
Pipe dreams and not feasible or dialog energy efficient application of half a
billion dollars federal aid. Solar projects are not sustainable or feasible cost
effective form of energy and they are eyesores on areas of land that destroys
environment and habitat. These platforms generate low DC voltage
that cannot be transformed or useable in its natrual state. It takes millions of
dollars of specialized low value electronics to raise or convert DC voltage to
AC voltage to transmit it across hundreds of miles to users. DC voltage has been
a proven failure as reliable cost effective alternative to AC generators power
plants with 10 times the efficiency of solar panels or even turbine
windmills.It cost a lot more to sustain marginal low voltage DC
power generators than its worth.Obama theorist are nuts and not
worth the collapse of the economy on false theories.
My2Cents: "Solar projects are not sustainable..."As opposed
to finite fossil fuels? Even if you accept an estimate that there is enough
coal and natural gas to last, say, 300 years, what happens in the year 2314 when
it's gone? You don't wean a baby overnight.I'm fine
with solar PV, but why not site it in urban areas closer to the end users? Why
not put it on warehouse and big box rooftops (like IKEA) or in parking lots?
That would cut down on transmission lines and take advantage of the existing
To "My2Cents" I don't think you know what you are talking about.
With a high voltage power transmission system, the power in that system is DC,
so to add more DC power to it is not a problem. The specialized equipment to
convert it from DC to AC is already there since the high voltage lines are
already DC.This is a bad project, but that is only because solar
power can only exist with massive subsidies.
Well Solar does work I hate to be the bearer of bad news, the reason is
electricity prices are going up in California as we as a state divest our state
off of coal fired electricity plants, something Utah sells California
ELECTRICITY so the plants you currently have you will have to sell your
electricity to another state. So why not produce 100% solar energy instead of
adding carbon to the atmosphere seems like a smart thing from our point of view
as your clients if you have solar energy. More and more people are adding solar
systems to their homes here in California I have one and haven't had a bill
in over a year and my neighbors are installing a system as we speak. So
continue to think outside of the box and you will continue to sell 100% clean
electricity to California.
