GM Official Bragged About Electric Car, Then Reporter Forced Her to Admit Where Charging Electricity Comes From.
When asked about the source of electricity used to power the car, the GM official responded that it came from the building where she works. An official with the Lansing Board of Power and Light set the reporter straight. He told him, “It would be charging off our grid, which is about 95 percent coal.”
The dirty truth that electric car makers don't want you to know!
After a marathon Zoning Board meeting that lasted beyond 2 a.m. the concerned residents scored a victory as the board was unable to approve proposals from Cranston-based Green Development to build five new solar fields in residential western Johnston neighborhoods.
The neighbors — through their lawyer and their own experts — made a persuasive argument. And for now, it seems a proposal for five new solar farms in Johnston has been defeated.
When they’re not bursting into toxic fireballs, the contribution made by giant lithium-ion batteries remains utterly trivial. They are, after all, electricity storage devices and don’t add a lick to electricity generation capacity, anywhere.
The cost of battery storage is out of all proportion to the benefits returned.
No one talked about electricity storage when we allowed nuclear, coal-fired and gas-fired plants to deliver power, 24/7.
Chandler (AZ) firefighters have been working a fire at a lithium-ion battery storage site since Monday.
The fire has been burning in the building since then. Firefighters have kept a fire suppression system flowing water on the fire and vented the building to control the burning.
A fire that was in a similar location where firefighters were injured inspired the Fire Department to study how to handle these types of situations.
LOVELL, Maine —
Lovell residents voted 202-30 to pass an ordinance killing a proposed 180-acre solar farm in a town meeting Saturday morning.
The farm, proposed by Walden Renewables, drew the ire of residents for its potential impact on the views of the surrounding mountains, as well as threatening the rural landscape of the town according to residents.
Pulaski County Commissioners and Council members approved ERA designations and tax abatements for Mammoth Solar and Moss Creek Solar
The following article exposes the type of corrupt county officials that need to be voted out of office.
If you have local officials that are willing to destroy the homes and lifestyles of their residents, they MUST be replaced by someone that will protect the local homeowners. This is a great example of the reason Indiana's population is dwindling every year.
How PV systems can influence firefighting operations may be an essential input during the ongoing development of standards. Standards provide information on safety consideration, however, at present there is a lack of coverage of fire safety issues, including firefighting response.
The public project description:
Restore common sense and fairness to energy and agricultural policy by removing the corporate welfare that has propped up substandard energy sources for far too long.
The audience gave the Warwick City Council a standing ovation Monday after it gave second passage to an ordinance restricting large solar developments in residential areas.
The vote marks the end to a process that began over the summer when the Council was one vote away from approving a previous drafted ordinance.
