    Decentralized Energy

    An old concept (Tesla) that NEEDS to be revisited.

    ...
    We must decentralize energy production if we are to break free of elite domination, beginning with already available renewable energy options such as solar, geothermal and wind. There is plenty of renewable energy available to support a decentralized society that is no longer burdened by wasteful, inefficient high-overhead manufacturing, gratuitous consumption of frivolous and short-lived consumer goods transported over vast distances, and the daily ritual of commuters creeping along in rush hour traffic to and from cities in their gas-guzzling SUV’s....

    What would our world be like if energy were as free as air?

    Then what would they TAX the hell out of?

    Ran across this company a few years ago http://www.bloomenergy.com/fuel-cell/energy-server/ They claim fossil fuels or renewables can power the units and several of the big boys like Google, WalMart, BofA use their "servers".
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    I have read about the "bloom boxes". Neat stuff.

    I want to be completely self sufficient one day. Or as close as possible.

    Peter, do you care about B/C, at all?
    Which ever one(s) of you little boys complained about quotes in the signature should be ashamed of yourself.

    Instead of complaining to the moderators you should just quit playing on this board.
