Hi OSM. I so want one of those, does the guy use it or is it just rusting away? Either way tell him to fix the shed!

Lots of units of similar capacity to this for sale on TradeMe here for, maybe, $3-4K.  But they're too big to load and too thirsty to run.  What would you do with one

Hi Mike, I`d sell power to my neighbors once the whole energy grid goes to sh1t. Only a matter of time IMHO

Yes.  Been hearing stories across the ditch of energy fragility over there.  Greed and stupidity in action - like governments everywhere "captured by industry" sadly

Once upon a time electrical reticulation here was seen as a service that had to be provided by government for the good of citizens & development of the economy.  Over about 70 years it has changed into a commodity that can be sold to those who can afford it, is out of reach of those who can't, and is generated and distributed by large companies whose first obligation is to make a double-figure return on investment to shareholders.  Sad days

The power Co's have successfully won over the soft of heart and head now to think they are hard done by.

For the last few days I have been watching and talking on another site where idiots there are pushing the idea that people with solar should pay more on their power bills to offset the cost of power for those that have no solar and to "Be fair" to the power companies whom have to maintain the grid and do all the admin work in running their businesses.

They are also Championing that the " Supply charges", the price you pay to be connected to the grid, should be higher to offset price increases in the energy used because it's not fair to the power cos that people have holiday houses or other low use connections and the poor grid operators have to pay for and maintain a connection without getting much return. They make out like the power cos come out every week or month to service them instead of every 20+ years from what I seen.

Several posters were saying that the power cos were wanting to charge them, up to $50K because they were the last ones to build in the street, the PC's said all the allocation was taken up and they would have to pay for a transformer to be put in..... that would then do the whole street.
Some how these Brain washed Koolaide drinkers think that's fair and as well as paying for the maintence, the power used, getting a low FIT on power they send back, people should also pay the full cost for having power connected because the power co's stuffed up on their calculations and won't connect the last guy.

Cry me a freaking River!   ::)

We are not talking about a charity here struggling to feed the homeless, we are talking about greedy corporations posting Millions in profits every quarter.
Nothing like the bleeding hearts carry on about must make money to survive to provide the service or we'd have to live without power supply.
The gullibility of people these days is just plain scary!

Can't wait for the supermarkets to complain about their profitability and they need to double prices in order to make better dividends for their sharholders. No doubt the Numptys will think that's fair and support it as well.

That said.... I did say on the thread that those that felt they would like to express their gratitude to the power co's and make sure they stayed in business would no doubt be welcome to make donations to their profitability. I asked who would like to contribute a donation we could pass on with out thanks for all they do and help keep prices at the same level for those without solar.
Surprising while many parts of my post was quoted and challenged tot he effect we should pay more, not one person, even after being reminded again, wanted to make a donation.

Morons!

On oone hand we are browbeaten about saving the planet, reducing emissions, getting off the devils fossil fuel and all the rest of it, then on the other the power co's are doing all the can to stop the average person doing the one thing they can of any significance in making their own clean power.

And people wonder why I have nothing but Contempt for the green movement, Big Biz and politics.
It's all a joke and insult to ones intelligence.

Once again Glort you have hit the nail on the head when it comes to the truth. The people don`t want the truth. The truth is inconvenient to them and undermines their feelings of superiority, entitlement and immortality. Governments have always known that people will believe what they are told and ignore anything that is likely to have a negative impact on their personal wealth and well being.

One of these days, and it won`t be long, they are going to get the shock of their lives when someone tells them they can`t have what they want because there isn`t any left!

Might be time to start stockpiling what is going to be in short supply in the near future.

Too late Bob.

Common sense, logic, honesty and credibility have already become extinct with decision makers and leaders the world over.
We do have an incalculable excess of greedy, self serving  corporate puppets that will spin any BS in order to line their own pockets.

Maybe instead of coal, we could feed these types to the furnaces of thermal powerstations?
There would be an inexhaustible supply of fuel and the emissions reduction outside the power plants on a world scale would be beyond what anyone could even hope for!

Hmm, well..... that depends...... there could be a considerable number of applicants for the position Bob and I'd have to be fair in whom I appointed. You would need some highly specialised qualifications to be successful......

Are you a good shot?    :-\

Eyes aren`t what they were but I`m still a pretty good shot. My bull sh1t detector is well tuned and I know which end of a cattle prod to hold. Would it help if I offered to take the position unpaid?

I consider it my civic duty to rid the world of these parasites, they are all going to burn in hell anyway, I simply want to accelerate the process. I would probably start in Canberra where there is a high concentration of overpaid useless individuals.
