another design for wind

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mccanney-wing-generator-world-energy-project#/story

"WE NEED A WORLD GREEN ENERGY SOLUTION
The hodge podge of low power solar, wind and other alternative energy products being offered today cannot solve our energy crisis, in fact by not being a complete solution and being only a minor band aid, they actually contribute to the problem. They cannot replace the Central Power companies and therefore guarantee our dependence forever on burning high energy content fuels like COAL NUCLEAR and OIL. Additionally, because the central power companies cannot manage the unpredictable bursts and lapses of low power alternative energy, it will be outlawed to "save the power grid and central power companies". That is already happening.

Most green advocates do not understand that "alternative energy" as implemented today is in the best interests of BIG CENTRALIZED ENERGY. It also guarantees that we will NEVER be able to replace gasoline alcohol autos with purely electrical vehicles. Simply put .. the electrical companies cannot produce and deliver enough electrical energy to replace gasoline. SO WE ARE STUCK ... RIGHT ? ... WRONG !"

Sunrun exits Nevada after net metering decision
Krysti Shallenberger | January 7, 2016 | Utility Dive


Quote:
The net metering cap was reached in August, which temporarily halted solar installations, prompting Vivint Solar's exit. The PUC, which earlier had rejected solar advocates' pleas to extend the cap by saying it was under the legislature's purview, voted unanimously keep current rates in place through the end of the year before settling on the new net metering policy.

The new policy decreases the rate paid to rooftop solar customers for the power they export to the grid from the retail rate of the electricity to the wholesale rate. The change would retroactively apply to all solar customers. The PUC created a seperate rate class for all small commercial and residential net metering customers and added a time-of-use pricing option for all. The new rates include an increase in fixed charges and a decrease in the volumetric commodity charge designed to better recoup costs from net metering customers.

Solar developers including SolarCity and Sunrun have decried the new fees and rates, saying they will hurt solar's growth in the state and put hundreds of jobs at risk as the two developers pull their operations out from the Silver State.

The decision “forces Sunrun to displace our Nevada employees, inflicting enormous pain on hard-working Nevada families,” Bryan Miller, senior vice president of public policy and power markets at San Francisco-based Sunrun and spokesman for the Alliance for Solar Choice (TASC), said in a statement. “Nevada passed incentives to attract residents to go solar. But after baiting homeowners with incentives, the state switched the rules, penalizing solar homeowners to deliver additional profit to NV Energy. This bait and switch hurts Nevada families, many of whom are retirees on fixed incomes, and who use solar savings to meet their monthly budgets.”

It is obvious what is happening here. That term 'guaranteed rate of return' is a familiar one; our power utility here has the same arrangement. Implemented by who else? Our provincial government when the power utility was made 'public'. It is obvious who they really work for when one looks at energy policy, gasoline management/pricing and food distribution/pricing. The public is not in any of the equations.

Sunny Nevada Just Killed the Solar Industry with 40% Tax Hike, Derailing the Off-Grid Movement
Justin Gardner | January 15, 2016 | Free Thought Project


Quote:
While Nevadans were celebrating the holidays under solar-powered lights, the Nevada Public Utilities Commission (PUC) voted unanimously to increase a monthly fee on solar customers by 40% while reducing the amount they get paid for excess power sold to the grid. Adding insult to injury, they made the rate changes retroactive, sabotaging consumer investments in solar energy.

This single move by government regulators will effectively kill the solar industry in Nevada and put an end to the surge of people seeking to detach from the grid by harnessing their own energy from the sun. Just as importantly, it serves to protect the profits of Nevada’s public utility company, NV Energy.
“It will destroy the rooftop solar industry in one of the states with the most sunshine…There is so much wrong with the decision,” said SolarCity CEO Lydon Rive. “The one beneficiary of this decision would be NV Energy, whose monopoly will have been protected.”

Two major solar companies, SolarCity and Sunrun, have already left the state, causing upwards of a thousand job cuts. Many more renewable energy jobs are at stake. Solar industry supporters and workers are planning to protest the new rates at a rally in Carson City and Las Vegas, as industry and public outcry may force regulators to reconsider their decision.

Solar meets 100 per cent of South Australia demand for first time
Giles Parkinson | 12 October 2020 | reneweconomy.com


Solar power met 100 per cent of South Australia’s demand on Sunday for the first time. It won’t be the last.
