FarkedOver: FTFA:When a new wind farm is opened and we're told how many thousands of households it can supply with electricity, that number applies to only a quarter of our demand. In Germany, 75 percent of electricity goes to industry, for which a secure supply -- that is, at every second, and with constant voltage -- is indispensable.Fark it, if you and your neighbors lose power BIG FARKING DEAL! WHO CARES!? A business loses power!! OH NO!! GOD NO!! THINK OF THE BUSINESSES!Everything is not about business. The sooner we as a people come to understand that, the better off we will be in the long run.Is "Oh no think of the businesses!" the new "Oh no think of the children!"?
FarkedOver: yousaywut: Well aware I am also aware that if power fluctuates too often the back-ups get overwhelmed and shut down and in some of the more robust industries that could mean the end of the city in which they are built. I am definitely not refering to shopping malls here. Stable consistant energy is one of the factors into how production factories are built.Just an extreme example of why having too much and then not enough energy on a grid can be extremely devestating.Well, I am referring to shopping malls. When it comes to vital industry that has to do with the public good I am cool with that. When it comes to padding some assholes wallet at the expense of the public, i am not cool with that.Too often the burden falls on the working class. It must end.
mrshowrules: Super capacitors have great potential. They are lossless.
Robo Beat: Just fire up the boilers and let the smoke drift east into Poland.
actualhuman: JerkStore: Interesting that the Germans consider a nuclear power plant to be "conventional."In the sense that it supplies most of their power now, yeah.
