1. Time to make minor updates to my #solar unpopular opinions thread, since this seems to be a good way to organize thoughts.

If you like these, you’ll like my book, Solar Power Without the Jargon. tinyurl.com/y4bsswty
2. Solar Power Without the Jargon is the book I should have read before seeking a job in renewables, from the perspective of having worked in this for 14 years. It’s short and not too serious; one reviewer said it “made me laugh quite a few times”.

Here is today's Beto version. Lets change minds.
@donniecash818
@JLYMusic

We are going to invite a guest speaker to thread today.
He is widely known in the renewable industry. He wrote an article about ending Fossil Fuel Welfare.
@CajunBlueAZ1 @Maltomash @donniecash818 @JLYMusic Good morning:
Until 2016, solar had experienced an average annual growth rate of 68%. Nearly 260,000 Americans worked in solar - more than double the number in 2012 - at more than 9,000 companies in every U.S. state.
@CajunBlueAZ1 @Maltomash @donniecash818 @JLYMusic The cost to install solar has dropped by more than 70% since 2010, leading the industry to expand into new markets and deploy thousands of systems nationwide.

The largest #renewable energy battery on earth, Bath County Pumped Storage Station, is located on the border of W. VA and Virginia. /1

#greenenergy 🌎🔋🍃

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_Coun…
It's generation capacity is ~3,030 MW (that's about 5 avg. sized coal plants 🏭).

With a storage capacity of 24,000 MWh (the output of ~40 avg. sized coal plants 🏭) / 2

We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina

"I want to install a simple solar PV system in the rooftop of my house. How do I go about it??"

This is the procedure for a simple system with Net-metering and no Batteries.
Step 1: calculate rooftop area in Sqft or Sqm Say 100 sqm++
2/n
of shadow free area. You need to own the rooftop.
Thumb rule: 1kW needs 10 Sqm/100Sqft
In our case, we can build 10 kW. You need own the rooftop.
Step 2: Check Ebill: say the consumption is 1500 units (kWh)/month. In India, peak sunshine hours = 5.5 hours. In order to++
3/n
zero your ebill, you need 1500/(30 x 5.5) = 9 kW system.
Step 3: Check sanction load in ebill. You solar size cannot exceed this value.Say sanction load = 10 kW
Step 4: Choose the min of the values in 1, 2 and 3 and that is the size of the system. In this case,it is 9 kW++

Nature is angry - and we foool ourselves if we think we can fool nature. Our Earth is issuing a cry: "STOP". The climate crisis is caused by us, and the solutions must come from us -@UN Chief @antonioguterres at #ClimateActionSummit on the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions
@UN @antonioguterres "We are at the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can do is talk about eternal economic growth" - @GretaThunberg makes a passionate plea for #ClimateAction at today's #ClimateActionSummit in New York. Watch live 🎥webtv.un.org/live/ #UNGA
@UN @antonioguterres @GretaThunberg @GlobalGoalsUN Indian PM @narendramodi - "We are going to increase the share of non-fossil fuels to 174 gigawatts in 2020, and to futher increase #renewableenergy to 450 gigawatts"

India has installed #solar panels on the roof of the @UNHQ building in NYC

Reading through @OtherProfGreen summary of the 9th August #UK event, the similarities to the 25th August 2018 #Australian separation event across the #NEM are very interesting to observe.
Firstly, they are all attributed to lightning strikes.

And although the #UK one was easy to identify, the #QLD one took a bit of forensic investigation as it happened at a time that no weather warnings were out for the area.
Both events attribute an initial loss of generation due to disconnection of #distributed #generation #DG

I will get back to this point later, because it is probably the most interesting aspect of both events!!

Deciphering the panoply of manipulation deceit & lies of the parasitic #Ophite/ #Khazarian #Globalist #DeepState cabal…

To begin with “#OnlyTheNameChanges” is key to THEIR usurping/ renaming belief systems for THEIR own benefit… regardless ALL are based on #Ophiolatreia 🐍

To comprehend “#Serpent worship” one must travel far back in time to the founding cults of ALL symbolism/ religions/ belief systems…

2) Summary: drivers for higher #uranium prices include growing #demand for #nuclear #energy, #China reactor builds, recent #U3O8 supply cuts & long lead times to recover, mines unprofitable without 50% U price rise, inventories down as contracts roll off, 232 uncertainty gone...

Hey, I’ve now had my #solar panels for 2 years. So here’s a thread about why #solar panels are awesome. 1
The first thing to know about going #solar is that once you do it you never have to think about it. I sell power to the grid during the day and buy power from the grid at night, but that's all automatic. When I turn on the lights the lights turn on, day or night. 2
The next thing to know about #solar is the excellent economics. I estimated in this essay about greening my life politico.com/magazine/story… that my panels would pay for themselves in eight years. It's now looking like the payback will be...yup, eight years. 3

Recent @bradplumer article for @nytimes asks - will utilities replace #coal with #naturalgas or #renewableenergy? Utilities are diverging along those paths, but the math for renewable and storage economics is more compelling than many understand. A thread:
1/ If you concede that natgas or some "firm" capacity is for balancing and to meet peak, it's fair as a rule of thumb to say solar plus storage replaces that service until we get to much higher penetrations of renewables. We can rely for now on 450 GW of existing gas.
2/ @Lazard LCOE v12 puts the LCOE of natgas at $41-74. Consider two interesting numbers. The first is yesterday's contracts for 1200MW solar and 590MW storage in Nevada. Only one contract for 200/100 MW of solar + 4hr battery announced prices. greentechmedia.com/articles/read/…

This week, one thing we know: if the UK government believes there is a #ClimateEmergency it certainly isn’t acting like it. 🚨

Here’s a tale of words and not deeds. About the UK government’s climate commitments and climate action (or lack of).

Read on… #SolarVAT #NetZero 1/8
In May, the UK parliament declared a #ClimateEmergency… but this shouldn’t be mistaken for climate ACTION. 2/8

act.gp/2FwJL9j
To tackle this #ClimateEmergency we're going to need lots of clean power. Like #solar power…

Solar got a rough start. It used to be thought of as too expensive and took subsidies to really get going...

So China's MacMines shelves its decade long development of its Galilee Coal project, China Stone. A $6.7bn high ash, low energy (HALE) thermal #coal export proposal. abc.net.au/news/2019-05-2… by @LGartry
Why? 🇨🇳 is moving to decarbonise & transition its economy as fast as it can. China is the world's biggest producer, consumer & importer of coal. But China's coal consumption peaked in 2014. 🇨🇳 will probably cease thermal coal imports medium term, relying on their domestic mines.
China just announced a 21GW subsidy free wind & #solar tender, for construction completion by next year. Grid parity for renewables in China by 2020. That is well ahead of target. Zero pollution, zero emissions domestic production. bloomberg.com/news/articles/… by Feifei Shen @business

"Contrary to public perceptions, solar panel uptake is proportionally more common in roofs of those with lower- to middle socio-economic standing." Great work by @solarcitizens @VEPC_VU @p_hannam

1/For those who say - "what about renters and people who live in apartments?" there are a few options available. 1. Sun Tenants which works by splitting the benefit of #solar between landlords and tenants - suntenants.com @SunTenants
2/ Then if you live in Victoria the Vic Government is introducing a #Solar for renters rebate from 1st July this year. #springstreet danandrews.com.au/policies/rente…
