I am surprised and somewhat dismayed that no one has mentioned supplying our power locally, as do many communities in California. I know this was discussed several years ago with Redwood Energy as consultants. What happened? Crescent City has its own supply, I believe, as do several other communities down south. We are really at a great time to create this and support it!
Another thought. How many of our public buildings have solar power that can be stored by batteries and then plugged into the circuits of these buildings when power is out? I believe that Tesla makes this battery, which is charged with solar panels.
Just to bring the conversation to the solution arena instead of the problem orientation! And no ... I don't think wind power by Terra-Gen is the solution. It's not even on my drawing board!
