    If hydro is available in the western mountains, and power is needed in a more eastern state, there is going to be more loss shipping it than from local generation.

    Moot point anyway, all the power...

    I am referring to 'pumped hydro", a storage means. It is used for peaking in the daytime, and is a load at night.

    Hydro at the river dam runs all the time, but, unfortunately, as I mentioned, it...

    The first thing to find out about a new engineer is whether or not he/she works on cars, or fixes things, etc. Or, even if the engineer knows which end of the screwdriver you hold.

    Good plan. PVC, especially in that size, is going to "give" and "squirm" like crazy.

    You just proved it is real.


    nature was in a balance for million of years. Your 3% upsets that balance and has been for a couple hundred years, possibly over a thousand.

    Yep, in that time a...

    We are, but the original subject has been answered nicely, so I'm letting it wander wherever it goes.

    Stuff like that happens. If it does not get nasty and personal, I'm good with it wandering.

    Gap bed is another British lathe feature, uncommon in small US. Particularly a permanent gap type with no "filler piece"..

    Actually, the refining only has to be rudimentary, in no way enough to build a bomb from the material, other than a "dirty" chemical bomb, which you can do with a lot of things.

    The IFR is not a breeder that makes usable bomb material. There are idiot politicians who do not understand that, and do not want to. Some are libercrats, and some are "Becausewecans".

    Don't know about your location, but our recycling program makes enough money to continue and almost pay for itself. Most of the stuff gets sold to places that want it. They pay because they use...

    The problem is that 98% of the energy is STILL IN the "spent" fuel. IFR reactors (killed by Klinton) burn it down to nearly nothing.

    Nuclear, done right, is cheaper than no power.

    How silly......

    PUMPED HYDRO is a "load" at night when it is being pumped.

    A renewable grid with NO ties to fossil base load, and no use of natural hydro, nuclear etc? Only in very special...

    NO large "base load" plant can be turned off quickly, or started up quickly. Nature of the beast. Marine are a different animal.

    Disprove the facts, and then we can talk.

    We have pumped storage here. It works too, but at a low efficiency. And it is used for peaking power,...

    You make me laugh at you.

    The "sources" you posted include what can only be described as "loads".

    The actual internal wiring is like a high leg 3 phase, but the center tap is not brought out. So the only connection options are as delta-delta.
