Power is an issue.

All sorts of power inverters can be handy. Their parts will go out with time. Problematic part is electrolytic capacitor. It is a problem for all electronic devices.

Wind, solar power usually needs batteries and inverters. Most batteries have a limited lifespan. Solar panels may be a good solution and even with dead batteries as you can use power during daytime. Solar panels degrade with time, but it takes numerous decades. Wind power may need supplies for mechanical wear, generator failures.

Thermoelectric generator is really good long term solution.

Diesel generator may be a good short term solution or it can be used only when there is a need. If it has enough power it can be used for welding (more power is needed) and other tools.
Fuel can be grown and produced as biodiesel.

Biodiesel can be used for cars and engine compatibility problem for new cars is explained.

This problem is unlikely for a mechanical diesel engine used in generator.

Talk to me here about it, so we stay on topic:

I disagree with you about thermoelectric as a long term solution from a carrying capacity restraint.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1110734


It depends on materials used. These have extremely long lifespans even with efficient materials.

Degradation 0.2%/year and at this rate it will reach 50% capacity only after 346 years.

I keep slide rules and books with tables like the CRC. Commonsense, ain't all that common. What good is a computer? Learn to raise food, carpentry, and metal working skills, much better skills if said shit hits the rotors.
 Quoting: AmericanJedi

I know. It was more of a theoretical problem, like the problems you were given at school, such as how long will it take to fill a bath tub if... so and so. Things you won't bother with in real life.

But still - I think it is important to realize that mankind, in order to live, does not necessarily have to rely on industrial, mass production, and that a person might be capable of much more than he realizes.

All you will need is a Bible, and believe that Jehovah is the Creator and His son Jesus Christ died for all of us.

Nothing else is going to save any of us from the wrath that is to come, and it is coming.
