 Quoting: Anonymer Feigling


It has been brutally hot in my area, mainly because of the humidity. We are getting a couple days of a break (from the humidity, not the heat itself) then it's back to tropical levels of humidity.

Thankfully I'm not in texas, about 3 hours north.

The ERCOT website says to conserve but doesn't have any kind emergency order. There's also nothing about this on my providers website.

And my coop is pissed because I have an off the grid solar/wind system with a propane back up and utility disconnect.

Yet, my neighbor, the state trooper, is using the same company to do the same thing! Because he took one look at my set up and said, "Oh, this is awesome!"

The charge me a fee for the electricity I sell back to them. It's hilarious. But with one throw of the switch, I'm off the grid. My battery bank will run my house for three days at 85% capacity without charging. It was an investment, but I don't need them if I don't want them.
Common sense is not a gift, it is a curse. Because you are constantly surrounded by folks who have so little of it.

Christ all mighty it's like I'm playin' cards with my sister's kids. You nerve wracking sons of bitches.

Gov Abbott just the other day told us that our power has been recently protected....and not to worry.

If we have a black out in Texas it will be fully deliberate and not a matter of too much heat and too much usage.

It will be a deliberate turning off of the power again just like they did in winter.

Fucking bastards if that happens.

That's crazy, you must have quite a few batteries as backup reserve-power. I have only 4 at my place (newbie here) and am buying a few more in town today as I need ALOT more amp-hours for when the sun goes down or when its really cooking in mid-afternoon.

Swamp coolers are cheap to operate but they do require CONSTANT water (esp if you have now ell to supply that).

How does your location on the planet relative to a political boundary have anything to do with your intelligence? You're obviously intellectually far superior to me, so please explain. Use small words so I will understand. Thanks.
