Given that investment in renewables has managed to destablise
the grid (which may yet suffer a death spiral), I'm considering
installing solar panels and battery, to protect myself from
blackouts. Absent equipment failures, blackouts are caused when
there is insufficient generation capacity to meet demand. At
that time, the wholesale market price reaches its cap of $14
per kWh, which is rather more than the derisory 12 cents or so
one receives for a
feed-in. I'd probably turn my solar panels off, or at least
direct my system
not to feed-in (assuming it's capable of that), during such
periods because I'd rather forgo the pittance they pay than
supply power at 1% of its market value.

Better would be to organise a boycott - get large numbers of
solar panel owners to do the same. Since this would lead to
further blackouts, the regulator would be forced to the table
to ensure that owners got a fair priced at such times.

But how to organise it?

Sylvia.

First get your solar panels. Then go on facebook. This is
politics again, not electronics.


Did the subject line mislead you?

Sylvia

Did the newsgroup name mislead you?

As there is no general electrical NG a lot of us now put electrical
discussions here as most electronic people know a bit about
electricity. And the politics of electrical distribution fits

Odd that there's no aus.general etc. The NZ newsgroup heirarchy has
nz.general *and* nz.politics as well as regional groups.

Also as I'm sure you know theres a big difference between
'electrical' and 'electronic'. Even bigger between electronic and
political / industrial boycotts related to electricity.

Cheers,

So you want to keep your electronics pure? Don't let any discussion of
electrics taint your group? There would not be one without the other
and as there is no general electrical group people do the sensible
thing and share.
Most electrical people share an interest with electronics They would
not be snobs excluding others.


Your inferrence that I'm being an 'electronics snob' is incorrect and a
strawman - I objected to the OP due to it being mainly political in nature.
The elecrtical / electronics thing was an 'also'.

Actually there's exactly that:

You'll probably want to bring a good killfile with you though.

I think it's probably better than waiting for one on-topic thread
a month, which seems to be the point at which a newsgroup begins
to die completely.

If people can get into the habit of starting Off Topic threads
with "[OT]", many newsreaders can be configured to filter out
such threads.

Yes to that! Preface with OT and it's much better.
