Hello. I am just a private citizen interested in green energy. I am very skeptical however of its economic competition with traditional electric generation methods.
I can already tell I’m not a good fit for this subreedit. Can someone suggest another one that is more geared to skeptics, perhaps? I’m working on an essay that faults the Green energy and climate change claims. As I said, not for this board!
I am still researching this and what I am looking for is preferably some kind of documented proof of a small installation whether a single house or in Microgrid, has provable operating expenditures comprable to Conventional electric power. I don’t think it exists but I’m willing to be proven wrong. The only actual installation I found is Tu’a, American Samoa which used a Tesla PowerWall and a solar farm. I don’t want to overly restrict the comparison but I do have a few requirements as follows:
Completely off grid.
Source may be wind or solar.
No fossil backup allowed.
Any type of storage permitted, eg PowerWall.
Must be able to supply 120 volts 60 hertz AC sufficient to power a normal house about 30 kilowatt hours per day, with Peak capacity above that.
For a small community I’m willing to relax a requirement, so yes fossil fuel for backup, but I still want to know what the true operating figures are.
I would even be interested in a real-world experience of such an installation, even if it were not price competitive with conventional electricity. Very hard to find case studies, at least so far.
