Homes are still heated with oil??

Welcome to the Northeast USA. Unfortunately natural gas isn't available in all areas.
Fortunately, we don't allow, or encourage, public sidewalks to be used as toilets. [emoticon]

Yes here it’s a choice of bottled propane or oil, no piped in natural gas. It’s why we like our new Fujitsu Halcyon Hybrid Inverter producing heat from air down to -5.

10 cent price increase? Honestly where we pay $4.09/gal who would notice.

I suppose we could pack up those 23 million residents of New England and other areas that use fuel oil for heating and move them to the Sunshine state to take the pressure off of Diesel prices, but paying a dime a gallon more sounds like a better alternative.


That's the Trump solution, like what he proposed when he found out Seoul is within striking distance of North Korean missiles, move it further south.

But half seriously, Elon Musk proposed a single site 100x100 miles solar in an empty part of a state like Arizona and it will generate enough power for the entire nation.


He could house the 23 million at Mar A Lago.

Sounds as good as building a wall in Colorado.

The way things are going, there's going to be a lot of moving in the next 100 years.


And what percentage of the Christian Refugees from the South have been driven of farms to the cities because it is getting to hot and dry in the areas they farmed? Then driven out of cities by gangs?

Don't worry, there might be excess and oversupply of it very soon.

California is taxing it out of reach and making it obsolete with high tech renewables.

The problem with that plan is that the power couldn't be distributed to the entire nation. The power grid isn't that interconnected, plus resistance loses would reduce the power getting to the northeast where it's needed. Apparently we use all the fuel oil in the world to heat our houses increasing the diesel prices in tropical Montana.

jplante, DO NOT inject reality into someone’s imagination....it ruins the dream! Lol

This forum is still the best entertainment one could ask for! It’s like watching Fox News and CNN argue in person!

And a 10c increase? Idk how one would notice....price fluctuates close to $2 a gallon just within the areas I drive on a daily or weekly basis.

Let's see what happened to the Neanderthals who are without imaginations and thought fire is too difficult, too dangerous and cannot be done.

And in comparison when JFK said we should land a man on the moon and the scientists got some of the inspirations from the imagination of the cartoonists and their drawings of space vehicles and moon buggies.

Now, let's further imagine if the world was ruled by Neanderthals, although some people think they still walk among us. Or if JFK appointed Mr Magoo as the head of his space program.

How will you rate that problem: Not doable at all or impossible? Will take time and huge investment? A must do regardless of cost?

Remember how our inter-state freeway system was built?

Even without the consideration of a single-site solar energy source, I kept on hearing since time immemorial that "urgent" issue of interconnecting our power grid to solve our country's uneven regional supply-and-demand situation. That sure will be the best time to do this projects together.
