I hope that as we help to rebuild the islands and mainland devastated by the hurricanes, that we think forward how we rebuild smartly.
Seeing the left image of gas lines in Puerto Rico I was compelled to share the contrasting image on the right too. And add a description of 9 solar panels providing transportation for life. [image: cid:image001.png@01D33E05.7A20B9C0] If the image does not come through, it is posted here: http://aprs.org/gas-or-solar.png Bottom line. After helping with the immediate humanitarian crisis, we should take care not to rebuild, or invest in any more petroleum economy when we can do it NOW cheaper with solar and Electric Cars fueled at home or in the community! I hope this does not come across as insensitive. But Tesla and Germany are sending in solar panels and powerwalls…… Get the electricity flowing again locally without waiting for the grid to be rebuilt. The average cost of EV’s (with incentives) now cost thousands less than the average cost of all gas car models. And the new Chevy Bolt can drive from one end of the island and back on a single overnight charge… Used EV’s are a bargain too. Starting at $6k for a smart4two through $9k for a Leaf, up to about $12k for a 3 year old Volt. We must not invest any more in Fossil fuel infrastructure. Especiallly when it is blown away… Bob -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
