I then pointed out that we receive more than half our power from wind and solar already via the public utilities. I'm in NW Arizona, if nothing else we have sunshine and constant wind. I was just on the roof looking a leaking fixture, I could see five wind towers and a solar array. What sucks is the local community college doesn't offer any classes or certifications for electro-mechanical technicians so they have to be brought in from CA.
    Bill, how local do you have to be in order to get that generation mix? For our greenhouse gas emission reporting we use the grid mix. For the AZNM (WECC Southwest) grid, the mix is 40% natural gas, 30% coal, and 20% nuke. Only 4% wind and solar. Very close to the national average.

    For some reason, my daughters were streaming old SNL episodes. I happened to watch Season 30 E 8 which was aired 12/18/2004. They had a spoof of Donald Trump doing a Christmas Promo for Apprentice. This was 12 years before becoming President. All of his oddities are there. . . Its very interesting to watch. You'd think it was filmed recently but it wasn't. That is what should scare you.

    NW AZ where I live has a natural gas plant, Hoover Dam, solar, and wind. The nuclear plant is west of Phoenix and the larger coal plant is east of Flagstaff, I know the managers of both, retired Navy guys. I'm sure we get power from outside the region, but not being a major metropolitan area and lacking a concentration of industry, we primary get power from sources within 100 miles. Next month I'm getting a capacitor bank installed on our 2500 KVA transformer output to shift the pf to .95. Part of the deal is a power monitoring panel to let me know when we have transients which are mostly due to switching to and from the solar field.
