Nature causes power outages. Politics causes power to go out during 100 degree days.

    You might be good at politics here Mike. If you can figure out how to charge the fire trucks and police during major calamities,
     then you could have time to work on Solar aircraft.   What about electric powered  gensets?

    Today, someone asked me about using a Tesla battery to spin a motor, driving a generator, for use in outages.
      I could not compose any sort of reply !!!

    Yes that one keeps coming up. The other one is for DISH network to provide emergency power. I just looked at you on Windy and looks like we both stayed below 20 knots. Up above me in the high country it is still gusting over 50 knots.

    It did blow the smoke out from Creek Fire.  :) Been burning for 6 weeks. They are keeping it at 60% contained to let it burn the dead ponderosa from the drought/bark beetle.

    Don't forget to add a charging circuit on the generator to charge the Tesla battery, thus allowing continuous operation.
    I always have more questions than answers. That's the nature of life.

    See, you just have to want hard enough to do it.

    Here I thought they just had to identify with it to make it fact.
