Every gas station, grocery store and restaurant closed due to massive power shut offs as part of the state’s efforts to avoid a major wildfire. The mayor found himself loaning out his personal pickup truck and RV, which have built-in generators, to the town’s 2,000 residents as they scrambled to save food in their refrigerators, charge their phones and find a way to stay warm.
This article is a sobering reality of the state of California’s power problems. As sad as this is there is a silver lining! California is now faced with helping to solve some of the world most difficult power problems and we will as seen below!
Last month’s preventative power shutoffs in California highlighted the vulnerability of the electricity grid to threats exacerbated by a changing climate.
In the wake of the forced outages, much has been written about the ability of solar PV arrays working in tandem with stationary battery storage systems to keep the lights on when the grid goes down. But what about the mobile battery packs carried in the hundreds of thousands of electric vehicles now on the road in California?
This article explains where I am placing my bets! We just need Bi-Directional home charging and we have our emergency battery backups to last for days!
Who you Gonna Call when your Power is Out? Now is the time for you to start making your plans especially if you live in CA because this is just the tip of the iceberg melting from all the fires! There is no quick fix for the general public but there is a quick fix for us as individuals to regain our Personal Power and it starts with solar and backup battery for your home!
If you live in other areas of the US with major weather related damages and problems that result in power outages you too need to get your Personal Power back on track!

We are enjoying our Chevy Volt and mildly interested in the Tesla Model 3 until this very in-depth great video review. We are now very interested. We never buy, we only lease, and write it all off on our business at www.NHBig.com
Every three years we get another opportunity to see what great cars are available and fun to drive and eventually they will be driving us!
Here is our comment – No More Free Data Mining – when this becomes our mantra, we will not need a universal paycheck as promoted by Facebook, Tesla, Microsoft, Amazon, and the rest who will fool us into living in poverty. Interesting that they have never suggested No More Free Data Mining as a way to put the earning power back to the people. They know it would cost them a lot more then a universal paycheck which is a smoke screen of avoidance to the true value of our worth. If they had to pay every minute of everyday, they Data Mined us, we can choose when to turn that income off and on, while watching our accounts grow. If we are to be automated out of jobs in the future we had better look at the value we offer as consumers. They may have money, but they don’t have the power of voters and they don’t want their infrastructure burnt to the ground. No More Free Data Mining.
Road Trip! Can our Nissan Leaf all-electric car
make it from Santa Barbara to San Simeon ?

I will say there is a saving going solar on your home. We went from a $400 per month electric bill to SCE to $190 per month to SolarCity to lease purchase our solar over the next 20 years with no money out-of-pocket. Now we are only $0.79 per month to SCE. There is a saving driving an electric car even if you do not have solar on your home, it is still less than paying for gas. What really surprised me was the combination of solar on our home and driving our all-electric Leaf. We found that driving the Leaf around town about 35 miles a day and charging at home with our solar only raised our electric solar bill by about $0.50 per month. I ask my SolarCity rep if I was missing something because it didn’t make any sense to me. He said yes, you are missing something, the SCE transmission charges which are 70% of everyone’s bill. He said once you start producing your own energy from solar at home, and not paying those transmission charges, you now see how little power you really need or use.
My recommendation for now, do not buy an electric car, lease one. Especially if you can write it off on your business. We are still in the VHS vs Beta phase of battery technology and 300 miles of range and more will be here soon, as in the next three years! Here is another option for range anxiety. We have recently noticed a growing number of people who don’t care what kind of car they have. If they are going on a long trip the cost of renting is so low they would rather rent a car for a long trip then put all the miles on their car also risking accidents and damage to their car. My last trip to Las Vegas was about $15 per day plus gas 2 tanks one there and one back for a total of about $200 from Santa Barbara round trip. Eventually electric cars will be less expensive to rent than gas because there is almost no maintenance. The future of transportation looks good and you might not even want or need an electric car that goes more than 100 miles. We don’t. We will just rent one.
All this really made me see how we have all been ripped off for that last 100 years to pay the price for GAS. As you can see in 2014 we are still fighting and killing people around the world so we can keep our price of gas down. I’ll pass on that and you should too! I love this country and our military personnel that help defend it. Unfortunately we have all been suckered into putting money in someone else’s pocket, not ours. We really need to wake up and help our self and the rest of the world! It’s time to KICK GAS and help others do the same.
Warren Buffett – my new best buddy! I will have to admit I had doubts when I heard Warren Buffett was investing big bucks in the Chinese BYD electric vehicles. Why wasn’t he investing in America like into Tesla or others here at home? When I came across this video of Topaz right here in San Luis Obispo CA it changed my mind. Warren Buffett through BHE has enough money to spread it around the world and do us all a favor. See why Why Warren Buffett Is Betting $30 Billion on Solar and Wind. Go for Warren Buffett. You Da Man!
