BC SOLAR SCAM (short version in pictures)

I AM TRYING TO STOP THE BLEED OF PUBLIC MONEY FOR SOLAR IN BC

Above the annual monthly Kootenay River water flow, Orange is excess water overflowing from spring runoff in April through High summer water levels.

Above an actual Nelson solar system showing month by month annual power almost all of it made when we don't need it 


This picture of the Nelson community solar garden around March as the days become longer, snow begins to melt and solar power begins to be made, and spring runoff is about to fill our reservoirs, overflow, flooding occurrs we can't use all the water for power why solar is worthless.  Who installs solar panels so the front row shades the back?  Nelson did.



Daily consumption peaks at breakfast and evenings, solar midday, out of sync with need.

Why did this city put solar panels at the dam?  Almost all annual solar power is made in summer when we aren't even using all the water, we need power in winter when our reservoirs are being drawn down, solar d…

THE GREAT BC SOLAR SCAM

BC wastes Millions of Public money for Solar

(See the short version in pictures)  click HERE


Fleecing the public spending millions in BC on this  greenwashing fantasy.  Nelson is a great example of this public waste of money.  This applies to all of BC.

Nelson is the only city in western Canada with its own hydroelectric generation making clean green waterpower for 2c/kWh and selling for 12c/kWh bringing the city a huge income.

The city put 60kW of solar panels at the dam, the mayors green vote.

Every kW of public money for solar panels is lost income from selling cleaner greener waterpower.

Solar power cannot be stored it must be used when made, intermittent, unreliable and virtually nothing in winter when we need power the most as our water reservoirs, our batteries, draw down.

It comes down to a simple concept, CAPACITY FACTOR (CF).  If a hydroelectric plant makes power 24/7/365 its CF is 100%.

Years of publicly available BC data for solar shows solar CF at little better than 10%.
