"Annual load a provided by an intermittent renewable whether wind or or solar so people could put panels on their homes or they could the community could heavily little micro renewable farmed say solar farm. So the only exception to this currently in what may become the model. The interesting to see what happens would be. Oh, the lake so Colville lake is a very small community. It some above the Arctic circle. But it's still within the tree line. And they're better one hundred fifty population there generators had long since passed their life, and so the par corporation decided to invest significant dollars, and they put in a hundred and twenty kilowatts of solar over two years invested in of lithium ion batteries, and sink them in with current technology generators. So they basically are running that community off the batteries with solar filling charging the batteries. And when the solar cannot fully charged batteries than the generators kick in. So that's a really interesting application and appears to be going. Very very well. Yeah. So how well do photovoltaics work up north? You'll have access in the summer and not enough in the winter. Just just going gonna backtrack to the previous question than if we could please. Yeah. Part of the challenge that I think the northwest. Territories is the canary in the coal mine on with renewables is that often trying to integrate new technologies with owed technologies? And so the old technology is just think diesel engine that keeps just chucking away at whatever speed. And it's there when you need it. But it's kind of smelly noisy and people don't really like them. And then along comes this new star, fangled technology. That's quiet in just sits there in a dozen business and the new technology in the old technology. Don't like each other a lot, and I sort of the floss Affi runs down to the mechanics. I think in this case. And the the amount of money that's been spent on the sole technologies of people have this idea that we after we are all the money that we spent on these things will run them until their debt. And and so there's this philosophical debate around in a hutch solar can bring into a system without disrupting our old technology as opposed to saying how much solar can we max out on? And let's not worry about this old technology because it's on its last legs. Anyway. And those kind of debates I think sort of are happening in boardrooms not only in the northwest. Territories. I think they're happening across the United States where you have strong competition for renewables that want to get onto the grid and existing systems. Additional old-fashioned smelly messy looting systems that refused to die. And we face that challenge up here in buttons because we have thirty three micro grids. This is the perfect place with his ambi- apocalypse because. Other communities. We can go to if worse comes to worse in each one has its own power generating system, but philosophically what's happening with the disaggregation of knowledge information into smaller and smaller units is that the north again is is a precursor to what you'll see in other jurisdictions where you won't have centralized power production till have distributed power generation in the north. It's just by virtue are geography and having spread entities, but it's forseeable in large urban centers where you have many many micro producers who are selling their electrons into the electric grid and getting paid for it and doing quite well by thank you. So while the north is sort of far and remote and seems to I think too many people were bit fact words, perhaps the challenges were facing both on the climate front in term. Of the heating happening ears. Learn faster challenges we're facing incorporating technologies with old technology is is going to happen down south as well. And the lessons we're learning here. I think will be will will pay well for folks down south as they begin to adapt to new reality. Yeah. That's a very good point. We when we have an interconnected power system..

Matter of fact, hoping on does that you see how you would think he would Newsom should undo that stopped taking the gas tax money. And I'm not talking about the gas tax. We tried to beat with propsects. I'm talking about the climate change legislation from a couple of years ago. We your gas prices. Is going to go up by was it seventy something sense in the game. Yeah. That money. He should stay. No more is going to to the ice rail. Matter of fact, he should follow through with that. Because if he's saying we're just going to build this. But they're going to need it. They're not gonna be able to build this one segment without that money. They don't have enough. No, they don't have enough. So they're going to need the money. They borrowed from the proposition. They're going to need the federal money that Trump wants to take back, and they're going to need the greenhouse gas money that Brown rigged with that extra gas tax. They need all three sources to to have a chance, right? And they're likely gonna fall short anyway. Because all this stuff is not only way over budget in the moment. It's going to continue to go way over budget. It's an extremely badly conceived idea somebody summed it up really, well, we get to that in a few minutes, but it is so badly conceived and so badly executed that there's no way out here. And I think. I think if you're if you're an adult I mean, a lot of these activists, especially these environmental activists there like silly little children and they're looking for a daddy. And daddy said we can't go on vacation this year. But he says we're really really going to go next year. We promised we're going to go next year. It's like kid dad's cheating on mom. Okay. They're going to be divorced in six months. There's no vacation next year. You're going to be living in an apartment. That's what these people sound like just little kids looking for approval that did this daddy really like my idea. Look at this idea. I have daddy is for high speed rail. It's dead. It's dead. And I didn't think were said to Bakersfield will be built because it's too ludicrous. It's too stupid. And the only defense Newsom has. And he says unless you shut the agency, Dan, they're gonna keep spending money something we'll go up there. But it's not gonna be anything usable or well. First of all, there's no money to operate it. And this is where we're living in a normal media world that would be a headline. Where's the money to operate? This thing. There's gonna be no customers they weren't gonna have customers many customers for LA to San Francisco. You're going to have zero customers Bakersfield said so three and a half billion dollars came from Obama. We're going to play you first the clip from his state of the state speech were Gavin Newsom, basically says that's another reason we're gonna do that segment because we don't. Want to give the money back to Trump? Let's listen, abandoning the high speed rail entirely means we will have wasted billions and billions of dollars with nothing but broken promises partially Bill commitments and lawsuits to show for it. And with all due respect, I have no interest in sending back three and a half billion dollars of federal funding that was allocated to this project to President Donald Trump that that fundamentally would have to happen. And we just walked away. So meanwhile, last night Trump tweeted out California's been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the federal government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back. Now whole project is a in quotes green disaster. And he's right. It is it's a green fraud a green hopes and a green disaster. What was on the ballot? Was we were gonna get for thirty three billion San Francisco. The Los Angeles San Francisco to Sacramento, that's what the proposition promise and San Francisco, two hours and forty minutes that was the whole point of high speed rail it now it's supposed to be over four hours, which means nobody's gonna take it because you can get you go on a plane in fifty five minutes, and you're still going to get there quicker, even if you account for going through security. Yeah. Every every day after excuses. Well, if you add it all up, you've got gotta drive to the airport. You have to go through security and baggage. And then you you come. Out of the airport. You gotta go pick up. Your baggage. Hold on. You're driving to a train station to you're driving out of the train station. All right. You're waiting for the train. You're going to be standing there a half hour beforehand and all we need is one terrorist attack. And you're going to have the same TSA security lines for the trains as well. So just just stop it. There's no there's no it's gonna take far longer to take a train, then a point. So there's a federal audit coming in that audit may decide that they want the money back, especially since it's coming from the Trump administration. So new some tweeted out last night fake news. We're building high-speed rail connecting the central valley and beyond beyond. This is California's money allocated by congress for this project. We're not giving it back. Well, yes, if you breach the terms of the money, they can take back. That's the purpose of the audit. The train is leaving the station better get on board. And then in parentheses always a real wit to also desperately searching for some wall money question. More. Question. Mark question, Mark. That's a real funny joke in San Francisco, what you said the wall, there's a much better public investment than this dopey high-speed rail ever was by a billion miles. And it's the terms of the useful. You have you have to walk on the wall, you'd probably get someplace faster than high speed rail. You have you have to build according to the terms of the agreement, and if you don't the money gets recalled, and there's a there's a deadline you have to spend money. That's right. You have to get it done at a certain time. They'd have to spend an enormous amount per day to keep up with the deadline. Yes, they have to spend an amount of money per day. That has never been spent in the history of public works projects. Running is impossible to spend that much money. Right. Even for idiot idiot, California government officials they can't spend the money that fast. So there's going to be all kinds of. There's going to be all kinds of. What's points of action, right? When Trump's administration wants the money back. They're going to list ABCD ES and say here are six violations of the agreement and all six violations trigger us getting the money back. It's. Newsom is just talking tough to Trump because people in San Francisco, get wetting their pants whenever somebody insults. Trump. But. The audience not Trump. It's the agreement that was signed by the federal government as a whole under Obama and the high speed rail commission and the state of California there's a specific agreement there. What Newsome is proposing likely violates major provisions that agreement not to mention that the whole high speed rail is filled with corruption and incompetence. And we went there was there was a state audit. That said this thing is a disaster. There's a federal audit going on. Now, it's going to come to the same conclusion that it's a disaster that's going to trigger. What they call the callback provision where the Trump administration could legally demand the three and a half billion back at Newson doesn't pay it'll go to court and the court will say you must pay back. I know we're going to court and that'll be another two years. But right when we come back, I said there was crossover, and it is high speed rail crossing over into something else. We talk about many times on the John and Ken show. We'll talk about that. Plus the times did like an autopsy bullet train went from peak. California innovation to the project from hell is a couple of good nuggets in here worth discussing coming up. John and Ken KFI. Debra Mark has been in California could.
