I'm afraid it is actually quite simple... the good old USA that is supposed to be the land of the free and home of the brave... and some kind of
cradle for innovation...
I can definitively say that is just a whole lot of nonsense!
The USA is TOTALLY corrupt.
It's rotten from the inside.
There is absolutely nothing standing in the way of TRUE innovation in ALL AREAS of energy (and house) technology...
Ceptin... 'They' won't let it in.
The entire paradigm is actively massaged to prevent ANY type of real advancement from simply getting implemented...
There are literally THOUSANDS of ways this is enforced.
It affects everything from basic building designs, energy generation, energy conservation, hot water heating, space heating, water recycling, water
I'll pick just a couple of specific areas so you can see the manner in which the TOTALLY FICTITIOUS 'scarcity paradigm' is enforced...
Or more accurately... just shoved down peoples throats!
Let's talk power generation. I live in Washington state.
In Washington, if you are clever enough to create/install a power generating system... The utility companies force the do it yourself to sell at
wholesale prices, but are forced to buy power at full retail.
Let's say that you are REALLY clever, have a nice setup and you manage over the course of the year to generate more power than you consume as a
Instead of paying the sum that you are owed... They just forgive themselves that debt.
YOU GET NOTHING.
So to summarize you went to all the trouble and effort and you do not get dime one.
Washington sells themselves as one of the premiere 'GREEN' states... The reality of it is the State and the utility companies get the 'green'.
Next example... Point of use and/or gas fired tankless water heaters. GE was selling some simply brilliantly engineered tankless water heaters.
My personal favorite put out 9.5 gallons a minute! (The average shower uses something like 1.5 gallons a minute
). This puppy saves you basically a
suitcase full of money every year!
And it even had an optional remote control for adjusting the temperature.
I personally estimate the typical household as spending 60% of their energy bill on heating hot water.
So it is serious money.
And it cost about the same INSTALLED as a conventional water heater. (Less than $1,000
It became simply no longer available.
Actually it is... (it is the exact same unit) hidden in a different enclosure, different 'manufacturer'. With installation (by 'authorized'
dealers/installers), it is typically somewhere between $5,000-6,000... Just out of reach of the average household.
If you understand ANYTHING about manufacturing, you would already understand that this fabulous water heater could be put in the consumers hands when
made on a large scale for something around $400. With LOTS of profit to go around.
This type of technology is SO advanced that it should already be installed in every household in America.
It would represent a TRULY SIGNIFICANT savings in resource consumption.
You will probably NEVER see it on that scale... cuz it would reduce the CASH FLOW to the utility companies.
So on to solar cells.
If you follow cell phone battery design, there was a quantum shift in storage capabilities (size and capacity) of cell batteries... using amorphous
I'm told the same technology was also implemented in solar cells, freeing it from the horrible archaic and rigid design limits of convention
This thin cell approach is basically supposed to allow you to just nail continuous sheets of it to ANY surface...
It's not a technological reason it isn't everywhere and freeing you from the 'power grid'... And saving the environment, yada, yada yada!
It's what is viewed as a 'disruptive' technology...
Thus you will NEVER see it.
Yeah... Disruptive to Big Energy's cash flow...
(If you guys want more... I was just getting warmed up.)
Can't have the WAGE SLAVES getting loose from the moorings... Can we?
