    Indonesia to purchase geothermal energy - and solar

    Yeppers...clearly in light of this Nuclear plant, along with what I said yesterday, the need for portable Solar with battery back-up to get power fired back up quickly is a huge necessity. Can't rely on diesel generators when fuel can be contaminiated. Clearly portable solar with back up power is not that common b/c it isn't there yet and it sure wasn't in Haiti.

    • moose,
      there are dozens of companies around the world selling what you are talking about and hundreds offering batteries with solar panels. they just aren't very cheap.
      you have any idea what a 100watt solar panel costs? 10,000's of solar panels are in use in the 3rd world, many with a car battery. if you didn't see them installed in haiti you didn't look very hard and it wasn't because they aren't readily available.

      • There is a nuclear plant on the verge of a meltdown, where is it all to get enough power to cool the reactors, should be pretty simple to air drop something in..... That's all I'm saying. It clearly needs to be cheap and on smaller scales. If ZBB were smart they would meeting up with the Nuclear Regulator Agency since there will be backlash in the US over Nuclear Power b/c of this and arm the power plants with rugged enclosed back up power not necessitated to work based on fuel.
