  • Solar Costs Getting Harder To Cut

    12/15/2010 11:56:54 AM PST · 21 of 29
    Andrewksu to ClearCase_guy
    Solar/wind are only a small part of being off grid. If you have a traditionally built home, dropping $20K plus is not a problem, if you design and build specifically for off grid, your system costs come down into the $5k range, which is about how much it costs to run a power line on rural properties.

    Heating is usually not the problem, but cooling can't be done with a wood stove and requires quite a bit of energy if you aren't careful about how you build the house.

    My wife and I are both architects and are planning such a home now. We are also helping a few other families to plan their off grid or very low draw grid homes now. If anyone is interested, freep mail me and I can offer some help.

  • Stealth IRS changes mean millions of new tax forms

    Andrewksu to Jack Hydrazine
    Not sure about the 2/3rds, probably 40-50 though.

    The issues are separate, tax on one hand spending on the other. I am all for cutting spending back to the constitutionally allowed roles of the government. It is amazing to think about how much we have tread on the constitution and how much of what our government does is on the wrong side of that.

    My argument for the fair tax stands whether spending is cut or not, HOWEVER, I think the fair tax will encourage voters to hold their representatives to account for the crazy spending. By seeing and feeling the whole tax load on every purchase, people will be more apt to get angry. Right now many don't see all of the money that they pay. They don't see the increased cost of products due to corporate taxes. The Fair Tax will not increase what you spend on taxes, but will make it painfully obvious how much we have been spending to support these clowns and freeloaders.

    With regards to them not going for it, they better get the clue fast. We must gather our forces, convince our friends, neighbors and families and DEMAND that they change it. IF we gather a majority of people that want these changes, but the politicians ignore our demands, they must go. By election preferably, but ultimately the government must represent us or it is our duty to change it. I think if you looked into the FT a bit more, you might come to my side, but we are already on the same side with regards to spending and the position on our out of control government.

    How can you insure a Flat tax won’t be manipulated? Flat taxes still require you (and businesses)to file the evermore invasive income filings, detailing every source of revenue and expenditure. None of the governments’ business! Flat taxes still tax behavior that we want to encourage (earning, saving, & investing). Flat taxes leave the IRS with full power.

    The Fair Tax is ONLY levied on NEW items at point of CONSUMER purchase. It does not tax earnings, savings, or investments. Does not tax used items or used property. Does not require you to file any earnings report. Does not steal money from your paycheck before you see it. It cuts the IRS by 90%, with their activity being directed towards verifying business sales tax filings.

    Fair tax also neuters politicians, since they cannot give state or federal tax credits to corporations in exchange for support.

    Please look into the Fair Tax more thoroughly before dismissing it.

    It is fitting that the building was $100 million over budget, a year late, ultra green, but can’t get LEED (green rating) accredited, and absolutly uncomfortable for almost all employees.

    Elevator doesn’t stop at all floors to encourage (or in their Cass Sunstein language “nudge”) fat workers to take the stairs.

    No heating or air conditioning except for executive offices.

    Daylight at every workstation (workers have to use umbrellas to fend off blinding hot sun).

    Cafeteria was placed in far off building to force people to walk there.

  • Household Solar Power – Don’t Believe The Hype

    Andrewksu to thinking

    Trackers are not necessarily the best way to go, in the south trackers may pay for themselves, but in the north, it’s more cost efficient to have a manual adjustment only for the seasons. Newer panels work better in cloudy, and partly shady conditions.

    If going off grid, the best solution is to use a wind/solar hybrid, little bit of both. When wind is high, sun is probably unavailable, and vice versa. If you are building out in the sticks, you can save $5000-$20,000+ in costs to run power lines, so it starts to justify itself in those situations.

    If you have access to a stream or a pond with some vertical drop, micro hydro is the best bang for the buck. Plus you can use old alternators and do a very inexpensive DIY project.

    Basically it’s not that great for making you feel warm and fuzzy or if you want something free. It is quite doable for those looking to be self sufficient.

    Quite a stupid idea if you ask me, way to turn people against small biz and into the arms of FEDZILLA. A more effective approach would be for small business owners to organize together, then end withholdings and stop remitting taxes to the IRS.

    It would take big brass ones, and coordination of many businesses and individuals, but a tax revolt is the only way to go. That monthly revenue stream being cutoff would bring DC to a halt quick. It might also bring retaliation, but many are expecting that anyways.

    No, it means I am a newbie, with only bookish experience. My girlfriend and I are architects and are currently designing our off grid home. I have worked on several projects, but have yet to live under the roof.

    Good point on stewardship. Matter of fact, there is a quote from Voltaire about not losing a connection with nature and how it provides for us.

    “We must cultivate our own garden. When man was put in the garden of Eden he was put there so that he should work, which proves that man was not born to rest.” There is more to it, but it fits somewhat.

    I always reflect on my grandfather and how he made the most of what he had, and would not pollute or mistreat his environs, for it provided for him.

    Actually, solar is effective, but not without considering increasing efficency in other areas of the home. I am designing off the grid small homes, not for the sake of being green, but for self sufficiency.

    A combination of wind and solar on a properly designed home will free you from the bonds of utilities.

    Some sacrifices are made but the payback is worth it.

    This obesity claim is bogus, the measurements they use are not appropriate. They determine obesity via the BMI test, which is a chart of height and weight, with no account of muscle or bone structure.

    In college, according to my BMI I was on the verge of obesity at 6’3” and 200lbs. In reality I was 9% body fat (9 point caliper test) and was in excellent shape.

    I am now the same height and weight, but do have a few pounds to drop, but would have to be less than 190lbs to be “normal”. Not possible, I am a large framed guy and carry muscle, I would have to be deathly ill to hit that weight.

    Point is that it is another gubment tool to dictate diet and lifestyle guidelines to the peons.

    You do recognize that the law considers bikes to be a vehicle and they have the same rights to access all roads except interstate highways?

    If you can’t stay focused enough to avoid cyclists, you won’t be able to avoid motorcycles, pedestrians, a kid chasing a a ball in the street, animals, etc.

    I ride and avoid high traffic and squirrelly roads, not because i shouldn’t be there, but because many drivers are inept and cannot take enough time from their cell phone conversation to effectively drive the car.

    As a car enthusiast, I am dismayed by the quality of drivers on the road. I have had one of my project cars destroyed by a inept driver. We need to implement the German driving tests and regulations. The tests are difficult and expensive, so you take them seriously. If you cannot pass, you cannot drive.

    The BMI is absolutely worthless. Tour riders are not muscle bound by any means, strong legs, but usually birdlike otherwise. Many athletes of that sort can run close to a dangerously low body fat %, if they show at over on BMI, it means 0.

    At 6’3” I used to be 9% body fat and 225lbs, with a BMI that said i was near obesity! I am now 215lbs, 19% body fat, and have a lower, but still over weight BMI.

    Body fat calcs are really easy, and you can get a scale now for $50, there is no reason not to use more accurate measurement, other than to promote this farce.
