Re: EV charging prices in Europe increase 500%

I've got a 7 yr. old 15 panel pv system in zip 93436 that pretty much handles my modest home and a Volt driven -20 mi./day. I'm on a good grid tie contract. With the generous rebates and credits, it's paid for its self and the Volt gives me a 2kw 120v back up power source that could keep us going fo...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

That makes sense to me.

An as time goes on and money gets freed up and becomes available, increase solar/wind and battery then decrease nuclear. While I'm not too hot on hydrogen but I do admit that it is useful for large mobile applications like planes, trains, boats and spaceships :wink: .

Re: Custom frame.

If you can make a decent weld or even braze, Craigslist is your friend. Buy an ok fork and components and have fun switching stuff around. With a little imagination and a right angle grinder you'd be surprised what you can make.

Re: Ebike Knowledge Probably Saved my Life

It looks like you got lucky! I had the same thing happen to a old phone that I use in the shop as a remote control. I was keeping it always on and always plugged in to a charger. I picked it up in order to change channels and noticed it was hot. After it cooled off I threw it in the outside trash an...

That's how you chose to word your question/statement? Requesting information? "How Is Cycle Analyst still in business? Worst customer support ever" Be careful, your wish might come true.

Wow! This sounds great. I can see you're been thinking about this for awhile. I'm in for a few $ now and will start a monthly donation when it gets set up. I know nothing about coding so won't be of use there. I can offer my time if it will help. I have owned, ran and sold a couple successful busine...

Whenever I am concerned about water getting in I just apply a liberal coat of Vaseline or silicone grease. WD40 is a water displacement and does a pretty good job of protecting stuff too.
