The coming blackouts. Do Not say you were
not warned

Original Article

For regular readers of this site, today’s news will likely not come as a surprise, but much of the nation seems to remain unaware of it. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has released its latest reliability assessment for the summer of 2022 and, to put it mildly, the news is not good. In far too many states, the power grid is already nearly at full capacity, and in the next few months, that capacity will be exceeded. This isn’t a question of “if” or really even “when.” It’s just a fact. Industry experts know this and have been trying to sound the alarm for several years.

I live about 75 miles as the crow flies from a huge nuclear power plant, one of the most reliable and efficient of that type in the entire country. I think we'll be fine. If I lived in California, I'd already have a whole house standby generator like a Generac with a LARGE propane tank for it, enough for a 3 week run, at minimum. They really do want use back in the stone age.

This is narration on the Deep State's part. They are announcing it now to condition people. When the blackouts start they'll blame it on Russian Hackers. The Q posts had predicted this almost 4 years ago. The DS will do this because they'll no longer have control over the narrative. No Twitter to spread their message and Truth Social setting subscription records. (this is why Trump needed the vehicle to get the word/Truth out. But we're ready for it.

I just spent $1,000 on a new dual fuel 3500 running watts on propane electrical generator, 3-100’ extension cords, and propane tanks and I’m ready for whatever manufactured electrical blackouts they got coming.

Re #4, hope you included a large propane tank. And is that the new Generac dual fuel model I have heard about? dual fuel seems like a brilliant idea.

I decided against a generator. Loud, fuel costs add up and could be much higher or rationed or even disallowed in the future, smelly and limited use for relatively high price with no pay back. I'm going whole house solar and battery. Reduces my bill every month, unlimited energy from the sun, quiet, no reliance on fuel deliveries. Just works.

How can any sane person vote Democrat? This is deliberate sabotage of this country's ability to continue to operate normally. Destruction of our fuel development ability and deliberate overwhelming of our electrical grid. They obviously want riots and violence, and they believe that they now have the imported and domestic thugs to take over in such a circumstance. People, this time, better be ready to do what needs to be done to finally rid ourselves of these communists.

This is all by design. The voters better wake up in 2022 and 2024. When reality smacks them is the only way to get through to idiots. We have a generac whole house generator, it runs on natural gas. Its not loud and does not smell. It is super reliable, power goes out and within 5 seconds we are running of the generator. We have to get the oil changed once a year and the unit self cycles once a week. I wish I knew about Tesla's solar shingles when we built our home. They look good and aren't too much more than a high quality shingled roof.

There are a number of dual fuel (gas/propane) small generators available. We got one late last year when I was still on oxygen. NC ice storms can play havoc with power.

It's not just blue states. It costs money lots and lots of money to upgrade transmission lines and power generation. The problem is that public utilities commissions won't allow the electric companies to increase prices to cover the costs.

In western Colorado, Tri-State Generation & Transmission is planning to decommission its 1,300-megawatt coal-fired power plant in Craig Colorado by 2030 as mandated by Colorado's greenies. And there is no replacement plant. And lo and behold, Xcel Energy is now doing some arm-twisting in Colorado by force-feeding us into installing solar panels on our houses and at our own cost. There is some chance western Colorado will experience rolling blackouts this summer based on warnings from Xcel. The likelihood is much higher for 2023 because all eyes are on the hydroelectric plant below Lake Mead (or what is left of it) that may need to shut down due to lack of water. I bought a 3-kw generator for keeping our freezers and frig running in case the blackouts do happen. While I would not expect rolling blackouts to last more than a few hours at a time, I am prepared to generate my own power for several days, if necessary.

When companies are forced to take gigawatts off line because of the type of fuel they use, this is what you get. Voodoo energy can never meet the needs of the baseload.

I do not expect to be warned about coming blackouts. This is what I expect: That the losers in leadership expand the availability of electricity with currently existing technology. They have had over 2 years to do it --- and have done nothing, but add to the scarcity. In Texas, our governor has grown silent, having done nothing. Added, I am seeing articles that Texas has had more than a million illegals cross our border, while our governor has shipped 90 of them to DC. I am not impressed.

Meanwhile, the idiots in DC are pushing everyone to buy electric cars and for schools to buy electric buses. #9, we have the same thing, purchased a few years ago after 2 hurricanes in 2 consecutive years. Our natural gas is piped in so no need for a tank. It cost some bucks but was worth it the next time we lost power.

It won't be pretty when it happens. Looking back, when New York and most of the northeast had a massive power failure in the mid 1960s there was virtually no crime committed and citizens waited patiently for the lights to come back on. In Biden's America I wouldn't be surprised if there was widespread looting, murder, and mayhem.

A 8000 - 10,000 watt generator will power a typical home with A/C. Propane conversion kits are available for most generators. For a several-day blackouts, you really need a 250 - 300 gallon propane tank. It's cheaper fuel than gasoline. Generators will run about 5 to 6 hours on a tank of gasoline. With gasoline, you will be filling up the tank with 5 gallons + every 5 - 6 hours depending on the load.

The move to solar....THAT's what they want, isn't it? Having had a vacation home with solar power (off the grid) since the early 1990s, I know exactly what it it about. I designed, installed and have operated that system for about 30 years. The last thing I'd want in my home where grid power is available is a solar system.

With regard to back-up or whole-house generators wired into to the home’s breaker box, the key metric is the unit’s duty cycle, which is the rated percentage of run time. Even a General 24,000 Watt system, fueled by a 1,000 gallon propane tank, has no more than a 60% run time. Portable generators require a lot of heavy gauge extension cords, which can power some lights, small appliances, and keep frozen or refrigerated food from spoiling but only for relatively short periods of time. For 99% of American households, there is no good substitute for a healthy grid.

I know, #21. In our area of W TX, we figure ERCOT’s claims that all is well are about as believable as Jen Psaki at this point. Abbott will stay what he always has been but unfortunate for the state. We had a mighty good leader ready to fight for Texas in Colonel West but the Bush-Rove folks won - simple as that. We have prepared much to get off grid out at the retirement homestead. It has been so interesting!! We can be up there with our forest for the wood stove heat and cooking, well with manual pumps, two Berkeys, solar panels and I began collecting manual kitchen appliances to replace coffee maker, food processor, big mixer. I do have my Vita-Mix though. We are gardening and looking on all as an adventure. Our reliance on our faith, keeping our sense of adventure and a hearty wholesome sense of humor can get a family through an awful lot.

There is “no way” Florida will ever support the World Health Organization’s (W.H.O.) global pandemic treaty, Florida Gov.

It was widely believed that Trump was going to cruise to re-election in early 2020. The economy was roaring, and the Democrats’ absurd efforts to impeach him failed to kill his momentum. But when the pandemic hit, there were massive changes to election laws, many of which were done illegally, and many say the changes made our elections more susceptible to fraud. However, the pandemic is essentially over now, and Democrats are heading into the 2022 midterms in a terribly weak position.

The world population checks in at just a little under 7.9 billion people. Of that number, Europe has identified 100 cases of monkeypox and the United States has identified...two cases (out of a population of roughly 330 million people). Nevertheless, Joe Biden is already hard at work ratcheting up the fear. Based on the information available, though, we probably don’t need to worry and this should not turn into a government power grab, complete with election control. Preliminarily, Dr. Robert Malone has written a great post about monkeypox (“Truth versus Fearporn”), from which I’ve gleaned a lot of my facts about the disease.
