Shouldn't the cost just get cheaper, the more you sell? I have to ask... What will happen when we 'discover' an unlimited easy-to-generate energy supply?


California is taking a cooling off period after generating too much energy from the sun


Quote:
after a building sprint that saw its share of solar rise from 0.5% of generation in 2010 to 10% last year, the state may be taking a break following two new production records this month.

Greentech Media reports there’s little prospect of big new purchases of solar, or other renewable energy sources for that matter, by utilities. With investor-owned utilities all well ahead of state targets of 25% renewables by 2020 (and more distributed generation coming online), no new renewable capacity was procured last year and no plans to contract more (although plenty is in the pipeline, and homes and businesses are still adding more). “They’re basically saying, ‘There’s too much going on; we don’t know what to do, so we’re not going to do anything for a while,'” Jan Smutny-Jones of the Independent Energy Producers Association told Greentech.

When you claim you have discovered an "unlimited easy to generate energy supply" you will find that it is a perpetual motion scam.


Remember:

You can't break even
You can't get out of the game.
