The laws on fuel as CORRUPTED in this country that you CANNOT legally make ethanol for fuel UNLESS it has a REQUIRED percentage of gasoline added to it. The excuse is that it is a "safeguard" to make sure it is not sold as booze, as per the Alcohol, Drug and Tobacco portion of the fossil fuel government. But we know that is BALONEY. It's just one more hidden subsidy for the fossil fuel government profit over planet welfare queens.

As you said, it's all about the Benjamins.

Amazing revelations in that posting Agelbert. Pains one to think these guys are still running the show.

I'm wondering when they're going to move on and take over the solar industry? Just like them, with their water boys in government, to start charging us to use the Sun?


Good point. There is ample evidence that they want to put bureaucratic fascist regulatory meter on solar power. It's really and old colonialist style modus operandi going back to the Dutch, English and Spanish Empires. The difference now is that we-the-people are the targets, not some native tribes.

As you know, the colonial MO was to prohibit finished industrial goods from being made in the colonies while the "mother" country imports all the raw materials from skins to make saddles with to ore for finished metal products to quality wood for furniture (and so on). The finished goods were then sold back to the people in the colonies for exorbitant prices.

It is mind boggling to think it was illegal to make a saddle in South America for centuries after the European invasion. It was just as hard (and illegal) to get mills going in the English colony we now know as the USA to make cloth from cotton and hemp. Making a clock in the colonies was very difficult because it was considered a "finished" industrial product. People actually made them with (illegally) wooden parts. The accuracy was, of course, not so great.

What does all this have to do with solar power? The LAW, like in colonial times, is used for the purpose of fleecing the people and defending the cartels (in this case as applied to solar energy). The power companies will push for, and win, the right to put giant solar farms here and there to centralize the energy. THAT will cost us because they will then have their typical duplicitous excuses for jacking up rates on a regular basis due "maintenance costs".     


At the same time, local ordinances will make it increasingly expensive to get permits for panels on your property, require a NEW roof for your house if your roof is more than X amount of years old and other economic hurdles make it more and more expensive for your to just get started. THEN they will require some annual inspection by a "designated" ass hole that will charge a fee to "make sure" your solar panel setup is not afire hazard" (or an eye sore, or "violates" some ordinance, etc).

To add insult to injury, the LAND the power company gets to put massive solar farms on will be subsidized by we-the-people. WE will also NOT be able to deduct our solar maintenance costs from our taxes because we "aren't a business" while the power company profits from subsidies AND tax deductions on maintenance costs.

The only upside is that fossil fuels will FINALLY be gradually phased out as the overwhelming evidence of how in-your-face expensive they are in comparison to renewable energy continues to cause businesses and power companies to break ranks and abandon support for and investment in fossil fuel industry crooks.

Who knows? We might even survive all this colonial MO through clever "adaptation".  ;)

But it looks pretty hopeless right now.
