Welcome to the RIB Joint. A blog discussing science issues with an emphasis on health physics and agnotology.
We'll try to keep 'em honest.
So dig in!
It's a good beginning, but it's important to understand the current limitations: if all houses were like this, you would still be burning fossil fuels in winter when the solar panels are under snow, and you would be dumping electric power in summer as the grid is saturated. Storage technologies are then definitely needed but immature today.This not meant as criticism: I remember how in the 1970's, wind power cost over 30 cents per kWh generated. Now it's down to 8 cents and below. This is due largely to their construction having become an industrial activity with economies of scale and the learning curve. The same will undoubtedly happen with storage once large markets open up.
Yup, good points!
