Retired PG&E’r here. Do you know if this new bill/law applies to propane or natural gas generators? With the numerous planned and unplanned outages in the hills a functional generator as well as solar is a must!new forum look/format SUCKS!!
the law mandates the arcb must create regulations and defintions by 2024. the sell of new engines is supposed to end with that. thn they will ban use. I am affected by PG&E outages. We have a Genny. use saw on the property have a quad. all will be affected. I have solar. Most people don't rthat you panels dont work when the grid id dowm If you have batteries they only charge with the genny if thepower is out. not the panels unless you are fully off grid. PG&E calls it an island i have to pay about $50 k to become "an island".
the claims that running a leaf blower for one hour creates as much emissions as driving a honda civiv froLos Angeles to Denfer. as long as bills are allowed to be written that include such easily refuted claiWeare all screwed.
Did I mention that the new forum look SUCKS!!!!
My father was heavy into steam power during the early 60's and was a member of the Steam Car Club of America. He developed a revolutionary boiler that he gave to the public by publishing the details. Your suggestion is right on as technology has advanced dramatically since the last Century.Time to re-invent the steam engine...
yea and the germans invented coal powered Kubelwagons... but, they still ended up moving most everything to the front using horses...... existence does not equate usefulness.My father was heavy into steam power during the early 60's and was a member of the Steam Car Club of America.

Oh, goodness. I wasn't talking about trains for a reason. Railroads were a given. This discussion is about small personal vehicles and motors off of rail lines. The German railway system had the crap bombed out of it and was not a viable tool for them with a few exceptions post overlord.Steam power was very prevalent in WWII, including the German railway network. My father was a mechanical engineer specializing in steam during that era.
Gets off freeway in Oakland near Airport. Turns down crime infested street. makes eye contact with "salesman" gives the "im not the police signal" - leaves with a little bag of internal combustion.I see a black market forming for new mowers and generators.......that's what happens when you BAN something.
