Battery Wednesday


New York is set to join the ranks of a small but growing number of pioneering states that are setting targets for energy storage as wind, solar and other renewable energies supply increasing amounts of power to their electric grids.

So far, only a few states have laws demanding that utilities meet targets for energy storage—including California, Oregon, Massachusetts and Nevada—and their targets vary. Massachusetts drew criticism today when it announced its first targets, which energy experts considered well below what will be needed.

New York’s legislature has now passed a bill that would join those states by asking its Public Service Commission to set targets for energy storage in New York by as early as January of next year.

“Anyone in the business knows storage is critical to making intermittent energy a reality. Because of this, New York has got to take a leadership role,” said Westchester Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, who co-sponsored the bill. She said she was confident that Gov. Andrew Cuomo would sign it.

    Pete, Sara, Nicholas and twin Nancy came over yesterday. Three out of 4 of them used the pool AND vacuumed it while they were inside. Easier to do that from inside the pool rather than outside.

    Bob’s computer is on its way out so he and Pete ordered a new one yesterday. He doesn’t need the “cat’s ass” of computers like I do, so it will be relatively cheap as CPUs go. A Dell for about $156. It will be Windows 10 but I’ll set it up like this machine where it boots up to a desktop and looks just like XP.

    Yeah, his machine was built by our favorite computer guys, just a cheap version, not designed for game-playing, etc. But talk about slowing down! Yikes. He stopped shutting it down at night, just left it on because it has been taking sooooo long to boot up. And the internet speed is half of what the master computer, mine, gets. His machine has always been slower on the internet, figured it was because he got the signal from the router plugged in at my machine. Shooting the signal across the room is bound to lose some speed, but now his machine is really slow, in everything it does.

    One of my Google headlines, Trump never had a plan for dealing with North Korea.”

    The story is in the Washington Post. The only headline the Post ever needs to type is, “Trump never had a plan for anything, still doesn’t and never will.” The guy is a bumpkin, he knows pretty much nothing about anything a president has to deal with PLUS he’s not interested in any of it and won’t try to learn anything either. He’s a creature of the moment, there is no past, there is no future just the right now.

    Now I guess I’ll go check up on the news, see what there is to piss me off this morning.

    Out to the optometrist’s office which is closed this afternoon. 😦 So immediately back to the Birch & Barley for a running total of 60 minutes; good time. Saw 2 pigeons together; does that make a kit of pigeons?
