NYC’s Big Clean Energy Plan Is Under Attack From One-Time Advocate

  1. It is cheaper - wind, solar, hydro + geothermal means high availability and uptime

  2. The 'solution' is battery storage - with the advent of LFH and saltwater batteries, it is cheap, effective and safe

  3. Window mounted heat pumps work great, and don't require roof space

So, no to all.

Disclaimer: I work for a smart-grid company. But I'm very much involved in utility-scale solutions for these exact problems.

You are an electrical engineer - what is your field? Do you work on consumer electronics or are you actually involved in grid and power reliability? Because our clients include a bunch of utilities and we are moving massive amounts of battery, that will, in fact, precisely address the reliability issue.

Tl;dr 'No'
