I guess the age of Coal is just about over as more and more of these are built, with the rise of global temperatures and desertification, in some countries these also could start to replace hydroelectric dams over time.

You're a glass half-empty kinda guy, aren't ya?

The reason I'm sad the company is private, is because I can't INVEST IN THE COMPANY AND PROFIT.






Oh. Are those crickets I hear now?

duh

Well here's a suggestion for the future: write out what you mean.

It isn't as if you've never expressed anti-capitalist ideas before now is it?

Ah. You meant "private" as in it's not publicly traded. That throws off a lot of people.

We call them private in the investing world. smile


Hence private equity funds which hold shares of private companies.

with temperatures rising worldwide, glaciers are melting faster and faster and they feed the rivers on which those hydroelectric dams rely.

the effects of global warming in Latin America are now being factored in specially in Brazil which relied until recently mostly in power generated by hydroelectric dams, wind and solar power share is rising faster than ever before in Brazil.

More water feeding the rivers feeding the hydro plants would make the plants able to generate more power, if anything. If the additional water is more than they need or can use, that can be bypassed. I'm not seeing a reason there, to shut down hydro plants.

More wind and solar is fine, if they make sense for the given circumstances. Diversifying sources of power for the grid is a good thing to do. Hydroelectric power is the original form of "green" electrical generation. Hydro was green long before being green was cool.

I didn't go look for data on a yearly total. Everything has trade-offs.

I like the molten salt design allowing it to generate power 24/7. A lot of the Photovoltaic plants do not include storage.

Kind lf curious what kind of maintenence needed to keep those panels clear to be absorbing at good efficiency. Not sure if there would be a lot of sand accumulations in that region or not.
