Re: Powering The Earth
Turbine power of all types should be in use all over the world, but especially here in the US. Hydro-turbines make especially good sense. My guess is that if we had turbines in all of the rivers in the US, we could supply more than 100% of the US's electrical needs with them exclusively. Harnessing the power of the ocean (and the moon, since its the reason for tides) would obviously produce many times more power.

A watt saved is better than a watt generated, since it always costs less than 10% as much, and can cost as little as 1%.
V=volt, A=ampere, Ah=ampere hour, Wh= watt hour, VOC=open circuit voltage, ISC=short circuit current, VMPP=voltage @ max power, IMPP=current @ max power, BTW=by the way, your=belongs to you, you're=you are, too=in addition to, two=1+1, to=towards
