    That link took me to a "prepper" food site. Already got that covered. Batteries in the bunker would be nice, though.

      Hit the top line beginning with Tesla Bill.

      I must be getting an ad- it tells me about assault rifles in quantity on a budget..... I know that's not something you advocate

      Got it. I know there's a market for the car battery arrays- people use them for.... whatever. It is the future. Solar to your own power storage facility. I was hoping in Tx. i could get a waiver for a small-ish reactor in my backyard, but people have such a bad perception of nuclear power.

    What could possibly go wrong with lots of people having a small nuclear reactor in their backyard?

      See, reactionary comment. MEP, we've got Indian Point upriver right now, so I'd rather have control of my own. There is one at UT, at the science research center -not part of the main campus- i was told it's a small thing that is used for some kind of experiments. Then again, that's what they say about Plum Island. Back to the bunker.

    Give it another ten years or so and it might meet the expectations.

      Cheaper than this!

        Is that an orgasmatron?

        Actually my consultant, Tim Marutani is using one of those to power his system. He does use the grid to charge it up and then IIRC, he gets about 6-7 hours of power for his system. (Not long enough for the Ring Cycle, but fine for most people.) I have had a Tesla battery pack for over three years - it's 85Kwh and takes me most of the way from SF to LA on one charge (have to stop for lunch and a free fill up on the way.) Actually the new battery pack has two potential benefits. First you can store up excess solar energy to use on cloudy days or during power outages or second you can charge up the battery pack in the middle of the night, when the utility rates are the lowest (and the demand is the lowest) and use the power in mid-day when the demand and rates are highest

        Actually Columbia engineering school used to have a very, very small reactor on campus. You can imagine the communities reaction when they found out about that in the '70s. Imagine a nuclear reactor in the middle of Manhattan.

          I'm hardly an expert, but if you look up what the university reactors are, they seem to be small and relatively safe- it has the acronym TRIGA, and apparently, if the core temp goes nuts, reactivity drops. The history of water cooled reactors is interesting- they worked great for submarines, and Admr. Rickover was very influential in getting them developed. The civilian side of the industry was tooled for them already- and though they apparently didn't make the most sense on land, or for civilian use, were more quickly deployed to proliferate the boom in civilian power stations back in the day. There's a pretty good book about all the accidents and what caused them- almost all human error- not surprising, I guess, but in many cases, it was bypassing or over-riding built in fail safes. I'm not a strong advocate for the use of it, but the history of it all is quite fascinating.

          Exactly, that's what the engineering school had. But logic and emotion rarely mix.
