Good News! Peru to provide free solar power to the poor

On a day when I read about a massive new oil field in Australia capable of supplying as much oil as Saudia Arabia —

This massive discovery has put the Saudis into a panic

— I think to myself, is there any hope? Or will we just scarf all that oil up too, continue to heat the planet up even more and even longer with our addiction to the Military/Pharmaceutical/Medical/Surveillance/Corporate Governmental INDUSTRIAL Complex and put off the day of reckoning to the third generation rather than the second?

On the other hand, according to OPEC, it takes three to ten years to develop an oil field. That’s three to ten years of transition that we could be making to renewable energy sources, and, as usual, South America is leading the way, this time combining solar energy with social equity.

Those of us who talk about “peak oil” also speak of a “hard” or “soft” landing. Let’s hope we can create a soft landing. Of course, this kind of talk doesn’t count on ETs to save us with free energy; nor does it mention all the tinkerers in garages busy with all sorts of free or nearly-free energy inventions that then get bought up by giants and put on the shelf or their inventors assassinated . . .

Solar power in PeruPeru has initiated a new solar panel program that will provide electricity to more than 2 million of its poorest residents, Don Lieber over at Planetsave has reported.Currently, only 66% of Peru’s 24 million people has access to electricity, according to the country’s Energy and Mining Minister Jorge Merino. By 2016, the plan is to provide electricity to 95% of residents through The National Photovoltaic Household Electrification Program.“This program is aimed at the poorest people, those who lack access to electric lighting and still use oil lamps, spending their own resources to pay for fuels that harm their health,” he said.

The first phase will install 1,601 solar panels in the Contumaza province, enough to power 126 communities throughout Cupisnique, San Benito, Chilete, Tantarica, Yonan, San Luis, and Contai. The second phase of the project will involve 12,500 PV systems to provide 500,000 households, about 2 million people, with free electricity. The overall cost will be around $200 million.

Peru has incredible access to sunlight, so this is the perfect way to take advantage of natural resources while providing a valuable service to residents of all income levels. Makes you wonder why more countries can’t do the same, doesn’t it?

  1. Lockheed Martin Skunk Works did something I’ve never seen them do before. The announced
    (video http://tinyurl.com/b5ctqgo ) they are engaged in producing a cold fusion generator and shooting for 2017 delivery).

    Consider the source, The Skunk Works. These people hold so many secrets that I assume they are the primary recruiting source of scientists to enter government service off the books, in black-ops. How many whistleblowers have we seen that come out of Lockheed Martin Skunk Works? Zero.

    Skunk Works is sending a shot across the bow of policy wonks just in time for the 2016 US Presidential Election Cycle. Under pain of death, they would not do this unless it has been cleared and approved at a very high level, way above the Office of President. I’ve been trying to list reasons they are doing this. My list is short:

    — We want Cold Fusion R&D money. So talk about this during the next election cycle. Make a party-plank. Even Independent Party members can support cold fusion R&D.
    — The elite Illuminati cabal is in disarray and we are breaking off from peak oil BS and Corruption so get ready.
    — Our people at Lockheed already have a working model and now it’s type to bring out a production model to soft land us into 3rd World development under a different operating model than colonialism of the past. …. You can run a city of 10,000 homes off our prototype and charge vehicle batteries to boot.
    — Because we made it public, we are willing to transfer our patents over to DOE so it can form a national energy policy under a new operating model. The old corporatocracy model may have to change — ie. no more GE Dominated Corporate Downwind Killing Plants under a corrupt DOE run by corporate conflicts of vested interests
