Is “Direct Energy” a better deal than Terasen Gas?

Question by Peter: Is “Direct Energy” a better deal than Terasen Gas?
A “Direct Energy” salesman just came to the door, and wants me to sign up for “Direct Energy” He was a high pressure salesman, and it took 10 minutes for me to just say to him I want to think about it, come back later. He said if we switched to “Direct Energy” we would still get our natural gas bill from Terasen, but that “Direct Energy” would be supplying it. They would lock in the rate that I am paying now, so I wouldn’t pay more… There seemed to be two catches to me, but I couldn’t get answers from him. 1- Gas prices seem to be going down, so would I be locked into the higher rate? and 2- he mentioned a $ 100 administration fee if we went back to Terasen. Anybody have experience or knowledge with alternate natural gas suppliers? Are they a good way to go, or bad? HELP!

Answer by Go Cubs Go
Stick with Terasen gas. If it comes from a high pressure sales person it more than likely isn’t on the up and up.

Q&A: Why won’t my house work on solar energy but everyone else’s does?

Question by –: Why won’t my house work on solar energy but everyone else’s does?
I recently stopped paying my gas, light and water bills because I heard that everything can be powered by the sun during the day. I work overnight so I don’t need any power during that time. Why won’t anything in my house work with this “solar energy”? I am starting to think this is just another Obama lie.

Answer by Bryan
You have to buy the solar cells…..Maybe Obama will hook you up with a big fat rebate. Maybe not.

What effects does water energy have on the environment?

Question by elizabeth m: What effects does water energy have on the environment?
please have LEGIT information information because this is for a class and i really need this grade

Best answer:

Answer by Nigel P
By “Water Energy” I have to presume you mean Hydro-Electric power (the days of direct water power by using water mills is long gone, though the industrial archaeology of it is fascinating)
here is a rework of an earlier answer:

Hydro power is simply generating electricity from water flowing through turbines. While you can use the natural flow of a river in small scale schemes more usually it is associated with damming a gorge to get a large head of water then running large scale turbines off the flow from the base of the dam.

Advantages. If you have the right geography, like Iceland or parts of Scotland then you can generate a lot of power at low cost (once the dam is buildt you just have maintainance and the interest on the capital for the building costs, the “fuel” is free.) Hydro power does not produce pollution in the same way as fossil fuel or nuclear plants do, so this is a considerable benifit to the environment but see the disadvantages below.

Disadvantages – you need the right geography, a flat, arid land is not good for hydropower, or even a flat, wet land. You need somewhere with reasonable hills or mountains, with damable valleys.
In some places the damming and flooding of the valley has little or no detrimental human or environmental impact but schemes like the 5 Gorges project in China (Worth googling to get more details of this project) have both dramatic environmental impact, both from flooding of land and upsetting the flow of water, and of silt downstream as well as making many thousands of people homeless.
Badly sited and designed dams can also be a huge safety hazard if they break, fortunately they tend to be reasonably well designed and planned nowadays.

Disrupting the water flow can have advantages, such as flood control and water storage in areas with rainy and drough seasons but it can also deprive the river and people downstream of the water they need.
Silt settling out in the impounded lake can clog up the lake and removing the silt can make the river erode more rapidly downstream.

The impounded lake can have some advantages, while it is a different ecosystem to the flowing river this is not always bad, the flooded valley may become a tourist attraction, both for lakeside views, boating, fishing etc and this needs to be balanced with the loss of habitat and resources from the original valley

Q&A: Is drilling for resources the only thing that can bring down energy prices?

Question by J. Galt: Is drilling for resources the only thing that can bring down energy prices?
Wind and solar require a government subsidie because companies can’t make money on them. So they tax the taxpayer and give it to an oil company who is making tons of taxpayer money putting up inefficent windmills. Hippies and their laws suck huh. So while we have more “clean energy” our grandkids are paying for it on top of the expensive price they make you pay. Alternative energy should NOT require a government subsidie, recognize.

There is only so many BTU’s in a square foot of sunlight. Green energy just isn’t ready and may never will be. Throwing away trillions of taxpayer dollars won’t get more energy from where it doesn’t exist.

How much more energy is used to produced a compact flourescent light bulb compared to a standard bulb?

Question by winterburn_98: How much more energy is used to produced a compact flourescent light bulb compared to a standard bulb?
We are being urged to but compact flourescent light buld because theu consume about 20% of the energey of an equivalent incandescent ( traditional) light bulb. No one ever seems to ask how much more energy is used in the manufacture of these “Low Energy” bulbs. Does anyone know ?

Best answer:

Answer by Coldstream Greenie
if you ever open a CFL – you will find lots of electronic devices in it – they are costly – but the amount of energy required to assemble the CFL is far less as compared to normal bulbs – why? because the wave soldering machines meant to assemble the CFL runs into few kilowatts only. The robotic conveyor system is used in both the processes – so no difference there. Manufacturing cost of Tubes may be bit higher than ordinary globes.

BUT – after manufacturing of every bulb – it is also tested for couple of times – for example it was tested for an hour. which means a 100 watt bulb wastes 0.1 units of energy,. same way ordinary household CFL(23 watts) will waste 0.023 units for an hour of testing – you can calculate how many ordinary bulbs are manufactured in one day and how much energy was saved in that process.

For example: 85 watts of CFL will produce Light intensity equivalent to 400 watts of normal bulb and it will definately save 80% of electricity.

If you require a 400watt ordinary bulb to lightup certain area for an hour. you will spend 0.4 units. Assuming the unit of energy costs $ 0.30 then you will spend $ 0.12 an hour for lighting up that area.

Whereas with CFL you will use 85 watts of bulb as lumen intensity is equivalent to 400 watts, which means you will spend 0.085 units an hour and total cost shall be $ 0.0255. Now you can calc the savings !!!!!!!!

Q&A: Why do we subsidize the alternative energy industry?

Question by sklohr101: Why do we subsidize the alternative energy industry?
The oil industry has been subsidized for decades. It’s a constant political hot button issue. If it’s such a bad thing to do, why is the current administration subsidizing “alternative energy” companies with taxpayer dollars? Will this not just enrich a different group of people, effectively doing the same thing that was done for big oil? So far four alternative energy companies are belly up, likely more to follow, where’s the outcry? If I’m not mistaken part of the “excuses” for those that have failed so far is due to foreign, “cheap labor”.

Very good question! I guess it is like giving money to the endowment for the arts. It is nothing but politicians buying votes and giving other people’s money to favorites. It certainly does not make sense economically or logically.

Question by John W33: Can Harry Reid guarantee that his “Clean Energy Jobs” produce something besides a further waste of our money?
What happens after we spend a trillion dollars trying to find this “Clean Energy” on a scale large enough to replace oil? If it does not suceed will the libs take the blame for destroying the country?

Also won’t all the people who work for oil-coal in the US become unemployeed? Basically a gain one job – loose one job approach? How does that help – except for the lib’s who hate oil and coal and could care less about those workers?
