Hell, it's local regulations that prevent me from charging my powerwalls from the grid, even though I think that's entirely stupid. I can buy electricity from the grid and use it for literally anything I can think of...except charge my home storage batteries. I can heat a pool, run a dryer for 24 hours per day, charge multiple EVs, etc., but stupid short-sighted regulations say I can't directly charge my powerwalls from the grid - it's dumb.

That's knee slapping funny.  I'm in AZ

Water isn’t an issue. 78% of our water goes to growing alfalfa and the like in the desert.   

Well, you’re getting around 25% less from the Colorado due to federal rationing cuts due to the drought. It’s sorta an issue since that area grows crops for the U.S. during the winter months.

Obviously there will be issues but the sky is falling all of the southwest will have to migrate crowd gets a bit annoying.  Agriculture will have to adapt along with the US food supply demands.  Lots of changes coming.

Adapt is a word...right now the farmers are lashing out at everyone when they should look in the mirror.  Some of the farmers tried to point the finger at Cannon AFB and their water usage given the Ogallala Aquifer is projected to be depleted in 10 years.  Curry County New Mexico has a population of 48,000.  Cannon has a bit over 12,000 Active Duty, GS/NAF employees plus dependents. The base itself uses less than a quarter of the red sliver...who is causing the issue?

You are 100% correct, things are going to change, they must.

In the graph below the red is public water for utilities.  676519905_ScreenShot2023-01-25at6_14_37AM.thumb.png.3da0a3b9d0ecb246d28738e19884fc8d.png

But you're not selling your excess power back to the man then.  Which is fine but not possible as far as I know if you aren't storing but returning your excess.  It would be tough to find a contractor that would be willing to install a solar setup and not follow the local code/rules.

Ok fair enough.  We don't have those codes here for now.  But if we did, and don't quote me on this, but there are a lot of videos on how to bypass the contractors and install every bit of it yourself.

For sure.  Wasn't in the cards for me 🙂
