I haven't posted here in quite a long time, but this topic caught my eye. Honestly, you guys are in the right track, but you are seriously understating the implications. Right now, the NW gets roughly 60% of it's power from hydroelectric and the remainder from evil fossil fuel power plants. Boardman has already shut down and plant in Chehalis is running at 25% output with full closure scheduled in the next couple of years. Power in the NW is currently.06 to .08 /kWh. Once the left has sut down the 40% of power sources that aren't hydro (but they also want to breech the dams...so..), our costs will be about .40/kWh.... When you can get it of course. Simultaneously, PNNL has developed a control system for utilities to help "meet the electrification grid overhead". Translation: the utility will take control of your house temperature, water heater settings, and lighting to keep you in the dark, cold, and with cold water to stretch electricity in the grid.

Did I mention I just installed a 20 kW generator at my house? Grab your bubblegum boys, this is gonna get real.

250 gallon propane tank.
Motorsnorkle.com has kits to convert most small gasoline engines to dual fuel…actually triple fuel. You can run gasoline, propane or natural gas
I was trying to funny-sarcastic. Like....Aren't nat gas and propane evil, destroy the atmosphere, evil? Or will it be, if your wealthy enough you can get all the fossil fuels you need, kind of thing?

Their magical answer to breeching the hydro dams and eliminating fossil fuels would be to give everyone solar panels. However, in order not to offend migrating birds it will be mandated that they can only be used at night.
