All this does at scale is move "peak" time to be all the time, same goes for just with batteries. The more power you take out of the grid "off hours" is simply skewing those off hours to become peak hours eventually with batteries deploying at scale you'll simply move the peak time and or flatten demand across the entire day/night which while beneficial in the short term doesn't do much long term.
So are they banning French Fries, Pizza and any form of processed frozen food too? Do we get to put the school administrators/state officials in detention for serving crap processed foods to the kids? They're trying to do the right thing, but they're going about it all wrong.
I've got one of these notebooks. They've replaced my motherboard twice as well as all the cooling system (fan/heat pipe/etc). I'm confident it's a BIOS level issue, that said, after my third (including orig) motherboard the problem went away. I can play 10+ YouTube videos simultaneously now with no issues, before I couldn't get through a single video. I posted this on my blog including a screen shot of the throttle taking place in Windows Resource Monitor. Nice to hear I wasn't alone.
First I have to say that I work for the company that I'm talking about. Ok, now that's out of the way. Primus Canada recently launched a new service where we give the customer the ability to control telemarketing calls. Think of it like spam filtering but on telemarketing calls. This has reduced inbound Telemarketing VERY substantially for our customer base. Do not call lists are all fine and dandy but they aren't that reliable. You can learn about the feature here:
The best call treatment is the "press 1 jail." If the number is identified as a telemarketer the telemarketer needs to "press 1" in order to reach the customer, since 99% of Telemarketers can't send any digits this effectively blackholes them. Works a charm.
