Did you hear about Portugal?

Hi! Or should I say Olá?! Either way, did you hear about what Portugal managed recently? They powered the WHOLE country (and it’s a pretty big place) on renewable energy. So that’s energy from solar panels, wind turbines, hydro energy from dams and waves, and biomass plants were powering everyone’s electricity needs. The country lasted a total of 107 hours without pulling any energy from fossil fuels. It’s pretty impressive. Being an electrician, it’s had quite an effect on me. It could be an absolute game changer. Not meaning to get all ‘deep’ on you, but can you imagine what it would be like to live in a world where devastation from mining fossil fuels was a thing of the past? It would almost certainly increase the average life-span as pollution would decrease. Lots of animals would get their habitats back, especially in places like the Amazon. It would reduce global warming dramatically. I think if that were to happen, the motor trade would also clean it’s act up; in fact we’re seeing that already with Tesla’s recent launch (the electric car). And I think my job would change a fair bit, too! I’d love to know what you think, so feel free to drop me a line on carl@stator-electrical.co.uk. Just as a side note, if you have anything you’d like me too look at, or give you a quote on, I’ve got some time next week, so give me a call! Talk soon, Carl Carl Firmstone Stator Electrical Solutions
