Hi, I'm one of the members of NextNet, Mark Janssen. I've got several pages to contribute for making independent communities. The pages I post here represent some of the best knowledge known for the planetary transition. They are not opinions, but they do transcend known, male-dominant science and economic theories sometimes. Please just let wiki work. Cheers!

Notes[edit | edit source]

The value of a kilowatt-hour is about $40. Such dollar amount represents about 1.3horse hired for an hour.

The gallon of gasoline is about the same (roughly $25/gal). Since you're presumably getting value from its consumption, you can cut either in half.

Apparently no one ever quantified the value of the things the market doesn't make itself.

Photovoltaics generate about 1500kwh/yr per 1000W system. That means that the average expected generation is about 4x your size(W)/day.

Trash should be valued at a cost of approximately (-)$3/ft3 * $1/lb.
