Those are some interesting thoughts, I live on the island of Malta,
where electrical prices are expensive. The Dc i used to work at charged
58 euros per kwh of electricity used if you colocate.
I have a few ideas im working on proposing to vodafone malta, and if
they deem it feasible it would be something I coudl move forward with
Here in Malta we have alot of wind and solar, I dunno why to be honest
electrical companies dont burn organic wastes to help generate electricity.
I am actually thinking of approaching the government with the idea of
using organic wastes to generate electricity locally, and start to cut
our dependence on oil for electrical generation.
