Re: Crazy Propulsion idea for next cruiser... Thoughts...
95% hydro is clearly the big answer. Not available everywhere. There is an interrelated dynamic downstream with these dams that I don't fully understand. I suspect they are more impactful than we realize.
When an entity is government owned, it does not take away the profit motive. It only allows them to compete, without paying taxes, which does reduce cost. By extension, everything could be cheaper, without taxes. If these government entities don't profit, they can't afford to rebuild infrastructure, add new dams, etc. Unless, of course, the government provides that with other tax payer funds, it which case, that isn't the all in cost of producing juice.
