        Dell won’t ship energy-hungry PCs to California and five other US states due to power regulations

        Energy efficiency rules appear to be limiting the availability of gaming rigs

        Customers seeking to purchase, for example, an Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 Gaming Desktop from Dell’s website and have it shipped to California are now presented with a message that tells buyers they’re out of luck.

        “This product cannot be shipped to the states of California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont or Washington due to power consumption regulations adopted by those states,” the website says. “Any orders placed that are bound for those states will be canceled.”..

        We’ll be having enough electrical supply problems when they get all of those electric cars on the roads.

        A friend of mine has installed Tesla’s Solar Panels.
        Not only the panels provide all his house electricity but also provide electricity for his Tesla Y and there is still unused electricity which he sells to the local electricity Co.

          I hope for his sake the panels aren’t installed on the house roof- if (when) either needs replacing/repair, the warranties for both will likely be in danger of being voided.
