So that study I posted about 5 posts up, well the Xcel proposal in it just became reality.

But every household in South Australia was able to watch whatever it wanted on Saturday. Without the battery, as much as 84MW may have been lost. It was the households in NSW – with five major coal generators off-line due to repairs – that had to cop the outages.

I have no problem with the wind mills, I actually think they are the cleanest way to harness energy, and they are very cost effective, but I am not a fan of subsidies from the federal government that come along with it.

That's great.

I'm really not going to go back and forth with you on the subsidies topic because the gov't subsidizes our gas.....it's the reason it's so low compared to Europe. Also, there are rules in place in which the tax credits for wind slowly died down by a certain date and we are close to that.

SunCommon says Massachusetts holds about half of New England's solar capacity, and contributed $9.3 million in savings from solar during the period analyzed.

I've kept up with his vids and projections over the past year and love this guy's energy and enthusiasm....just wanted to show someone besides me who thinks Tesla is not just a car company, but an energy company and what they are doing to the industry.

“[Tesla has] very capable electric vehicles. When we look at the landscape of competition from a car company perspective, whether it’s Tesla or whether it’s some of the global [equipment manufacturers], there’s very capable competition, and that’s what kind of drives us. That’s why we’ve been so aggressive on investing in technology and moving quickly,” Barra said.
