Hell yes! Congrats to the younger Cali generation who will buy new houses in 2020 and after.

New homes and low-rise apartment buildings across California would include solar panels under first-in-the-nation rules approved Wednesday by the California Energy Commission.

"The rules include efforts to increase battery storage and increase use of electricity over natural gas. Use of batteries to store solar energy will be crucial to cost savings, Raymer said."

Welcome to a 21st Century energy company where everything is sustainable - transportation, production, storage.

For those interested in the break down of a Model 3 battery....here ya go!

It's basically a 85 kWh Model S battery, but smaller and less cells. Another reason to love this company - they are always improving their product.

They talk a little in the beginning, so skip to 28:50 mark to really get into the battery.

This makes sense, as noise pollution is one of the ways our health is affected.

What does this mean? Well, the study suggests that the quieter driving environment allowed cabbies to be in a more concentrated state of mind. In other words, by removing the noisy diesel engine rumble, they are perhaps freed up to get on with driving in a more focused, but calm way. .

Nice article showing that not only does battery storage cut into peak-demand profits, but also baseload profits. In the long-term, baseloads won't be able to get their profits from peak-demand, which will then make them have to set higher long-term contracts, and in the end will not be profitable. Beautiful - economics at it's finest.

Oh, forgot to mention I got to ride in a Model 3 this past weekend and it was amazing. The version out right now is a single motor, non-performance type and it is still very zippy. I've test driven the S and X a lot and the 3 still has the punch.

Can't wait to get mine.

Fun video showing key stats from the battery as he goes along.

Interesting video....add on top of that in 5-7 years, who's going to want to hold onto an ICE lease when EVs are so mainstream.....






It's all due to leasing. This is a screen shot of one of his slides:

The 2017 LLNL Energy flow chart is out. We used less Natural Gas and coal than 2016. Wind and solar went up.

Neil Waggoner with the Beyond Coal campaign says its clear coal is near its end.

We see there are no coal plants under consideration to be built. The current coal plants that are already in the state are struggling to be economic and are in a number of cases, seeking customer-funded bailouts, Waggoner said.

Utilities have pleaded with lawmakers to help subsidize their financially struggling coal plants, saying its an important resource that helps diversify the grid.

ah, he's just "trimming the fat" and making the company as lean and efficient as possible as they grow.

ok, you can continue to think that as this is the second time you have expressed this feeling, but it's not accurate. They just pushed over 3,500 cars a week for the Model 3......the ramp is improving. Plus they have their normal S and X they are doing just fine with.

Then on the energy side they have their storage and solar business.

Remember, Tesla is not a car company anyone, it's an energy company.
