But despite this big procurement and progress at FERC, the needle is moving more towards behind-the-meter storage. From 2016 to 2017 this segment grew 79%, for which GTM Research and ESA primarily credit California’s Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP).

The group of mostly teenagers in Oregon alleged in a 2015 complaint that government policies have exacerbated global warming in violation of their rights -- and those of future generations -- under the U.S. Constitution.

They claim that for more than 50 years, the office of the president and eight federal agencies promoted regulations to support the U.S. energy industry’s proliferation of fossil fuels, accounting for a quarter of the world’s carbon emissions.

For those interested...a nice review from someone who has had the car for at least 3 weeks.

This is important data I track from year to year as it's one of the top straw-man arguments out there called the "long tail pipe". As I've told people for years when it comes up in conversation - the grid will only get cleaner as the years progress, which means EVs get cleaner if you do not already have solar on your roof.

Look at how much cleaner the grid gets from 2009 to 2016:

2016:

I'm debating ordering a Model S instead of the Model 3. When you add up the extras for the Model 3, the price jumps up significantly. Thoughts?

oh nice! a bit jealous....

umm...it's all personal preference -

-S and 3 have different designs
-S is a bigger car vs. 3
-S is the "luxury" line now for the company, 3 is the more basic car
-I like the 3 for the new minimalist interior design though (no individual air vents, smaller horizontal screen) as how it's put together makes it feel more spacious and open when looking out from the driver side

I'd take either though!

Basically Chevron says it's the fault of the consumers inside our economy and not them....time to add a hefty carbon tax to all these companies then....they're trying to squirm their way out of this...

“Chevron accepts what the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] has reached consensus on concerning science and climate change,” said Theodore Boutrous, who represents Chevron

Now, Wentz says, there’s a formal declaration in the public record from a Chevron lawyer, stating once and for all: “It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.”

“The world is changing, and so is Statoil,” said Board Chair Jon Reinhardsen in a Thursday morning statement. “The biggest transition our modern-day energy systems have ever seen is underway, and we aim to be at the forefront of this development.”
Quote:
Statoil CEO Eldar Saetre acknowledged in 2017 that “a peak in oil demand” is coming, probably between the mid-2020s and the mid-2030s, and eventually oil “will be a shrinking business.”

Thought I'd post this for those that haven't seen this online yet:

[Only registered users can see links.]

Quote:
“Tesla Inc. released its production numbers for the first quarter 2018 on Tuesday. The company delivered 8,180 Model 3s in the first three months of the year. That compares with 6,468 deliveries for Toyota Motor Corp.’s Prius Prime plug-in hybrid and 4,375 for General Motors Co.’s Chevy Bolt.”

And it's only going to get worse for the other automakers has Tesla continues to ramp up.

Thanks! Yeah, I should have had the car by now, but because of production issues everything got moved back. I'm still having to wait though for the standard battery version until the end of the year because right now all that they are selling is the version with upgrades.....sucks, but I'm just excited that I'm one step closer now.....

Nice bro! I'm still debating between the 3 or the S. Do you already have your garage charging station already built?

Not yet, but all you really need is a 14-50 plug installed if don't care about aesthetics....the reason the installation costs can get high is due to the length of the wire you need. My plug will be right by the box and the guy said it would take only 30 minutes to install, so I'm waiting until I officially buy the car before getting it.

What's still got you on the fence between the two?
