  • SolarCity Is Distancing Itself From The Competition  [View article]
    Solar City is a sleazy company. If you are a solar city customer i suggest you read the fine print thoroughly. Ouch! You will be paying higher than utility rates eventually.

  • The Silliness Of Tesla's 10kWh Back-Up Battery  [View article]
    I come home from work at 6 and I'm in bed by 10. That's all the backup power the average homeowner really needs. Utilities will still be relevant for a very long time, but Tesla is establishing a precedent. Who doesn't believe there will come a day when 20-30kWh systems are standard?

  • Tesla Energy launches with a charge  [View news story]
    Very few homeowners will actually cut themselves off entirely from the utility company. The utility will become the backup, filling in the gaps as it were.

    Wind power is going to be the biggest beneficiary here because it is already the cheapest energy there is and it is most abundant at night when there is no demand. With storage you can easily double wind energy output without adding a single new wind turbine.

  • Existing home sales down more than forecast in January  [View news story]
    The biggest demographic trend everyone is failing to recognize is the boomer generation is rapidly "amortizing". They won't be buying new homes, they will be leaving behind a massive inventory of homes.

  • Another Decline In Ford Truck Sales  [View article]
    Fact about aluminum-the skin on any aluminum surface is aluminum oxide (aka sapphire) and it is extremely resistant to corrosion. The new F-150s are going to last forever.

  • Solar stocks continue plunging; oil at $68/barrel  [View news story]
    The future of solar is combined solar/battery solutions. At some point 2 hour backup will be a standard and economic feature.

    Utilities need not buy back power from the retail customer because they will bank the surplus.

    Yadda, yadda...gold is a panic buy and the panic is over. Its just a yellow rock. It doesnt make more yellow rocks. A chili factory, on the other hand, makes more chili.

    The panic is confined to your portfolio. You know, gold is going to plummet back to $500 or so. It's just a yellow rock.

  • Apple Buying Beats - Method Behind The Madness  [View article]
    I'm going to call this a hoax. It makes ZERO sense for Apple to buy into overpriced, junk headphones with no proprietary technology.
