  • Axion Power Concentrator 359 August 17 '14: 10-Q For Q2 2014; S-1 For $15MM Share Issuance; Changed Loan, IP-Secured MDA; David DiGiacinto Appointed Chairman And CEO [View instapost]
    Is there any thought to resuscitating the idea of an Axionista Coalition (ie: shareholders collective) where some of us who might be too small to get directly in on the new issue may pool resources and qualify for the sweetheart pricing?

    Not sure if that's possible or if others would be interested - I know I'm not the guy to lead this charge but would consider placing $10 or $20k, perhaps more, if someone else was doing the heavy lifting.

    Anyone?

    "Tesla projects that the Gigafactory will employ about 6,500 people by 2020." Smart idea - make yourself too big to fail.

    Tesla is the new Brawndo.

    I do not believe the NS999 is baked into the price.

    I'm personally a long-term holder but I save a certain amount of cash every month for investment purposes and it's undeniable that the sight of the NS999 would influence my decision as to whether to, when and how much more AXPW to purchase.

    There is a decent documentary called 'Punk Singer' about the career of a 90s punk singer and how it was affected by Lyme disease. Incidentally, she's married to Beastie Boy Adam Horowitz.

  • How Energy Storage Will Help Wind And Solar Power Clean Up Their Act [View article]
    Craig, you live in Arizona. Most of the rest of the country experiences these things called 'clouds'.

    What do you think happens when a large one of these clouds passes between the sun and a large group of solar panels? And what do you think happens when that cloud goes away?

    Answer: a grid-destabilizing fluctuation in energy supply.

    greentongue, I know you mean well and you're just psyched to hear more about ePower or anything Axion related. Me too.

    But you're kinda like that kid in the back seat of the car that keeps asking 'are we there yet?'. :)

    No offense intended, just sayin'.

    "During cross-country trips, we should see enormous returns."

    Not quite sure how stop/start helps on the highway.

    What do you mean 'lack of numbers'?

    The video clearly stated several times that 'it pays for itself'.

    I would also point out the clever promotional images on the side of the truck:

    Big American flag: check

    Big Map of the USA: check

    Bold display of the mpg: check

    Would love to see similar use of heartland American imagery and the mpg on the side of an ePower demonstrator. Maybe include the price too.

    Referring to the Peterbilt/Cummins Supertruck, they spent $38.8M in private funds plus 'matching grants' from the DOE.

    Do we assume the 'matching' grants were equal to the private funds so the total spent on this project is $77.6M?

    So $7.25M/mpg.

    I think it would be interesting to compare how much ePower has spent per mpg. Although I suppose Peterbilt, Cummins and the DOE probably wouldn't appreciate their noses being rubbed in such a comparison.

    Just the same, CoryM, keep your camera-phone handy. While John could take a picture of the ePower truck and post it anytime he wants, it would be pretty special to get a candid photo of the the truck in it's native environment.

    Stefan, didn't TG say that they were interviewing candidates and would be hiring a couple reps for the West Coast?

    I agree I would like to see this happen sooner rather than later.

    It's an *Ultrabattery* HEV, right? Wouldn't there be all kinds of non-battery configurations that have been fine-tuned to the Ultrabattery's unique characteristics?

    In which case this vehicle would neither take advantage of the PbC's unique characteristics nor would it highlight the PbC's potential for this application.

    "California, for example, has come to recognize the importance of combining storage with renewables and the state recently enacted an energy storage mandate that requires California utilities to acquire 1325MW of new energy storage by 2020. We believe the PowerCube has shown it can be an effective part of any energy power distribution system and we plan to participate in opportunities such as those presented by initiatives in California and Hawaii".

    I take this as a pretty big hint that TG et al are not sitting around waiting for someone in California to give them a call - they are in hot pursuit.
