  • Tesla's Insane Mode Of Pricing [View article]
    What's your source for average vehicle cost? 'cause if you're simply using data on how much Tesla spends and how many cars they sell.... you DO realize that they are buying stuff other than materials to build cars... right?.... like a $5B battery factory...

  • The Powerwall's Implication On The Electric Utility Industry [View article]
    Funny... I remember hearing the same comments in regards to the model S. PV DOES save $$$; Storage saves slightly less; Then... you guys always seem to forget that some people believe a stable climate for their kids is priceless not worthless.

  • China installs 5GW of solar capacity in Q1 [View news story]
    Installed solar is always expressed in GW (power). You can convert that number roughy... China receives ~4.5 full hours/day on average. 5GW = 8.2TWh/yr.

    Other forms of generation are also expressed in installed capacity... a 1GW nuclear plant is called a 1GW nuclear plant... not a 7.6TWh plant...

  • Model S demand in China still a work in progress [View news story]
    Funny how the haters report a 45% decline (really just a shift in production batching) but not an 800% increase like there was last year in Norway from April to March (also just a shift in production batching)....

  • What Is Tesla Really Worth? [View article]
    No, flow batteries are not cheaper... at least upfront; Perhaps on a per kWh cycle basis. Even then it would take >30 years cycling them daily before they WHERE cheaper and the Gigafactory is likely to change that dynamic.

    Storage is required to expand solar beyond ~20% total generation. This is already a problem in Hawaii, California and Germany. The market for storage is expected to grow exponentially over the next 10 years.

  • Tesla's Cost Advantage Destined To Disappear [View article]
