  • 3 Billion Reasons Why Tesla's Gigafactory Will Be A Bloodbath [View article]
    Lets say I lease a Tesla with a 12,000 mile use agreement. Each 200 of those miles requires a 30 minute recharge. I am required now to plug my Tesla into a coal fired grid for 3000 hours each year. Just hope I don't need to use the heater or the AC or my range will decrease while my plug time increases. If I'm doing the math right I actually don't have the use of my car for almost 18 weeks a year 7 X 24= 168 hours/3000= 17.8 weeks of tether. Hopefully I will be first in line at the roadside charger.

    Our city installed a charger space downtown several months ago, I have yet to see an EV plugged in there, so far the net result is the loss of 1 badly needed DT parking space Praying that we get a Tesla soon, but hopefully no more than 10 which might deprive the city of more parking and increase the pull on our tired grid.

    Seems to me that you are attempting to insert verifiable, documented facts into an emotional argument, good luck.

    Could we all be confused about Elon's real business plan? Think about it 25,000, 1,000 Lb Tesla batteries that can't be recycled. Now picture a giant battery burial site in EBF Egypt.

    John, could you not print off the electronic shares then transfer them to the wall? I would save some wall space for your Tesla shares (I don't have any). The age of coal fired autos just isn't here yet. I must agree with Moon, the Giga battery factory will be obsolete before they break ground.

    Great game against Kentucky Patric, now take us to the final 4. JK. Glad to hear some investment firms see some sparklers in the AXPW ashes. Just keeps me hanging on.

    Finding those small nuggets that other don't see, is the origin of the "home run," Exactly what I'm trying to see!

    Thank you John for that great condensed overview of the Axion stock history. How lucky we shareholders are to have a person in our circle with the first hand knowledge of the important effecting the history and evolution of Axion.

    Thank you especially for your open and communicative inputs to the benefit of your fellow Axionistas.

    Who can say where all this ends up, but I for one can say I've never owned a speculative issue and enjoyed this level of first person input.

    Great perspective John. The engines runs at a constant rate, correct, The Axion pbc batteries are the primary propulsion pulling the 39000 load? absolutely fascinating! I am excited to see real results driven by actual needs. Onward and upward.

  • Solar Energy Poses A Threat To The Shale Gas Revolution [View article]
    Please don't confuse my comments as "opposed" to renewable energy, My position: 1. I'm very much on board with renewable energy. 2. It's not here yet! or even close from all the data that I can find. Storage is the missing link,
    I follow battery technology closely. It's has a long way to go for power generation to begin the destruction of conventional energy sources.
    Don't confuse powering up your laptop with storing enough energy to run your town for a week!

    interesting partnership. Why should the new, latest technology minds link up with dirty, air polluting coal power? Because even the Chinese demand lights and heat 24/7, 365 days. Watch for Chinese technology to clean up coal even more.
