  • The Silliness Of Tesla's 10kWh Back-Up Battery [View article]
    a few Facts-
    -The US hit Peak Natural gas in 2004. The only reson it stopped going up by 20% a tear is Fracking. Once Fracking gets outlawed you would be a dumb gas user.
    -NG Makes as much pollution as OIL and COAL. It's very volatile and can kill you. Read about the many leaks and explosions everyday.
    - If the power goes out in the day when most use Air Cond the Solar can run and charge the battery. It only gets run down at night when use is very small.
    -The battery price will continue to go down while NG prices go up. If we still have a planet in the next few years.
    -As homes get more efficient with LED lights, High SEER Heat Pumps etc the battery can run those homes for a longer time. Old inefficient hummer homes will only run for an hour or just a few hours,

  • Tesla's Battery Storage Seems Economically Feasible [View article]
    Go Tesla. Storage has been the missing piece f the utility and GRID for 100 years. Old 100 year old Lead acid is not good for the environment or Off GRID. This changes everything.
    On Peak Electric is worth over 20 cents kWh. This long life , small and light battery system will be about $3K or less and will keep getting better and lower cost.

  • Cree promises 30% performance gain with new LED lighting modules [View news story]
    CREE is American made and the leader in LEDs. They are all I use and last forever while others I've used failed after a year or two. It's great when they are the best and keep getting better. I also own their stock since I want a US company to continue to grow.

  • Headwinds For New Tesla Financing: Estimates Declining And P/E Multiples At Historic Peak [View article]
    Great I'll continue to BUY and at low prices because people who write articles like this. Any new company will have high PE. Tesla is the first new US auto company in 80 years. They are reducing OIL Imports , reducing pollution, reducing the trade deficit and growing technology in the US with more jobs.
    If they don't see how much Tesla is doing for the USA they are short on vision and are trying to save their losing short position. We will see what they try to say when the model X rolls out, when the new battery charge up Renewables and the model III is shown in 2016.

  • Tesla And The State Of The Electric Vehicle Debate [View article]
    Many big auto manufacturers are stuck on hybrid and maybe a few plugin hybrids but they always seem to want that fuel backup. Consumers show they want either all fuel or 100% electric as seen in falling hybrid sales.

    So far Tesla is clearly the leader in 100% electric with the best range and FREE Super chargers that are the fastest in the world. They also see the Solar with battery back up market which is huge. Their battery factory also shows they see batteries as the key to many markets. It will be bigger than transportation.

    Their brand is so strong anything they make will be sold out. Self driving is just one area that they are way ahead in and shows they have the software and technology to do almost anything.

    Has anyone given them credit for reducing imported OIL, reducing pollution, reducing the trade deficit or growing US a manufacturing and technology leadership while others keep cutting back and dumbing down ?

  • Tesla's Overlooked Synergism With SolarCity [View article]
    DNC, It is low cost and very efficient to sell excess back to the utility, But many utilities have reduced the payback or even cancelled Net-Metering. They are also adding FEEs to be GRID connected so batteries and Off GRID now make a lot of CENTS . It pays to go Off GRID even in the city.

  • Ending The Bear Market In Tesla [View article]
    The release of the model X in 3rd QT will show just how strong their sales are, The battery coming out in 2016 and then model III in 2017 will blow away all the other companies. The number of Super Charger locations should be enough to change anyone's mind.

    InsideEVs reported 3,500 Tesla S sold in DEC 2014. I also expect 2015 numbers to climb and then double when the model X start delivery later in 2015. Time will tell.

    Nissan offers V2H Vehicle to home but so far just in Japan. Someday there will be many more offers from standalone battery systems, to Vehicle V2H and combinations of both.

  • Zacks' Bull Of The Day: Cree [View article]
    Maybe Zack is not always right but CREE is the best LED in the World and it's USA made and based. I even contacted my utility and they now offer incentives for CREE LEDs instead of last century CFLs. I love leading edge technology and USA made is tops.

  • Notable earnings after Wednesday's close [View news story]
    Tesla Model III is on my list to order as soon as they accept orders.
    Their new batteries alone will change the world.

    They reduce pollution, reduce OIL imports and Fracking, reduce the trade deficit by exporting 100K vehicles to Europe and China. If anyone shorts them they must not like America or freedom.

  • How Much Progress Did Tesla Really Make In 2014? [View article]
    You didn't list all that Tesla has accomplished in 2014.

    They added hundreds of Super Chargers in the USA and Europe and Asia. In the US alone they have over 150 Super Chargers. They are still the fastest charging system in the world and FREE.

    Tesla added the new protection plate under the model S to prevent the few fires after high speed crashes and road hazards. This was not a forced recall or even required update.

    The Tesla Model D is the fastest car in history for any type of car. It has 4 wheel drive and is even more efficient unlike other 4 wheel or even AWD systems.

    Tesla also demonstrated their self driving car. All model S/D vehicles now have those parts and the software will evolve to be even better.

    Tesla also already has car to car communications to give you advise and choices on avoiding traffic congestion. Accident avoidance is a big issue.

    Tesla continues to sell vehicles to Europe and Asia. They are helping to balance the trade deficient while others buy small items from China every day Tesla exports vehicles.

    The delay in the model X shows they will not rush any vehicle to market until it meets their high standards. This is just the opposite of most automakers.

    There are many more innovative things that Tesla has done. The Gigafactory and home Tesla back up batteries are still in progress but will continue to change the world, into a EV World.

  • Germany plans to build out EV charging station network [View news story]
    Tesla already has many free Super Chargers in Germany. They are even closer than in the US to allow for autobahn high speeds.
    This other network would be for BMW ,VW,M-B and other electrics in Germany.
