    And motors that will go a million miles and batteries that will go 600,000 (and still have plenty of stationary value after that). And what's the time it takes to replace these with the cheaper, better, state of the art motors and batteries down the road?

    All the while providing, hands down, a superior driving experience.

    People are shaking in their boots and paying large sums for propaganda, buying politicians, and character assassination.

    "Although the very large auto companies are investing in these technologies, there are many small companies that can’t afford to develop them, yet need “compliance” cars to sell in California."

    Is this deliberate?

  • Beware Tesla's Model 3 Mess  [View article]
    Thanks Bill for that article.


    From this article:

    "Meanwhile, state legislators are keeping a close eye on the project that most agree has jump-started an economic revival in Northern Nevada.

    “The information I’ve been watching is whether they’ve been making the investments we were promised and whether they are employing Nevadans like they promised,” Sen. Ben Kieckhefer, R-Reno, said. “And we see from the reports from GOED that those thresholds are being met.”

    The transparency promise

    Burned in the past by tax incentives that weakened the state’s ability to deliver services for an economic promise that wasn’t met, lawmakers vowed in 2014 to hold Tesla and its partner Panasonic accountable for their projections.

    Whitten said the county is working on a better way to quantify the costs for the next report.

    “From our perspective, they are paying their own way,” Whitten said.

    "This is a huge project, even for a large county, but especially for a small county that wants to stay small," Whitten said, describing hours and hours of plan reviews alone. "The other challenge is just by its nature, Tesla is an extraordinarily dynamic company and the project itself is equally dynamic. We went in certainly thinking we would be a car battery manufacturing plant, now there's home energy storage and commercial energy storage."

    Hill said his agency no longer has to actually recruit businesses to the state. His calendar is full of companies reaching out on their own after hearing about the Tesla project.

    “We met recently with a really large company — a very household name — looking at an opportunity in Northern Nevada,” Hill said, declining, as is typical, to name the business. “They said if Tesla hadn’t picked Nevada they wouldn’t even have considered it. That opened their eyes.”

    Such anecdotes are common in the economic development community.

    “Obviously there’s opportunity out there,” said Fred Dutter, owner of Papa Fred’s catering, who was recently licensed to provide catering and service from a portable food shed in Storey County. “There’s a lot of construction workers. But it’s hard to get into some of the places, like Tesla. It’s just a process.”

    What's coming

    Hill said the project will continue to generate both buzz and tangible economic benefits as construction nears completion.

    "We certainly pay more attention to this project than any other project," Hill said. "It's such a significant thing from a general economic development standpoint."

    In two years, Tesla's promised $7.5 million for public education will start flowing to the state and the company will remain involved in workforce development projects at the higher education level, Hill said.

    "We'll see continued construction as well as a ramp up of the number of people employed there," he said.

    Thanks for bringing up the relevant facts of Solyndra.

    It's shameful that the distorted meme (instead of the actual history) can be promulgated with a straight face anymore.
