  • Solar Panels: Let's Lose This Competition [View article]
    Oh boy, Romney is gearing up in the Bush lane and seems more dangerous than George.

    Is this madness ever gonna stop?

  • Solar Collapse Before The Dawn [View article]
    I think there will certainly be a system integration element to it but there will also be the massproduction and mass consumption element.
    The system integration will never be as it is with computers though, the complexity is very different and therefore the need for it is not as much.
    Computers are much more personal, thats why Apple is so successful, solar panels are a mass/utility product.

    I agree that new technology will be the ultimate winner in the field just as it will be with hydrogen cars etc. but knowing when and where and which it will be is impossible. You will have to sit on the sidelines and wait, and by the time the true technology thats here to stay will have been established you may have bet on the wrong ones that looked real good, so many times that it would have been better to just stay with one of the biggest ones to begin with. To bet on new technology that may or may not become the new and better is extremely risky I think.
    I figure that a company like YGE or TSL would certainly be on top of any technological developments and would eventually adjust to it. I hope that it won't turn into a patent war like the pharmaceutical industry etc.

    One also must not forget that one of the most powerful advertisements for alternative energy is just starting to come in the form of mutations that are already happening on insects i.e. Butterflies in Japan.
    Nuclear power is great in theory but in reality it is a horror.

    tvhead49, thank you for pointing that out. Those "ratholes" are beyond comprehension, the amounts of money flowing into those could have revolutionised the solar sector 10 times over.

    One day it will become clear to everybody that all you have to do in order to power your AC is to buy some solar panels. Eventually warehouses and factories will catch on to that, parking structures will catch on and you could even line the freeways. This would be a energy revolution which is affordable now and once it catches on, nobody will be able to stop it.

  • China's Giant Catch-22 [View article]
    I wouldn't look at that money as a loan from china, its more like a ticket that they bought in order to export products to the US dutyfree pretty much. They needed that ticket more than anything.

    By the time you realise that electing a new president will never change anything fundamental in Washington it will be too late. You think Romney will make a difference? Funny...

    Calling the chinese government inexperienced and corrupt in comparison to the US government is slightly bold I would say.

    I wish it was still that easy to simply wave the US Flag (most likely made in china) and blow the "we are better because we are americans" horn, .... but this ship has sailed, I am afraid.

    There are several problems with this article. If the RMB goes down in value it will bring more manufacturing to china and therefore also more foreign investment. All that foreign investment is buying in china is cheap labor and when the RMB goes down then the cheap labor gets even cheaper. Keeping the workers busy in china is the most important task and the most dangerous threat to that is the RMB going up. The RMB going down moderately is no problem for the chinese government.

  • As corn prices explode in the face of the worst drought in over a half century, ethanol, once touted as the homegrown, eco-friendly replacement for foreign oil, is fast becoming the new product everyone loves to hate. The fact is however, we've come to rely on the corn-based fuel's high octane level as a boost to the sub-grade gasoline currently being churned out of our nation's refineries. The crisis leaves us with two tough choices: higher gas prices, or higher food prices.  [View news story]
    How about reducing the large amounts of cornbased junkfoods that cost us billions in the disease industry.

  • Chinese Solar To Rule The World With Massive Chinese Stimulus [View article]
    TSL, YGE, 2 years. There you go.
    I dont think they will go bankrupt which means they will go up.

    Even my brother (lives in Austria, not exactly the sunniest place) just installed a bunch of solar on his roof and is now collecting money for the electricity he produces and he is the type who calculates extremely cautiously. There are industries in small rural vilages in austria that derive their energy needs during the day from solar power and here in sunny California we still use the grid for even AC etc.!! Unbelievable, its a matter of time.

    He says the set up is working extremely well btw.

    My logic tells me that with the panel prices as they are there will be a solar explosion sometime within the next 5 years in the sunnier parts of the globe. Of course one can not guarantee which panel producer will be the big winner but like I said I don't think TSL and YGE are gonna go under so there is my bet.

  • Trina Solar (TSL +0.6%) hovers in the green despite missing Q1 estimates earlier this morning. Profit swung to a wider-than-expected loss as margins were squeezed, falling to 5.8% from 27.5% as lower selling costs and provisions for anti- dumping duties hit bottom line performance.  [View news story]

  • Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy rejects the notion that the nation's banks should go cap in hand to the EU bailout fund, an idea that Francois Hollande apparently floated, although Rajoy is skeptical that he did. Another report says Spain turned down EU pressure to accept an IMF credit line to help strengthen the banks.  [View news story]
    ... the banks have been buying up greedy governments, shortsighted politicians and political parties lacking directions for hundred of years now, some would say even longer, its time to change that before some ridiculous dictator gets elected once again based on the simple promise of aggression.
