OK, so the title might be a little alarmist, but the articles talks about a common problem the private sector and politics have, where does one help the other, or infringes upon the other. While Massachusetts ranks 4th for most solar installed state, a legislation, officially known as H.4185 relative to net metering, is pending at the State House that could remove the net metering limits. You know who would profit most form this.
This is an article I wrote on Teslarati, but I was surprised at the comments, which made me wonder. Do people really read articles, or do they just skim over and lash out comments behind anonymity? The gist of the article was that anything connected has a potential vulnerability, that we are complacent when it comes to it and that the news media will exploit our fears over it.
Geothermal energy is the greatest type of energy. Always on, truly renewable and sustainable with its relatively small foot print is not taking off as well as it should. However, China is now looking into it more closely.
Over at Electricnick, we love new technologies and breakthroughs, but none have spiked our interest more than flow cell batteries. The Quant e Sportslimousine promises serious performance and range. How will Tesla respond to that one?
Sometimes study point to the obvious, but for those who absolutely demand the nut and bolts, bottom line numbers, this one speaks loudly. The reason why fleet managers adopt electric vehicles is because they started out with an interest in testing them in the first place.
Tesla juggles Supercharger, Gigafactory, Model X and Model III, as well as the Chinese market.
Yes, the Tesla Motors headquarter must be busier than an ant farm, crossed with a beehive managed by the Borg. Tesla Motors is juggling no less than five huge potential projects, all crucial parts of its future success. The MOdel X is about to launch in a few months, but we still don’t know how many orders there are. We know the Model E is now called the Model III and will launch in three years. All of this hunges upon the $5 billion dollar success of the Gigafactory, and that is if the Chinese market develops successfully. Can you say mad house?
I guess you save the best for last, but this is probably one the best, and most potentially dangerous news. If 25 utilities in 14 states currently offer special rates for EV owners at the average equivalent “price per gallon” of $0.75 when the average cost of gasoline in these states is $3.70 a gallon, what do you think will happen to the overall industry?
Having said, I look forward to your comments and hope you have a great week. It’s a big world out there, and there is much to do.
