    Thanks, @Mike83 for fixing the link, not sure what happened.

    BTW, our solar system is really humming now, and we produced 76 kW/yesterday, and our energy demand is down to 6 kW/day now. Four of my former coworkers are installing solar now, so things are really taking off relative to renewable energy, and solar in particular.

    Great news Tesla-David. We are the first to progress in solar and EV and have saved bundles of money. Others are starting to figure it out. Solarcity now Tesla E is doing nicely and will progress selling the M3 which makes getting PV, powerwalls and/or solar tiles a very smart economic move.

    California now the 5th Biggest Economy in the World. Passes the UK.

    I guess going Solar is the best plan ever. We have to drag the rest of the US along.

    Awesome. 1GIGAWATT
    This will be the largest ever. Powerpacks.

    If the oil producing countries are putting in Solar it may be possible that we are nearing peak oil. The fracking industry funded by banks are burning money for new wells to no avail. Epic change is coming to the world and California the 5th largest Economy in the World.

    Once again, California is showing the rest of U.S. how to lead on renewable energy adoption, particularly solar. Way to go CA!

    "We could vote in Democats and ensure our financial collapse delaying all the medical, scientific, and technology advances that better the world. Not that it matters they want to end the existence of countries anyway."

    WHAT A LOAD.

    Did you know the following?
    Tax cuts do not work to stimulate the economy in any meaningful way. What they do is to blow up the federal budget for 5-7 years after one is enacted -- just as this one is doing.
    That deficits tend to decrease when Democrats are in power and increase when Republicans rule the roost.
    That blue states run by Democrats do better financially than ones run by Republicans, generally speaking.
    Most of the advances in medicine come from our universities, and that much of that is funded by NIH grants. The poor, put upon private pharmaceutical industry is one of the least innovative in the field of medicine.
    The last two times the economy has collapsed, Republicans were in charge. What enabled the Great Recession was deregulation of banking, particularly derivatives. The chief architects of that were Greenspan, Phil Gramm and Larry Summers. Clinton signed the two key bills, but the guys mentioned pushed it through the system.

    Jeeze, it's like talking to bricks.

    Wow, what a political thread. Let's let this one die on the vine shall we?

    @neofelis. Thanks for your critique. Glad you showed up. We have been experiencing an intellectually impaired troll shortage of late.

    The idiot in chief has now pulled out of the Iran deal. So war with Iran could be near at hand. I guess the North Koreans may be suspicious of American nuclear deals if we pull out of nuclear deals so easily. The upside is that there could be oil shortages and price rises. Great for EVs and climate change.

    Interesting direction. I don't really pay attention to the news as it quite boring. I do notice gas is already going up a lot. EV buyers will make out much better than before. I also read that Putin is cutting defense spending as the US increases it. In addition the Trump voting states will be the worst affected by ignoring Climate Disruption and they will get what they voted for.
    We're off again having a wonderful trip in out Tesla. We saw the other day a truckload of M3s going North through Oregon on I5 and a couple of red M3s on the road. They must have robots making these cars. hehe.
    Life is great. ;-)

    Attempting isolationism feeds the ego but doesn't really work in the modern world. The house of cards appears to be falling already.

    Yes, I love what Costa Rico is doing, and admire their leadership in addressing AGW/Climate Change at a national level.

    Saving money hand over fist and no pollution. Faster than power plants. Another Powerpack facility in the works. Nice revenue stream.
    1 GW next?

    Tesla is setting up China in free trade zone. Batteries and cars in same factory. This is great news for the world.
    I also read that electricity in the US is going to around 2 cents/kwh with solar. Great news all around.

    I live in an area where Mercedes and Honda have large automotive plants. It's interesting to drive by the Mercedes campus and see the billboard that faces I-20/59. It features a Mercedes car and the caption reads, "The Future is Electric." Honda has been quiet so far. To Mike83's point, according to Tony Seba of Rethink, solar will soon be cheaper than it will cost the utility companies to transmit electricity, let alone create it. Here in Alabama the transmission costs are around $0.07/Kwh. The quandary has begun for both the utility commission and for Alabama Power.

    @jpcollins9, I totally agree with Tony Seba's predictions regarding solar and also EVs. As someone who installed solar in 2012 and has been net positive for last 5+ years, and also 100 percent EV (MS and M3), for us the future is now. I also expect to get our 2-Powerwall-2 installation next month, which will enable us to operate as a micro-grid. I have family living in Mobile, so understand the quandary Alabama Power, and Utility commission in Alabama is facing. Solar absolutely works and States like yours, solar makes even more sense than it does up here in the NW.

    Wow, news like this will certainly help Tesla-Energy. "South Australia's grid service costs slashed 90% by Tesla battery"

    Thanks Tesla-David and the above link is for another one in Europe. The world won't stand still for the coal burners.
    Of course for years both you and I know the great economic benefits of Solar and EVs; others will figure it out.
