      I hope you're right, Tesla is way more ambitious than people give them credit for. As long as power packs don't start exploding, things should be good.

    Notice how these tesla batteries are NOT being sold to the general public to just anyone. So THEY can operate free from the grid but are sold to elite large corporate grid power providers, so they inturn sell power to the public marked up. One unknown fact is no one can buy a power wall for their own homes or businesses as a stand alone battery bank. You have to pay for tesla to install them and no one else, at their additional noncompetitive pricing.

    Wait a minute.. You're telling me a battery can give us energy? A power source can give us power? That's impossible. Wow. What a discovery! Did you also know the amount of upkeep required for batteries is way higher for an oil/nuclear plant? Wow! It's like those oil companies are on some "efficiency conspiracy"! Hopefully these new age technologies will save the day and go beyond Moore's Law! Bendable Liquid Crystals! Antenna radiating biotech that can work inside the body! Biomass fuel and fully electrical energy! Materials that are so expensive they will wow you for more than 0.2% of the regular product and 10x times the cost! Wowie Zowie! P.S. Nuclear > Everything.

  • Federico Galimberti

    On your comment not being sure on the life of the battery packs, it’s reasonable your question as the product is relatively new. The best reference that we can use is Tesla itself and their other product...... Model “S”.
    It has the longest history to present us with hard evidence. The cells used in this car are older technology than what is being used in the power packs and yet, we see recharging % in excess of 93% after 300,000 km (most extreme example from Finland). The data available on this issue is substantial so ample and solid proof that the Panasonic cells are mature and a reliable product

    What's the EROES for the 21700 li-ion battery (or is it 2170?).
    Consider 1/7th the energy ever generated from a solar panel has to go back into the manufacture of its replacement (some 20 years or so in the future), that some amount of that must be put into recycling, and a lot has to go toward the battery (or other storage) manufacture.
    Consider also that the more intermittent, the more panels and more storage needed, meaning less of a positive EROEI.
    Therefore, for solar, we need the longest powerlines possible, the least amount of energy in, for both collection and storage and the most efficient way to recycle.
    I believe it's impossible to get an overall positive EROEI for such systems during the winter unless lots of hydropower and wind is also incorporated.

    Ahh... so THIS is why the automakers (and so many others) are all freaking out about Tesla and doing everything they can via PR to destroy them. It is because NOW Tesla is disrupting the Energy market.. and we can't have that.
    I doubt they will succeed.. the best they will accomplish is to slow their growth. And even that I would be surprised at.

    Any of you know about nickle iron batteries. I notice that Musk and the rest of the major players don't want the world to look at nickle iron batteries. The nickle iron batteries can last more than a century and require little maintenance. Why does nobody work with these? Do a search on nickle iron batteries and discover the answers.

      why not free? the sun is free, right? what happens after solar panels are paid off? solar panels doesn't need any maintenance other that cleaning the glass... Bottom line, my question was, how much electricity cost over there? Is it cheaper or more expensive then on the main land?

    Well this technology is dated(((OLD- Antique)))- (= NEXT= SUPER ULTRA CAPACITORS (((= Mass transportation buses are already using this technology. SUPPRESSED IN AMERICA??? Japan has been using this innovative technology since 2001. Elon Musk must have heard so why Tesla broke ground on the Gigafactory in June 2014 outside Sparks, Nevada.
    These Ultra Capacitors are able to charge in seconds what took hours. They have designed the product at 1 millimeter thin and molded into body panels on cars or whatever the need!! They encapsulate with carbon fiber and can mold it into any desired configuration((=.. Who needs space or walls full of batteries??? The best part is they are environmentally super Friendly

    Why not make car batteries scalable? Add more if you don't need the extra baggage or passenger space and you're going very long distances? And why not use car batteries in such a way that you can plug in appliances from your home? For camping or going on the road? This could be very useful to those in trailers and mobile homes.

      His lithium battery factory is good idea, 'cause it's an added value on hydrocarbons, the grid being "carbon fueled".
      Big energy storage is only good idea if batteries don't consume fast (= lithium out !). Zinc-Bromine does the job !!!

    I am honestly surprised that they can provide such performance at reasonable cost. I would have imagined that transforming the high voltages from the power grid into what batteries can sustain would ruin the efficiency of the systems. But from an environmetal standpoind I think there are better solutions than lithium ion out there (like flow batteries which do not degrade over time). Especially mid term when those cells degrade more and more and recycling is still not where it needs to be to create a closed loop product life cycle.

    I love how the Cali Public Utilities Commission guy's first response to new tech is "how can we regulate it?" Will they ever learn, or will they just keep trying to regulate their way out of over regulation? There's a saying, "the best thing about California is the weather, because the government doesn't control it." Lol
    But go ahead Cali, keep getting rid of the most energy dense power system known to man and turn to non renewable batteries...

    The lifetime of a Lithium Polymer battery is around 100 cycles and up to 500 if it's insane. As in a few hundred dollars for a few Amp Hours. The lithium drilling is also a very hazardous operation, as Lithium is an extremely reactive substance and is rare. Not only that, but a relatively small lithium battery, for example, a 1s with about 1000 mAH, is what exploded in people's pockets with the Note 7. That's a serious problem when you have those batteries the size of a shack. If one of those has a problem and the lithium reacts, it would be like a small bomb, and in turn could create a chain reaction.
