    Solar will only work efficiently when the Power Companies give up trying to force Home owners to pay for the Power Companies future GENERATING CAPACITY.
    KEEP THE POWER COMPANIES OUT, except to purchase excess Power from the Homeowner at tbe Homeowners discretion.

    "But nobody had gotten the product of the electric car right." ... except when there were 800 electric cars for every internal combustion engine in 1890, right? And when all the taximeters in New York were electric cars in the early 1900's. And wh... well, basically you're an idiot. Idk how someone so wrong on so many things has a channel so big, I guess people are stupider than I realised.

    8 billion tax dollars go the fund a business that has yet to make a profit in a single year. However these are cool panels that every new house will be required to have. At that point the cost will skyrocket as power companies will be obsolete so the government will tax panels at 500%.
    North Georgia was in a drought so water company ask our 5 counties to reduce water use by 25%,which we did by 30%. Since revenue to water company fell they made up the difference by raising water prices by 35%. Once the drought ended the prices stayed high.

    I think this technology is fantastic. Unfortunately not all countries adopt this technology. Spain is one of the worst countries when it comes to this. It is illegal to have solar panels on your roof of your house. You can be fined up to €30 million. This is how corrupt the Spanish government is.

    *Most people do not know that is very possible to revive virtually any battery. From a car battery to reconditioning of NiCd and NiMH batteries or lithium-ion batteries. And, with a bit of knowledge and some simple tools you too really can do battery reconditioning yourself [Check Details Here==>**paper.dropbox.com/doc/Reconditioning-Any-Type-of-Dead-Battery-znFRbqzq5jpI3ZJjZKXX1** ].

    As usual, Musk´s people are superficial with their data. Solar roofs have known issues: East-West roofs, shadowing by trees and neighbouring houses, overheating on hot sunny days, dirt crusts after two years latest. None of these issues get adressed, but ppl are entitled to play and pay for being a test-bunny for eco-idiology. Hey, I really like solar power and Tesla cars, but stuff needs to make sense and issues need to be pointed out.

    I'm so excited about the prospect of solar roof tiles! I have a home in Tennessee with a facade that faces fully south, and a very steep pitched roof. Nothing would kill it's curb appeal and resale value faster than having traditional solar panels covering it. I'll be keeping an eye out to see if our local solar roof installation companies have adopted this technology. All your videos are fantastic. Please keep up the great work 👍🏽

    Sounds good about price but we all know the Government will make its money one way or the other. If cars all go to battery they will find a way to tax it to make up for the loss of money from fuel. Same with the house. If u aren't using electricity or gas, they will find another way to tax it.

    Looking at the big picture, living in big suburban houses like these - ones that have rooves is the problem. If you live such a house you are fucking over the environment with your massive energy needs. Move to a city and live in an apartment building - far better for the environment. Buy a 5 bedroom apartment if you want to feel rich.

    Great video! (As always) A couple of remarks this time though:
    1) not "each and every tile" is a solar panel. They alternate between real and fake ones to keep the cost down
    2) it is not only that these roofs are cheaper than normal roofs when factoring in energy savings, they are cheaper than normal roofs, period! With the exception of flat asphalt roofs, but you can't see these from the streets so Elon advices to still use regular solar panels anyway in this case.

  • leonie burnham
    leonie burnham 7 months ago

    lets say in 20 to 30 years there are at least 4 generations of tesla powerwalls that are genuinely advanced in design, capacity and lode functionality or user intuitive. Smart marketing would see a buyback/replacement discount scheme to purchasers of early generation 1 tech to sure up future sales and generate early capital for R&D and future production set up. Being an Aussie aswell it astounds me that we still use fossil fuels to generate most of our power requirements. DC to AC inversion tech is totally sound and functional now. Solar, hydro and wind keep improving with momentum in smart innovation. The only weak link still is storage. Battery technology still has away to go. I can't help but feel wet cell is still a better option for large capacity in non freezing parts of the globe. The surface area used by cement in most homes/apartments could be structual batteries with longevity applications by being serviceable for maintaining electrolyte cathodes and anodes. Basically top up your battery by hosing of your driveway and every 10yrs or so the serviceman comes and swaps out the plates.

    Food 4 thought :

    Losing your home (house rather) equity to a company, or the state - is that what they call "energy independence"? What do you expect from them, when the sec refuses to prosecute a ceo who would take a billion dollars of company funds to hire one Howard Stern, and then say to shareholders, sorry kids, but if we only had two hundred million dollars to keep from going bankrupt, what will we do? .. And so, ceo karmazin sold about half the company (sirius xm) to liberty media to raise the necessary funds to remain a going concern... when government promotes fraud, thievery, or looks the other way, refusing to hear, you know tyranny is coming.
    Liberty media - they used to issue "tracking
    stock". If you bought all the issued tracking
    stock, you would not own the company - that
    paper was void with respect to conferring
    ownership rights - and nobody at the sec, or
    other levels of the us government protested.
    The biggest threat to freedom is us politicians - the majority of whom seem to be guilty of treason. And so they move the earthlings closer
    to global tyranny and the reign of antichrist.
    All these church places where ZIANism (eugenics) is promoted, is run by them, the synagogue of satan.

    Losing your house? Ppa agreement, is that what they call rental agreements now? $TSLA $Scty The trouble with Tesla-Solarcity is that THEY tell U how much electricity U is using, remotely, and so charge. Wakeup Nigga! ...
    In Canada, they are called SMARTREADERS - the hydroelectric company decides how much electricity you used, how much you will pay - remotely. No longer do they send a guy to your house to read the monitor located on the side of your house which is difficult to tamper with. They decide, and not an independent observer - the monitor which neither the company or you control. .... Think of how McDonald's operates, or newspaper stands operate - handing out burgers and information, anonymously, thus preventing somebody from getting preferential treatment because of the colour of their skin, gender, or religion, et cetra. .... But sodomites, they desire a political economy where everybody knows each other - ftrom feudal "go to confession" days to "modern psychiatry" they seek to know other males. Sodomites, eugenicists, and satanists are one and the same - for their philosophies support each other. There is not much difference between nazis and communists, for both are about control over other persons' bodies, especially the males. The culture of sodom was not about same gender consensual relationships (although that was no doubt part of it) but nonconsensual invasion of privacy (desiring to know another, and acting upon that desire) : It was a culture that promoted sexual assault, especially upon males by other males.

  • therandomdot
    therandomdot 8 months ago

    What we're seeing is a reversion of the industrial revolution.
    The industrial revolution brought a lot of people together, so it made sense to create a power plant, a sewage treatment plant, water pumping station, etc... massive things that handled public needs in-bulk.
    What we're seeing now is a push for people to have the choice to be responsible for that themselves... with their own power generation, sewage treatment, etc at their own home, business, etc.
    This has happened for a few reasons
    1) cost has come down enough for more folks to experiment with it
    2) telecommuting has allowed more higher-paid knowledge workers to move out into rural areas away from the city since they don't have to commute.. and since they have more money, they can afford to experiment with self-sufficiency (when you end up with a large, high-end clientele, it usually makes it easier for ideas to go more main-stream and gain momentum)
    3) Technology has progressed enough for this to feel "high tech" instead of "stone age". Solar and wind power is easier to install. Composting and black/gray water treatment is easier to build into properties and very self-sufficient to cut down on water usage and increase landscape greenery. Things aren't so complicated or "icky" or hippy... hurdles that kept them from getting adopted.
    4) external prices from bulk provider has pushed folks to look for self-sufficent solutions. As our energy grid spends money to convert to a smart grid, it passes the cost onto customers. This increases electric bills. As waste and water treatment plants keep increasing costs, they pass it on to customers. So, customers want to explore self-sufficient power, water treatment, etc.
    5) people are liking the control they regain in their lives... by handling your own power, water, food, etc needs, you feel self-sufficient. By using technology to do it, you feel high-tech instead of like a savage.
    There will still be certain places where bulk-processing or provision is useful, but even big companies are looking into their own waste treatment and electric generation. Some colleges that do the experiments use composting toilets in certain buildings, have collection in the basement, then use it as mulch for the grounds after it's composted. They have solar and wind power solutions. They experiment with thermal solutions in colder climates. These ideas get refined, then businesses can take up the ideas and pass them on to consumers. And the consumer sector keeps growing as we see more people moving away from the city (either b/c they have a mobile work lifestyle going where the work is or they telecommute) and prices of providers keeps going up to prompt folks to solve the problem themselves to save money.
