Nah, it's Greta, as I said. The blind haters can't get their heads around the fact that other manufacturers make electric cars as well. They're not really concerned about electric cars, they just want something to hate. So, Greta and Tesla.

Tesla “big battery” in Australia is becoming a bigger nightmare for fossil fuel power generators

Tesla proving alternative energy is the answer

Vancouver Island could sorely use the grid stabilization

Tesla stock down around $250 in about a week.


Devastating the company

How do you plan on charging the battery?

Should have bought when it was hitting $1000. Think of the income tax advantage you could of had.

It doesnt qualify for the subsidy if you get floormats. It has to be bare bones.

The Aussies have married their battery storage to a wind farm and proven that it works perfectly.

We should do the same on the Island but with the multi billion dollar upgrade to the John Hart we are sort of maxed out on energy generation.

Pretty good idea if there is an excess of power in the green grid, but if it is siphoning off a full grid then it is a fail

It probably would work well with a windfarm since they have proven to be useless on their own. But if the right kind of battery is in the system it could average out the peaks and valleys and make constant power at a regulated feed. That of course would depend on the price of the battery. Still has to bring the price of wind down somewhere close to hydro to be viable.

Buddy is referring to projects that use the 'Tesla Wall' - basically a bunch of laptop batteries in a room that get charged by solar or wind.


Great for a business plan that calls for supplying recharged laptop batteries, but not so good for someone that is in surgery at the local hospital and the lights crap out

It works well enough to render ICE generators obsolete.

It operates at a fantastic savings.

The ICE generation is working perfectly in my cars and truck.


Case in point, I let the vehicle warm for a good 10 minutes to get the cabin all nice and toasty on those days when it's below 0

So you can supply 150kw continuous power in a box the size of a pickup? Anywhere anytime?

And it only takes a few gallons of liquid that is plentiful and natural to this planet, who da thunk that was evil, go figure

Probably not so effective any longer

Oh yes I do. And your picture clearly indicates it is not realistic. How are you going to take all that junk to a construction site?

Reality. I know that is over your head. You stated that a battery pack would takeover from ICE generators and I asked if you could supply one that could sustain 150 KW and you reply with a picture of a a bunch of battery packs that take up several football fields. So obviously the correct answer, as usual is that you cannot back up your false claim.

The Chinese have married power generation to burning coal and it has worked seamlessly for hundreds of years

One kilowatt per square meter on average.

Don't worry about the cap'n none, Hoid. When he's sober, he admits the value of non-fossil energy.

1 Kw per square meter.... Over what period of time


Fact is, wind and solar (solar in particular) is such a heavily diluted energy source, it has far less value compared to the on demand sources out there.


... There is a reason why only a select few gravitate to solar or wind

In Saskatchewan? Check the stats Oklahomo. Which season? 50% will go to heating the batteries in the sunny, dry Canadian Prairie.
