Do try and think before you post and you won't look so stupid.

See above.

Perhaps the new Hell's Gate Dam and it's thirty mile long reservoir up the Fraser will satisfy the demand from the self-satisfied Yuppies in Duncan who can afford to drive $65,000 Teslas.

Pretty sure the $20 or so billion they are putting into the Site C will have those ecars humming every day.

In 2043. When they finish it up.


SNC Lavalin up to their elbows in BC Hydro grandiose publicly funded mission.

Who is going to be buying the power from Site C?

Are you willing to pay triple for your hydro?

Be happy with that, when psychopaths start offering up 'solutions' that is the time to get worried.

Indeed and very good ones.

Maybe you can solve the problems of BC Hydro getting locked into intermittent renewables, relying on subsidized, high priced, private natural gas for back-up when the wind isn't blowing, the sun not shining and the reservoirs run low. There is also having to dump below cost to Americans when overcapacity. Is their any agreements between AB SK Yukon or NWT to buy from Site C?

More discount hydro for WA ID and OR?

I'll save the issues of "garage orphans" after your witless "white natty climate denier" rebuttal.

He has already gone there.

A 2A 120V trickle charge only and that's if there aren't extension cord over sidewalk bylaws.

As for his BC Hydro claims, they are forced to buy from private NG power plants.

Even with Site C and no LNG boom they are short 400MW minimum not including making up for unexpected overwhelmingly growing usage.

To keep the price per kwh where it is, the NG sourced power has to be subsidized.

True but what is BC Hydro going to do? They have no energy storage capacity. Going Green forced them back on fossil fuels.

I'm glad moonbats don't demand the whole country switch to intermittent energy sources all while demanding everything go electric.

The intent for site C was for the mines that were to be opening in Northern BC and refineries with some goint to Alberta. Probably won't happen for some time now that we have an anti jobs government in Both Victoria and Ottawa.
On the bright side the ecoworriors will be paying much more than necessary for their green power.

Truly an amazing feat considering he is locked in a round room.

That $7 uptick doesn't exactly make-up for the $150 loss since Dec

does the $237 stock price make up for the $17 ipo?

the day of the IPO Tesla shares closed over $23

Up about 40% on the first day.

I dare say institutional investment was heavy

Tesla is suing an ex-employee and wants Apple's help, report says

It takes serious gumption to steal from a massive multinational corporation. But that's exactly what a lawsuit being put forth by Tesla alleges that a former employee who's now working for Chinese company Xpeng and its US-based subsidiary XMotors.ai did, according to a report published Thursday by Bloomberg.
The lawsuit filed by Tesla stems alleges that former employee Guangzhi Cao stole the source code for Tesla's Autopilot software. Cao admitted to authorities that he did, in fact, download the source code, but his laywers maintain that he hasn't done anything with it.
The lawsuit is especially interesting because Tesla is seeking assistance from Apple -- also a victim of IP theft from an Xpeng employee -- in getting access to the thief's data by way of a subpoena. According to Bloomberg's report, it's not totally clear what exactly Tesla is trying to get from Apple, but we suspect it involves access to documents from Guangzhi Cao's iCloud account, where he admitted to storing Tesla's IP.
Now, it should be said that neither Tesla nor Apple has decided to go after Xpeng itself, instead focusing their efforts on the ex-employees that admitted to having made off with intellectual property. Further, Xpeng has maintained that when it found out that Apple was investigating IP theft, it immediately froze the employee out and eventually fired him.
It's not totally clear how cooperative Apple will be with Tesla's requests, given that the two are now technically competitors in the race to bring real Level 4 and 5 self-driving car tech to market, but considering that Tesla is going after an employee rather than the company that hired him, we're thinking it's unlikely.
Neither Tesla nor Apple immediately responded to Roadshow's request for comment.

They'll be bought by Rivian who is working with Ford and Volkswagen.

In the end hydrogen is going to decimate the EV market.
