According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Tesla's next generation of solar roof tiles will be even less expensive than initially announced after Tesla's 2017 merger with Solar City. Today, a standard asphalt shingle roof can cost as little as $4 per square foot. In 2018, the Solar City solar tiles cost about $21.85 per square foot.
Tesla acquired SolarCity in 2016 for $2.6 billion and planned to offer solar panels and home battery storage systems to consumers through its retail stores and online. In 2018, Tesla cut prices on its residential solar systems and its often touted solar roof tiles have not yet been produced on a commercial scale.

"There are at least two dozen scientists from universities across the United States who think so, but wait until you hear the solution they've dreamt up. Imagine a 2,000-mile-long alternative energy industrial park, 62 miles wide, from sea to shining sea along the U.S. southern border.
"The potential envisioned for everything from the economy to fresh water solutions to an abundance of clean energy and, yes, border security present an opportunity worth considering. 'Given that most of the southern border lies in arid or semi-arid regions having high solar irradiation and wind, an energy park along the border is both feasible and desirable,' reads a statement by the Future Energy, Water, Industry and Education Park (FEWIEP), the name of the proposed mega project.
"Solar installations at various points across Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and south of the border would accompany wind turbines stationed near both coasts. 'Areas of strong winds exist in the Gulf and Baja California regions, which are ideal for wind farms,' the report explains.
"Energy produced via wind turbines can be used to power water desalinization plants to provide valuable fresh water to drought-affected areas that have been living beyond their means in terms of ground water use.
"They estimate that 'wind power in the Gulf Coast and Baja California to operate reverse osmosis plants may provide 2.3 million acre-feet of water per year -- enough to satisfy the water needs for all of Texas' manufacturing, mining, livestock, and other power needs.' Which could literally cause the desert to bloom, potentially.
"Reduced tax zone incentives across the 62-mile strip could bring in massive amounts of business from solar energy innovators like Tesla and others. This subsidy cost could be recouped through selling energy or through taxes. An incentivized project of this size could greatly enhance and accelerate the local economy, and create a huge number of jobs on both sides of the border. More high-paying salaries are also likely to mean increased average quality of life for locals.
"In terms of security, the heavily protected area would serve a dual purpose. The proposed energy infrastructure can be incorporated into and be an integral part of a border security installation, such as a wall or a fence, states the report. 'This technological buffer can in turn also help to protect the energy infrastructure and prevent illegal immigration across the border.'
"At the same time, as parties on both sides of the aisle are starting to see eye to eye on border security, a project like this could tether the far extremes of the Green New Deal with staunch nationalists on the right. It could be just the kind of unifier to seal the deal for all parties, left and right, north and south." (Source: Epoch Times, April, 2019)

The plan is part the utility's SRP 2035 long term growth plan, as laid out at the close of its 2018 fiscal year.
By 2025, SRP anticipates 11 pct of its energy needs will be met by solar and avoid another 11 pct of its current supply level from energy-efficiency measures. The utility's energy storage plan includes the purchase of a 25 MW/100 MW-hour battery storage system from Tesla, to be installed at the Agua Fria Generating Station in Glendale, California.
SRP notes that it paid over $150 million in solar incentives to approximately 20,000 customers between August 2004 and April 2018, and $205 million since May 2008 in energy efficiency incentives resulting in an overall 2.14 pct annual incremental energy savings exceeding the 2 pct annual target.

States like South Australia and Victoria have begun ramping up their renewable energy capacity, and grid managers are beginning to focus on integrating energy storage -- i.e. the mammoth Hornsdale Power Reserve, a 129 MWh Tesla lithium-ion energy storage facility in South Australia, which was turned on for the first time towards the end of 2017.
The new $7 million ($5.23 million US) in funding seeks to further develop new technologies that can provide grid stability and security services as well as support projects such as system strength provision, frequency control ancillary services (FCAS), fast frequency response (FFR), inertia provision and measurement, and other services that may enhance system security.
The Hornsdale Wind Farm in South Australia was a beneficiary of funding from ARENA to trial frequency control ancillary services (FCAS) (as was the 168 MW Musselroe Wind Farm in Tasmania which is still underway) and is now registered for six of eight FCAS markets in Australia.
