Tesla Battery Powerwall Boss Talks Carbon Tax (Notable Quote)
Elon Musk
Date: 2021-04-30
"I talked to the Biden administration, and they were like 'Well, this seems too politically difficult' and I was like, 'Well, this is obviously a thing that should happen', and by the way, SpaceX would be paying a carbon tax too. So I'm like, you know, I'm like, I think we should pay it too. It's not like we shouldn't have carbon generating things. It's just that there's got to be a price on this stuff.

"If we just put a price on carbon emissions, the market will react in a sensible way. But because we don]t have a price on it, it is behaving badly. It's either we have sustainable energy or civilization collapses. And so if civilization doesn't collapse we will have sustainable energy, it's just a question of how soon does that happen. Sooner is better." -- Elon Musk, Feb., 2021)

    Notable Quote -- Elon Musk Talks Solar Shingle Prices
    Tesla,Solar City
    Date: 2019-06-14
    "I am very excited about version 3 of solar roof. We have a shot at being equal to a comp shingle roof plus someone's utility cost or being lower than that. That's one of the cheapest roofs available. So you can have a great roof with better economics than a normal fairly cheap roof and your utility bill." -- Elon Musk, Tesla, CEO

    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.

    As previously reported, in an effort to counter sinking installations at its Solar City subsidiary, Tesla has slashed prices by one-third or more in what is seen as a "last gasp effort" to reverse plunging sales.

    In 2015, the year before it was acquired by Tesla, SolarCity installed 870 MW of solar systems shrinking to 326 MW of installations in 2018 under Tesla's ownership.

    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.

    FCA Links With Tesla to Beat European Emission Fines

    Date: 2019-04-19
    FCA, whose brand portfolio includes Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep and Maserati, will pay for the right to count Tesla’s electric vehicles as part of its fleet under a so-called “open pool” option permitted by EU emission regulations. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles signs a deal with Tesla that will allow it to avoid paying fines for exceeding European Union carbon-dioxide emission limits from 2021, the Financial Times has reported. FCA, whose brand portfolio includes Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep and Maserati, will pay for the right to count Tesla’s electric vehicles as part of its fleet under a so-called “open pool” option permitted by EU emission regulations. Under the EU regulations, the average emissions of a company’s new-car fleet in 2021 must be 95 g/km or less – compared with the 130g/km regulation in force today. The EU fleet averages are calculated on the number of cars sold. While Tesla’s European sales are relatively small, its electric-powered Model 3, Model S and Model X will allow FCA to significantly lower its fleet average emissions owing to the fact that they don’t emit any CO2. In a statement, FCA says its “open pool” alliance with Tesla will “optimize the options for compliance that the regulation offer(s).” It adds: “FCA is committed to reducing the emissions of all our products. The purchase pool provides flexibility to deliver products our customers are willing to buy while managing compliance with the lowest-cost approach.” (Source” Tesla, FCA, Wardsauto, 9 April, 2019)

    Alt. Energy Border Wall Proposed (Opinions, Editorials & Asides)
    Clean Energy
    Date: 2019-04-15
    The following appeared in the recent issue of Epoch Times: "Border wall debates have raged between political parties and the media in the United States for years. Many Americans are divided over the issue of the U.S.-Mexico border. Yet the heated controversy has generated some innovative solutions from the scientific community. Could science really hold the key to bringing the two sides together (three, including Mexico) while at the same time providing clean sources of energy for all?

    "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)

    GMP Powerwall Program Saves Cool $500K During Heat Wave (Ind. Report)
    Green Mountain Power
    Date: 2018-07-23
    Vermont utility Green Mountain Power is reporting it drew electricity out of about 500 Tesla Powerwall batteries installed in the home of about 400 customers and fed it into the grid during a heat wave earlier this month. This meant GMP purchased less electricity from power plants when the wholesale price of power in New England, which changes every five minutes depending on demand and supply, was particularly high.

    This had a double price benefit. It saves on the momentary energy charge, but more importantly it can reduce the utility's payment to the bulk transmission system in New England. That charge is based on usage during the hour of the year when the most electricity was being used. GMP will cut its annual grid costs, explaining a large portion of the nearly $500,000 it says it saved. If a higher peak hour happens later in the year, that number can change.

    Under the GMP Powerwall program, a customer can buy one of the Powerwall 2.0 batteries for $1,500, less than a fifth of the usual cost, if they let GMP draw electricity from the battery at times. A single Powerwall 2.0 provides 13 kWh of power, which can run an efficient house for a day.
