I was wondering if it could be some sort of "peaker" scam to take advantage of price fluctuation on the grid, but cost/battery life would seem to negate that possibility as a sole motivation. I guess that could defray some of the cost for his "publicity stunt".

I won't go into details, but I understand he was irate with a partner company's engineer when he could not get in touch with him on a recent Christmas eve. Not surprising, he expects everyone to be "going" 24/7/365 - or even more! Reminds me somewhat of Henry Ford though I never knew Henry personally.

Have you looked at Tesla's financials? Battery sales outside automobiles could be huge for growth and profitability.

Please direct us to the part of the financials that leads you to make that statement.

A breakthrough in battery technology would probably have the greatest positive impact on Musk's companies, of anything. It would change the game for both the energy and automotive industries, with SolarCity and Tesla positioned to win big.

Yeah, if he could sell a better battery to a company that can actually meet car orders on time, that could be huge.



What day are we on now, OBCDEFG ?

Did he create TrumpU ? I've always assumed that he just let some shyster hang his name on their project ?


Do you know if anyone is watching the scale-down of your girl's global extortion/pay-to-play network, The Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative ? It would appear her "global reach" has been curtailed just a bit.

If that were the case, one would hope when he discovered his name was being used to con people, he would speak out.

I supported Trump's political platform in supporting his candidacy. The other nonsense that the blowhard had engaged in outside of politics, while concerning, was obviously secondary.

Hildabeast, on the other hand, obviously used any previous political office held by herself and her husband to construct an influence peddling/graft procurement/tax dodge syndicate that would reach it's full potential if she reached the Oval Office.

As evident as that was, either the immorality of such a thing did not matter to you, or you were a blind moron.....which was it ?



But, but...... TrumpU! Trump steaks!! Trump ties made in China!!! You're a clown

Big battery boondoggle day is coming!!!!


Wouldn't it be funny if the test community had every switch on for every power-sapping appliance, and sustained a giant brown-out ?


I'm sure they'll all have LED lighting, everything that's "hungry" will be switched off, and they'll do it after dark. Maybe Musk will even throw some giant Wile E. Coyote switch for maximum effect ?
