      * The Tesla earned 50 million dollar for the SA 129 [MWh] battery station/storage facility. [$50 000 000 / 129 000 kWh] Its more than $250/kWh...

    Tesla Powerwall's have been sold as the band-aid for intermittent, unreliable renewables. But are up to the job? Eco-modernists have analysed it, and remain dismayed about the potential for intermittent, unreliable renewables because the storage would bankrupt any nation that tried to do it! EG: If wind and solar provided just a third of Germany's power it would cost so much money to buy just *one* week of storage that you could instead nuke the entire grid. Backup a third of the grid for a week, or nuke the entire grid for 60 years! If Germany was 100% renewables, the storage would cost 3 times as much for one week. It gets worse. German winters often cut renewables for *many* weeks at a time. Two weeks storage is 6 times as expensive, and three weeks is 12 times as much as nuking the entire grid! Remember, that does not even include buying and maintaining the wind and solar farms in the first place! Point 2 below
    Modern breeder reactors eat nuclear waste, converting a 100,000 year storage problem into centuries of clean energy. The final waste product (fission products) only has to be stored 500 years. They have passive safety systems where the laws of physics take over in any power failure. France shows they can be rolled out fast and economical, and that was with older reactors. Today's reactors can be mass produced. This is not hypothetical. This is history. This is fact.

    Notice how these tesla batteries are NOT being sold to the general public to just anyone. So THEY can operate free from the grid but are sold to elite large corporate grid power providers, so they inturn sell power to the public marked up. One unknown fact is no one can buy a power wall for their own homes or businesses as a stand alone battery bank. You have to pay for tesla to install them and no one else, at their additional noncompetitive pricing.

Did you also know the amount of upkeep required for batteries is way higher for an oil/nuclear plant? Wow! It's like those oil companies are on some "efficiency conspiracy"! Hopefully these new age technologies will save the day and go beyond Moore's Law! Bendable Liquid Crystals! Antenna radiating biotech that can work inside the body! Biomass fuel and fully electrical energy! Materials that are so expensive they will wow you for more than 0.2% of the regular product and 10x times the cost! Wowie Zowie! P.S. Nuclear > Everything.

    On your comment not being sure on the life of the battery packs, it’s reasonable your question as the product is relatively new. The best reference that we can use is Tesla itself and their other product...... Model “S”.
    It has the longest history to present us with hard evidence. The cells used in this car are older technology than what is being used in the power packs and yet, we see recharging % in excess of 93% after 300,000 km (most extreme example from Finland). The data available on this issue is substantial so ample and solid proof that the Panasonic cells are mature and a reliable product

    What's the EROES for the 21700 li-ion battery (or is it 2170?).
    Consider 1/7th the energy ever generated from a solar panel has to go back into the manufacture of its replacement (some 20 years or so in the future), that some amount of that must be put into recycling, and a lot has to go toward the battery (or other storage) manufacture.
    Consider also that the more intermittent, the more panels and more storage needed, meaning less of a positive EROEI.
    Therefore, for solar, we need the longest powerlines possible, the least amount of energy in, for both collection and storage and the most efficient way to recycle.
    I believe it's impossible to get an overall positive EROEI for such systems during the winter unless lots of hydropower and wind is also incorporated.

Japan has been using this innovative technology since 2001. Elon Musk must have heard so why Tesla broke ground on the Gigafactory in June 2014 outside Sparks, Nevada.
    These Ultra Capacitors are able to charge in seconds what took hours. They have designed the product at 1 millimeter thin and molded into body panels on cars or whatever the need!! They encapsulate with carbon fiber and can mold it into any desired configuration((=.. Who needs space or walls full of batteries??? The best part is they are environmentally super Friendly

    Why not make car batteries scalable? Add more if you don't need the extra baggage or passenger space and you're going very long distances? And why not use car batteries in such a way that you can plug in appliances from your home? For camping or going on the road? This could be very useful to those in trailers and mobile homes.

Anyone who wants to and can find financing can build batteries, solar walls, electric cars, etc.

    I am honestly surprised that they can provide such performance at reasonable cost. I would have imagined that transforming the high voltages from the power grid into what batteries can sustain would ruin the efficiency of the systems. But from an environmetal standpoind I think there are better solutions than lithium ion out there (like flow batteries which do not degrade over time). Especially mid term when those cells degrade more and more and recycling is still not where it needs to be to create a closed loop product life cycle.
