Are you a TSLA stockholder and trying to pump up the valuation? This is where I worry that sales estimates and rumors don't match with actual facts and results. Be careful if so.

They built a lot of Model S for export to Europe and also took 1st week of July off at the plant.

Even with CA's incentives - why aren't they selling more in CA and in other states like CO, IL and PA with these big incentives? The sales of Volts are 1/10th nationally compared to Impalas (same prices MSRP as a Volt) and Malibus. I think people just don't understand EVs yet and don't trust them due to the media and right-leaning "plays" against EV adoption.

Off grid will accelerate when lithium battery systems grow in use. Lad acid systems using AGM deep cycle batteries still have a five year replacement cost. Lithium systems should work for 12-15 years before considering battery replacement.

Thank jimmy carter for his executive order not allowing nuclear fuel to be recycled like in France. If we had this, we could do a whole lot better with nuclear. Japan and russia screwed up nuclear with their accidents and we are all now afraid of it. Doesn't have to be that way.

The answer is to get electric companies to get more individuals driving EVs and using more of their product, but electric companies cannot go out there and advertise this. They must be agnostic while trying to grow unit sales of kWh. Power firms need people to use more nighttime and early morning electricity and mart meters, TOU plans and EVs are the way to do that.

Tell your friends and take me on a test drive in your EVs. The only way ev growth will occur is through private peer pressure. Everyone else wants to detract from how great they are with untrue "facts" and political bents.

Commented On: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars More Viable With Cheaper, More Efficient Electrolysis?

Storing and shipping H2 produced is problematic. Plus, your car's H2 tank will have leakage over time. It is "almost electricity" if you think about it. A Li-Ion battery will store energy with far less losses than an H2 delivery system.

H2 is best for space travel. An Air Products engineer told me that in 2012. And he works for a firm that creates a whole lot of H2 and would stand to benefit if an H2 fleet came about. He was showing off a $1 Million car with a H2 fuel cell at a renewable energy fair.

The EV Project? Yeah - they did use a lot of that government money to install overpriced stations to the point of exhausting their funds before the promised rollout fully occurred. More "government money" spent to excess. Some results were seen but "chargers per dollar" spent was way too low.

What would be good is if Car Rental companies offered EVs for rent in small areas where limited miles are expected. Say San Francisco where you rent at the airport and expect to only put 50-60 miles on the car. Or around LA where there are a lot of public charging stations. That lets people try out an EV for a day or two on their expense report. Also lets EV drivers "also drive an EV" while on business trips.
