If you're asking if I can view the advert, the answer is yes. If you're asking if the thing would be at least a little effective, probably. That final quote in the advert is from the movie "Network", which is oddly enough one of my all time favorite movies, but you  don't have to convince me here; just the more than 60% of Americans who don't believe that our world's climate is changing, and not for the better.

Have a look at a nice new Tesla solar roof, the owner is going to hopefully power is house and charge his car from it, fantastic, can't help but think we are looking at the future here, the potential for this technology is massive and it's from the USA, the Yanks should be proud of this  Cool

I see that Tesla are supplying more large power banks to the world, yeah their Gigafactory doesn't just make batteries for EV's.

I think the plan in the UK is to get rid of most of the gas fired power stations and replace them with power banks that can be used at times of peak demand.

Bit of info here:

Was that video made in the 80's or something  scratch-head  lol

Battery storage is coming both on grid and in homes, it's like the guy has never heard of it or done his research  angry

I refer you to my previous post  thumbsup

In a nutshell the extra free energy that solar and windfarms make will be stored in batteries to be used at peak times, job done  Cheesy

You took the words right out of my mouth, Data. Smiley Large scale battery grid storage may not be here quite yet, but it IS coming, and fairly soon.

I came across this article recently, it was originally posted on January 01, 2018, since then things have been moving at quite a rate.

Quote
The UK Could Install 12 Gigawatts of Energy Storage by 2021

Full Article

Maybe they will hit 12 Gigawatts or less or even more, we do know that they are taking it seriously and thanks to our friends across the pond (Tesla Energy) it could happen even sooner now.

Tesla Energy deploys another Powerpack project in the UK

We also have new energy companies starting up to address the coming EV demands, here is one.

It's all good  Smiley

I know we have looked at solar/power-wall before but it's always good to see a new one installed and get a bit more info.

This technology really does work and its here now.
