It's Elon Musk vs. Warren Buffett in the Fight for the Future of Solar

Оценок: 10190 | Просмотров: 578726
Jan. 28 -- SolarCity, America’s largest manufacturer and leaser of solar panels, was welcomed into Nevada with economic incentives. But then Nevada’s Public Utilities Commission started charging homes with solar panels more to use the public grid. This is bigger than a fight over solar energy - Nevada Energy, is part of Warren Buffett’s business empire, and Elon Musk is behind SolarCity. The outcome of fight in Nevada could set the course for solar energy adoption across the country. (Video by Ali Withers)

No more electrical wires above will be be the best. Leave it for the individual to collect the electricity only for themselves. Independently taking energy from the sun is it for the future.

the problem is deeper then just warren buffett, its that he and many other rich people are buying our politicians and then doing things like this. we live in a sudo oligarchy that is the real problem.

The real problem is power companies have no storage. So add battery back up to your system. You may be able to go off grid.

The distribution companies are prepared to pay home owners with grid-connected solar panels the going rate of any generation company. As such it isn't 1:1, but rather you will sell to the grid at a much lower price during over-supply than the price it is to be bought back later in the day. Disconnecting won't necessarily solve the problem, because one may be charged to maintain the network whether connected or not.

Musk is an innovator and inventor, his mind creates technologies that produce value, improve human living and knowledge, and advance humanity. Buffet is a financial investor, his mind creates schemes to profit off other peoples innovation, increases inequality by hoarding wealth while denying it to others, and advances his own personal agenda. Do not compare these two people
Stephen Kiernan (28 дней назад)
Solar equals feedom. As long as someone else pays the cost for them. Why don't they disconnect from the grid and pay nothing for electricity? Thats because the sun doesn't shine at night.

This video is pretty slanted in its view of things. People who use rooftop solar do get to unfairly benefit from the power grid. They don’t pay to maintain it and can use it whenever they want at their discretion, other electric customers don’t have that luxury. And by law, the power companies cannot terminate their service (cut the wire), so they have to offer them electric service no matter what. As a result, everyone else’s electric bill goes up to pick up the burden rooftop solar users drop. Warden Buffett also owns 80+ companies and probably had no idea this was happening. And of course the power company has a monopoly, if not there could be 3 sets of electric lines criss crossing America as apposed to mainly one set everywhere. The cheapest way to make solar power, especially in Nevada, is to take up hundreds of acres in a field of solar panels and create battery storage stations. This saves everyone money on their power bill over the long run and helps the environment. Thank you for reading this whole thing if you actually did.

Why can't they go off grid by buying a battery. And they can give the middle finger to Warren Buffett.
Dave Allen (1 месяц назад)
It's a lot more complicated than that.. The solution is just as complicated if not more so . I don't like it and I am not happy about it, but the grid equals national security and a safe public. Making both work is not going to be an easy endeavor. If masses of people leave the grid in a short period of time, local governments will have to pay huge spikes in energy cost to run the town. Stop lights, street lighting, public buildings, hospitals, schools, etc.. They would have to spike taxes so in the end you aren't saving anything anyway, that is the main issue we have to figure out. Why do you think Obama gave billions to the energy companies, and didn't give any to the people wanting to go off-grid? It's simple really, the country would have collapsed under the weight of taxes and insanely high electric bills. They scream save the planet but have no real solutions to making that happen.

Few facts that even if all coal/ gas plants are shut down we'll need the grid . So a equitable system of cost sharing should be evolved to pay for it's maintenance & Upgrades. Environment impact of power generation charge, can be one revenue streams just for that. Besides a small percentage( actual losses+ 2-4%) of Power fed to grid from solar roof tops should be appropriated for grid maintenance. A holistic approach will be best for us

Power lines and power stations cost a lot of money. It is honestly probably better to let the corporations switch to renewables instead of letting regular people shoulder the risk, people who are not educated in the power and utility business. Berkshire has invested billions and billions into renewables.

Maybe Tesla's Power Pack-2 could be a solution if physically capable of handling all electrical homer's needs and get the hell off the grid totally, and see how W. Buffett likes that.This action would be a wake-up call to any other Solar investor to really look at getting away from the electrical grid in regards to the Nevada state home owners...let alone any other USA states Solar Converters???. the way I see things anyways....from a  friend in need is friend in deed!...hey Canada

perhaps let them have their solar panels back from your roof, then buy a much smaller solar panel set up just for your needs or try n buy their share of the panels so u can own them yourself and go OFF GRID , they cant charge you for the grid if you are not on it.

People say Warren Buffet is bad, and Elon musk is terrible or bad. I say this, capitalism doesn't help two opposition to collaborate and help beneficially for the earth, human longevity, and the environment. What's the whole point to stay in buisiness when these rich people can't even take care the planet they are living on. AND it's also all of us to take into account too. It's unfair for a selected few to be rich, to be a socialite and ruin it for everyone else. No one is selfless to say hey, the Earth is more important, humans as a sepcies is more important, and find new energy sources before our primitive coal, oil, and fuel gets depleted and runs out there isn't much time left for anyone.

Can people live on solar only ? Because if they think that solar and wind can do it alone, they have a claim. However, if they cant, they have to be conscious that it does not pay for the coal or oil energy industry to power just "when solar is down". That is a fact, it is not just greedy capitalists. If you had a car that you cant turn off, you would not keep it while you do most of your moving on a bike or by foot. It is nice to think that the World works the way you want, but most times it doesnt.

Peak energy use is in the dark so solar isn't the answer, they were right to jack up peak period costs because u still need the same number of power plants with or with out solar but they still have to be paid for. These people got stung because u can't trust the government or the democrat lies. I'd be suing the solar company's for covering the facts. I don't get blaming buffet...

It would take more capital, but if these existing solar owners put in sufficient battery storage, and switch to electric cars, perhaps they can use all the solar they are generating themselves PLUS reduce their electricity bills to zero AND stop paying for gasoline. I think this is the most obvious solution, prior to running the actual numbers.
