Oct. 31 -- Tesla unveiled its first ever solar product at an event at Universal Studios in Los Angeles on October 29, 2016. And it's not a solar panel - it's a range of four solar roofing materials that look almost indistinguishable from high-end terracotta, slate, or asphalt shingles. Bloomberg's Tom Randall explains why Tesla wants a solar-powered trifecta.
I hope i was living in US or Canada. Because here, in Indonesia, we don't get solar roof, or powerwall, or some other stuff. (Or at least easily). The fact that I live in a tropic country like indonesia, pretty far of form cool products that are available in America, is pretty sad. Also, other than that, i live in a pretty small village or town you may say. Because there are not so much light (espesially at rain season), separate me even further with solar technology, because it's just not worth it. But i will use tesla solar roof and piwerwall, IF i can get tesla stuff easily here, and not so expensive. Which is a huge problem, when it come to Indonesia, espesially in small town, the average salary here is around $90 - $120 per month. Plus the fact that $1 can buy you a decent food + drink, makes $5500 battery is just nof worth the price. Even at bigger cities (middle), the average salary is around $120 - $180, and some of the biggest cities salary is around $300 - $600 (which is pretty decent), it's rare, for people here (even a big city) to buy something like a Razerblade or XPS 15.
"I know there's someone who can fix the pricing, but even that, it is not so much of a difference."
Of course hater will be leaping at the comments box, and sure, this stuff aint cheap, but you know whats also not cheap. Oil in the winter months. Oil when your local city and state decides to get all greedy and jack up the taxes for the oil you purchase be it for your home or cars. yes its Mostly city and state that increase the oil prices. Indeed world conflicts and demands dont help as well. The ever growing damage from global warming will force countries to restrict oil use, driving up prices, at the end of the day having a suedo free suedo off the grid alternative is always a good thing. Yes their will be other companies eventually offering such products for far cheaper, but when? and what kinda service warantees will they have. And how much of that will be linked to China or India. At least with Tesla your getting a truly american based an serviced product. And at best, even if Tesla product knock 50% of your cost down, that 50% of major expenses. anything more is a god-send.
It's still surprise me just how some people
have no idea about Noboremed Secrets (just search it on google) even
though many people cures their skin disease naturally using it. Thanks
to my mate who told me about this. I've eliminated my skin problem for
good with natural ways.
Everyone knows that Tesla's time lines are a joke, and that "skepticism" is well-founded when one talks about a company that's not turned a yearly profit for it's investors in it's 13 year history. What's been produced so far of the "trifecta" is a slick looking promotional film that doesn't have to be evaluated and tested in real life conditions to confirm that it will actually deliver on promises.
+bohnstube If Tesla didn't invest all of there earnings (and then some) back in R&D and expansion they would have been turning over major profit already. Have you even taken a look at there financial reports?
+Abdukahor Muzaffarzoda "Abdukahor Muzaffarzoda": See what you've done there? You've just said that anybody who prefers actual, tangible, MONEY IN YOUR HANDS, AS REFLECTED IN THE STOCK PRICE OF A COMPANY THAT'S ACTUALLY INCREASING IN VALUE, over slickly made promotional films and promises based on scenarios of "when", IS A "HATER". Presumably while fanboys who have absolutely nothing to show for their "fanboy love" other than a company which has lost 30 percent of its stock price value over the last 16 months, and who still even after 13+ years pin their hopes on promotional films and sketchy promises are, "visionaries"? Yeah. Sure.
+Abdukahor Muzaffarzoda "Abdukahor Muzaffarzoda": NO, *YOU'RE* the one who's "forgetting" that slick, circle-jerking promotional films meant to appease investors aren't RESULTS. And neither are fanboy phrases that throw out hopes that proclaim that real profits are 'almost here!', like "once it's producing", and "when (a particular plant is finished)". RESULTS aren't promo films and predictions.
bohnstube Your forgetting the fact that they made 22 million in the third quarter. Tesla is very early in its stage and once it's producing the model 3 and finishes the giga factory then you will see more profits. Tesla has beat the expectations of many naysayers and it will continue do so into the future.
+nameless DVD players were expensive once. Once they get them in production and people buy them, they get mass produced and the costs go down. The reason we haven't got panels on every home on the planet is because it would destroy the billion dollar energy companies over night. We can't get free energy because these 1% fat cats want there private jets.
