    GE Locomotives

    GE makes locomotives, but the truth is that the motors which run them suck. They need the technology for efficient electric motors.

    Locomotives have a diesel generator which generates electricity. But, the wheels are driven by GE electric motors. So, if UQM is so good at making higher efficiency electric motors, why doesn't GE snap up the company and DO IT!

    Give me a break! There are plenty of companies like GE which should have enough motivation - but why are they not buying. They are not going to buy motors from UQM - BECAUSE THEY DON'T SHOW RELIABILITY AND FINANCIAL ABILITY.

    Selling PATENT licenses for production is the way to go.

    Suppose you can save 20% electricity by changing electric motors on a GE locomotive.
    Do you know what that means in fuels savings and to the national energy economy. Well folks, it is not happening! Why?
