Tough to relax when the dow is up 200 and your stock is going red : ) after all ready getting throttled
I wonder if solar stocks will start to rally when the bloodshed in oil stocks abates?
said, Chairman of GCL, Tang Cheng said "explosive growth" in distributed generation would help China get over the line, with the nation on track to achieve its utility-scale aim of 6GW.
Industry analyst IHS recently said in early October that China would "definitely" miss the distributed solar target.
Hmmmm, I would tend to believe the chairman on GCL over IHS.
but, but, but ... this is the best investment (SPWR) the market has ever seen, says Werner.
That must be why he's selling
There should be a law against that, saying one thing and doing the exact opposite.
You see it ! I wonder why the late to the party shorts can't
Above $225, and it's off to the races once again
If Oil stays around $60-70, it will be a tax cut for the average consumer at the pump, putting more money in their pockets to spend.
Banks will not take a big hit via their investments in oil drilling expansion and the markets will hit a new high, very shortly.
Exactly! If the multiplication cell is a viable, cost effective improvement, it is still years from commercialization.
Let's just make oil free for everyone.
That was essentially Kurzweil's prediction for the price of solar in time.
Doesn't make alot of sense, does it?
Everything breaking down ... oil, nat gas, dr. copper, etc ...
but the jobs numbers were spectacular
Expect we'll get a little bounce soon, seems overdone
Not pumping, not even long, but did nibble on some NSANY.
The only other competition in the 200+ mile range as far as I know is Tesla.
BYD is close ... but the above mentioned offerings come at a much higher cost.
Improvements in COST, RANGE, CHARGE TIME are the 3 elements that will propel EV's to a mass market acceptance. Nissan is saying they've nailed 2 of the 3 while improving charge time and charge availability.
Oh, and what does this mean for SPWR ... well Nissan North America and SunPower have teamed up to help Nissan LEAF electric vehicle owners learn how a residential solar power system from SunPower can reduce their carbon emissions and control the cost of charging their electric vehicles.
Nissan LEAF owners are eligible for a special offer to receive a rebate of up to $1,500 when they buy or $500 when they lease a SunPower system.
Could the largest selling EV in the world saying they've made a battery breakthrough have something to do with it? Twice the range, lighter battery, at less the cost of today's battery.
200 miles per charge is the sweet spot, where range anxiety will abate while costs come down dramatically.
The only factor needed for EV's to be truly competitive with conventional autos is for the charge time and availability of charging stations to improve.
80% charge in 30 mins, is not quite there yet, but it's close.
Announced Friday that SunPower Corporation will be chosen to build a solar facility on the Arsenal that would produce up to 18,000 megawatt-hours a year in renewable energy.
10 MW project? maybe someone can help with the conversion?
Feels like something going on in the energy space, a correction, deeper than most expected, which is taking down the whole sector. No reversal in oil, just a small bounce so far.
I've joined mtwashingtonmike on the sidelines.
Always seems to happen this way, analysts give glowing pt's , get out over the skis after being wrong for a while on the downside.
