And 20,000 Model X reservations up to February. And taking Reservations for PowerWalls and taking Reservations for PowerPacks so much work so little time.... Tests on Wednesday for human launches to the ISS.... Oh, we have that Solar factory going up, and the battery factory. And 41 days until launch 24 to the iss. Oh, the spaceport going up in Texas, hmm get Self Driving cars working, and the hyperloop, Working on the Model 3. And that is just the start....
Don't be a business hater!
As of April 1 of this year, the state's coal industry had 10,356 persons on its payrolls, the lowest total since recordkeeping began 88 years ago.
The end of the fourth quarter of 2014 reported 11,586 miners on the job. That means 1,230 Kentucky coal jobs were lost in the first three months of this year, the highest quarterly decline in about two years.
Most of the job losses over the last several years occurred in the East Kentucky coalfields but this time the West Kentucky mines also reported substantial cutbacks.
State officials confirm that Kentucky has the fewest coal employees since companies came into the state in the 1920’s and hired thousands of workers.
History tells us that the mining companies built entire towns such as Lynch and Jenkins to provide homes, schools and churches for their miners and their families.
As depressing as the first quarter figures are, however, that’s not the end of the bad news for coal.
An official of the Kentucky Coal Association, said last week that other layoffs have yet to be reported in the state statistics.
Also, more than two dozen electrical generating plants that now use coal either are closing entirely or switching to natural gas in the next two years.
Waaa waaaa waaaaaa. And Tesla will STILL come out 130 times bigger than Government Welfare Queen ACI which is close to BK despite subsidies.
COAL IS DEAD!
The white male boys league will knock him off like they did Herman if he gets too "uppedy" they may give them some token position, but don't let it go too far. Herman almost scared them.
It now appears that Goldman has had enough. The firm is in talks to sell the coal mines at a loss, according to people familiar with the negotiations. Any deal, coming after Goldman’s prior sales of power plants and an aluminum-storage business, would mark the end of the firm’s rocky sideline as a producer of raw materials.

Oh, it's just oil! New one every 2 years?
We did find a problem with the Powerwall.... 2KW output with a 3.3KW peak. So you almost need multiple Powerwalls.....
2KW output IS too low. Which means I would go back to a Lead-Acid Solar One battery with a Schneider Conext charger/inverter. Yes I have to engineer a solution with running a house on even the the lower output of that system Green living comes demands planning...... :-)
There are many houses that WILL run on that system. Pick your size. 10KWH would be too small for me too, but 2 or 3 of them would be fine. My consumption is about 10KWH per day. And many of the tasks could be accomplished during the day right off the solar panels. Running a NG generator costs money while solar is free. Goal is OFF THE grid. NOT backup. AC cost/consumption does NOT have to be huge ever hear of INSULATION? Yes I could create a home that uses below 10KWH per day. Go as big or as small as you want.....
Not everybody owns a car. Consumption at night can be well below 10KWH...
And to repeat you CAN run some houses on the 10KHW battery....
Oh, no here come the conservatives against coal!
Even For People Who Live In Areas That Do Not Receive As Much Sunlight As Others, Solar Panels Can Help Them Generate Electricity: Power4Patriots Encourages Homeowners To Start Getting Off The Grid With Solar Panels And Wind Turbines
NASHVILLE, TN / ACCESSWIRE / May 3, 2015 / Solar energy is the wave of the future, but some U.S. city officials and individual homeowners in areas that don’t receive as much sunlight as others may wonder if an investment in solar panels makes sense for them.
According to a recent article in the (Rochester, N.Y.) Democrat & Chronicle, the answer can be found in Germany. The European country has the largest installed base of solar generation in the world, despite having fewer hours of sunlight than many areas around the world.
Berlin receives an average of 1,625 hours of sunlight per year, while Rochester, N.Y., receives an average of 2,300 hours. Phoenix, Ariz., checks in with 3,870 hours of sunlight per year on average. While cloud-free environments are best for solar generation, any amount of sunlight, even if filtered by clouds, includes photons that can generate some amount of electricity.
Power4Patriots officials say the best way to keep electricity flowing during blackouts and to reduce monthly power costs is to become independent of the vulnerable U.S. power grid. They recommend that people learn how to generate their own electricity through the installation of solar panels and wind turbines.
Power4Patriots was created as a way to allow anyone to become independent of high power bills and outages. Cost-effective and uncomplicated, Power4Patriots teaches people how to build their own, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
There are OTHER technologies out there ready to come out on line. This will inspire them to come out faster.
Get READY cuz here we come!
It's such a big job to replace some of this stuff, there is room for every body.
And I don't want any more monopolies even Elon Musk! Neither does he.
Yes, in a few years, the goal for a 10KW Powerwall will be $1,000.....
So pick your time to buy....
Also solar will be MUCH CHEAPER too....
But a system purchases today, even at these prices will save money in the long run...
Big bosses' pay seems to go in one direction: Up
Arch Coal raised CEO John Eaves’ salary by 15 percent and handed him total compensation of $7 million even as it was losing money. The company said it needed to offer competitive pay “to attract and retain executive talents.”
COAL IS DEAD! Arch Coal is DEAD!
WOW! What a TANTRUM! Quit your sobbing!
Solar WORKS and saves money........
That is why solar/wind is starting to win.....
COAL IS DEAD!
Are they going to be American this time? After 2 failed deliveries to the ISS, Elon is looking pretty good about now.........
Amazon is a competitor using Elons batteries......
Have to love the competition.
Except Elon DELIVERS the IMPOSSIBLE!
Jealous people. Just because I can't do 1/10th the things that he does means I gonna hate him.
He is gonna shake up the world! He already is. And I love it.
Oh, it's our grid! You are freeloaders on OUR grid!
OK, boys we don't NEED you! Elon says... :-)
Jim Cramer Warns Tesla Motors Powerwall May Break The Power Grid
im Cramer says that Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) may actually break the power grid with the company’s new Powerwall battery system. The CNBC commentator told Squawk on the Street, that the company’s latest product could break the grid if Tesla managed to get it into 50 million commercial institutions and 200 million homes.
Tesla breaks the grid
There are two ways in which the Tesla Motors battery could plausibly break the power grid, one more positive and in line with Cramer’s thinking, the other a less desirable outcome. It wasn’t clear from yesterday’s Powerwall presentation what the charging rate on the Tesla Energy Powerwall would be off of the grid, but if it’s large it could create a huge amount of extra load should things go wrong.
We can do it WITH you or WITHOUT you. It would be better to do it with you, but if you pull your BS, we will do it WITHOUT you... Ha ha ha ha!
