Solar and bats ......maybe in the real long term view.

So far nothing matches the energy density of liquid fuels, except nuclear. Lithium bats make a good try but I suspect they still don't make it, and they are currently $$$$$$$$$$$ in large qualtitites.

Other issue is a "normal" sized array of bats won't cut it for multiday outages in northeast winters. No sun , and power usually fails after an ice or snow storm when the solar array will be covered with opaque snow. So no recharge with solar for a while unless you get out the shovel, but with ice you wan't wont to wack the fragile $$$$$$$ solar arrays.

If it runs on BEER cans, then I have several potential customers in mind.

Reminds me of Dr Emmett Browns DeLorean, in Back to the Future. The fuel used by the car in the last movie.

Tesla's idea of solar tile is very impressive and good looking. I like that it's supposed to last the lifetime of the house vs asphalt shingles. Problem is the devil's in the details. And the capital cost.

-- weight ......hopefully it will weight less than slate roofs which also last life of the house. With slate the roof needs to be structurally reinforced to take the weight.

-- all those solar tiles will have to have waterproof connections, lot of possible failure points.

-- that Lithium bat is a little scarry for fire safty. It likely contain as much energy as a gasoline tank. I would prefer it to be stored outside or underground for fire safty.

I sense a lot of resistance.

Yes battery and solar systems have a way to go yet.
But the pace of change is fast.
Look how much cheaper and better they are today than 5 years ago and extrapolate that 5 years into the future.

Here is another technology I have been watching for sometime now and wondering if it will go anyplace.
