    V2grid (Vehicle to Grid) and Tesla

    Think of the change going from "bare wire" distribution firms to "smart distribution" firms who regulate individual units spread out in millions of locations. It's great on my whiteboard - but what will it take? PJM Region has one utility called PECO, I think it's in Penn. There, PECO got...

    V2grid (Vehicle to Grid) and Tesla

    In terms of peak load power - it's helpful. In Australia, Tesla built the big battery - why? The payments upon peak demand periods are huge. Up to $3000 AUD per MWh delivered. That's enormous as in the USA, during regular times, it is $20 USD per MWh wholesale. In the PJM grid segment...

    V2grid (Vehicle to Grid) and Tesla

    When the charger port design (ie. the Tesla plug) was designed, forethought for this era should have been done. Now, well maybe they will redesign something for N.America and consider doing something with a refresh. Then everyone can upgrade to new cars (great for sales numbers) which can work...

    V2grid (Vehicle to Grid) and Tesla

    The Complete Picture of V2H/V2G. You're plugged in at home (or even work) and have a software agreement to allow output of say 2KW for 10kWh if the grid needs it on peak summer days. Pays .60/kWh to dump up to 10kWh per day. This buys you lunch on a peak load day. Such agreements would make...

    V2grid (Vehicle to Grid) and Tesla

    V2H actually is a thing in Japan. Nissan Leafs were used for those. Also, Generac generators perform monthly (?) running of the ICE engine to basically keep it "healthy" (a few minutes only).

    V2grid (Vehicle to Grid) and Tesla

    Their target market may not be what I see in my world. However, I have multiple neighbors who have generators who fire-up when the power goes out - you can hear it walking outside if the grid (rarely) goes down. People pay $10k or more for this per house. It doesn't add value to the house for...

    V2grid (Vehicle to Grid) and Tesla

    I don't see how Tesla can get through the next 2-3 years without either "hyping" something of future V2H/V2G solutions or actually doing it. First, it's not hard to do. Second, it adds so much value to vehicles that it is a no-brainer. Third, it starts to lean away from using fuels-powered...

    China Market situation and outlook

    Can you give a side by side of the Chinese EV market by showing the 2019 graph for end of June alongside that?

    Had your car removed and delivered to someone else for Q2 sales waiting room

    Europe delivery now has priority of course. It seems their logistics of creating priority failed going back to things like the Model 3 reservation list (why people stood in line...) The biggest lever you can pull is to tell a human that you will be cancelling the vehicle order and want a full...

    Had your car removed and delivered to someone else for Q2 sales waiting room

    As long as you didn't pay in full before the 30th, it should be fine. You didn't pay in full, did you?

    Model Y - the dirty dozen

    Did they ban you from ordering another one yet or does that come after you refuse a 2nd one due to their quality?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    @tinm Did the S have a March or May/June build date on it? Seems like it should have been built in the last 3-4 weeks.

    Tesla Energy and utility scale projects

    In order to facilitate the power within the batteries, what is the input power? Overnight baseload? Peaker plants bring in source fuel and create output power through some sort of generator. Batteries make no power out of the ether, so is this just borrowing power from more overnight...

    Tesla Energy and utility scale projects

    Pretty sad to be celebratory about "getting rid of those employees". What if it was your job? Your family? Especially now with 25 Million USA jobs alone being cut. Did you celebrate that too?

    Tesla Energy and utility scale projects

    In the US, there are Generator companies or "Generation" and there are distribution companies or "Utilities". Both are separate and regulated differently. Ratepayer committees within each state work with these companies when they need more money or need to make large cost-based changes that...
