The Tesla And Solar City Merger

Strip away debate about operational synergies and the sustainability of subsidies and you find a single technological article-of-faith animating believers in the companies’ conjoined vision: the idea that fantastically better lifepo4 battery pack are in the imminent future. The battery pack is by far the most expensive component in a Tesla. In a conventional car, there is no equivalent component so expensive and dominant. Fantastically better batteries are key to a future in which electric vehicles (EVs) can make a serious dent in displacing oil in transportation systems.
Similarly, the utopian vision of distributed rooftop solar is fundamentally dependent on the belief that fantastically better and cheaper batteries will soon be available to do the obvious: keep the lights, TVs and PCs lit when the sun goes down in order to dispense with the ‘old’ utility grid wherein 70 percent of the electrons derive from burning shale gas and coal. Batteries — far better than anything that exists today — are vital if rooftop solar is to make a serious dent in displacing hydrocarbons and grids used in today’s electrical systems, now portable solar power generator also can use this battery.
