    From your link this is funny and the same could be said about battery electric cars..



    3 Pumped storage hydroelectricity generation is negative because most pumped storage electricity generation facilities use more electricity than they produce on an annual basis. Most pumped storage systems use fossil fuels or nuclear energy for pumping water to the storage component of the system

    Lol....we are always seeing these lofty growth statistics being posted up by members of the religion on wind and solar power! They look impressive....until you see these government statistics.
    Wind and solar still a total joke....far less than 10% of our grid. And solar? 1.3%:cul2::cul2:

    Tesla seems to have a better battery product. And advances in super-capacitors is already in progress.

    There are already plenty of automakers.

    Natural, uncontrolled lightning converts to plasma energy at some point. Harvesting electrical energy could happen before that process occurs.

    Wind and Solar statistics are derived from surveys the utility fills out.
