    Without "buffer battery" its unreliable solution, because you can't guarantee a permanent electricity supply, in Russia we also have good solar and wind potential, but the problems are about the same. And we're talking about the next few years (where Tesla according to their plans will annually produce a million EV) and I doubt that at this time a "super battery" will be invented with a density of energy and cost as that of fossil fuels.

    You seem to have a problem with selective cognition. As I've said more than once if we take advantage of our own resources the oil producers of the Middle East can go fuck themselves. When electric cars become as affordable, reliable and have the range of an internal combustion car. I'll be the first to trade in any gas burner I may own, unless it's a classic then the eco-nuts can kiss my ass on that score.

    1. Both here and there, the Sun shines for free.
    2. Crude oil is stored, transported, and traded as a global commodity, vastly by multinational (stateless), zero tax paying corporations. There is no "our own". There exists only a tiny cadre of billionaires robbing us all blind, destroying the planet, and corrupting our govts into stupidly and endlessly warring with one another on their behalf... because they are psychotic... will simply never have enough... and we let them get away with it. Many of us even go way out our way to help them screw us. Go figure.

    Wow, I am a few years out of date. Not exactly a lie as when i was doing the research for my solar modules that was the number. Forgive me for not being as up to date as you wish. Far, far from an intentional lie clown boy.

    And if solar were the end all and be all you claim IT WOULD ALREADY BE THE DOMINANT ENERGY SOURCE ON THE PLANET.

    Solar power for the time being does not have the efficiency or output that fossil fuels do. The sun doesn't shine 24/7 and storage capacity needs serious improvement, and solar will never be able to touch nuclear.

    I'm curious how are the Billionaires robbing you or anyone else.

    If you're 3 years old...OK, maybe 12...and plan to stay in the house YOU personally own right now for the next 15 or so years then, yeah, you might break even on solar. But if you wait much longer to dump the house on the market you'll have to replace those spendy batteries to get a sale moving and then you might as well settle in for another decade or so.
