Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Tesla has begun accepting preorders for its Solar Roof. Discuss here if you think solar is affordable, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

I live in Buffalo & know what a joke this has become. The biggest joke is that they built a monstrous building & didn't install a single solar panel on it. How's that for confidence in their own product?

Seems they are opting for a hydroelectric power source, but they will have solar panels,
albeit, probably not a roof full.

Well Fubbalo is pretty close to a more or less endless source of hyro-electric power... Niagara Falls. At least on "our" (the Canadian) side of the falls we generate a fair amount of power; and it's clean, no fumes, and the staff don't glow in the dark etc...

And the water flow is a lot more reliable than the sun... Certainly in February, and frequently from November through to March overall. It's free - courtesy of Ma Nature; and even if places further inland - to the west - are a little short of rain, the Falls still "falls"...

But being a little less "phlipant..." If someone can come up with efficient, inexpensive, reliable, long life, and easy to install and maintain solar panels - Tesla might be one possible?

Nuclear, hydroelectric and solar are nothing compared to the untapped potential of flubber.
