Instead of the conventional 25-year roof, how would you like to install solar roofs that would effectively cost less, better insulation, last almost 75 years for your house, with more appealing styles to choose from, no less?! Yesterday, the unveiling of  Tesla’s new Solar Roof took place at the Desperate Housewives set in LA, CA. The original roof had been replaced by solar roof tops (photos above)! Can you really tell that these are solar roof tops if I didn’t mention it in advance?

Our WonderWorker Elon Musk continues to amaze us! When I first heard  the news about Tesla may be acquiring Solar City, I suspected that Elon is cooking something in that genius kitchen of his…..behold! We are all totally ecstatic yesterday, upon receiving the news about Tesla’s new Solar Roof and his presentation about the three critical components in accelerating our transition toward the sustainable future: Generation-Storage-Transport—–>Solar Roof-Battery-EV —-> Solar Roof-Tesla’s Powerwall 2-Tesla’s EV. I did not write Tesla’s Solar Roof-Tesla’s Powerwall 2-Tesla’s EV because the vote regarding the acquisition is on November 17, not yet a fait accompli. Personally, I believe it would be a wise step for Solar City to take, to become part of Elon Musk’s  Solution To The Energy Equation. There will be a lot of individuals, families, groups, businesses that will want to take part in solving the global warming problem and in reducing CO2 emission. Furthermore, for those who want to drive an EV, one expects that they are also more likely to also want to install solar roof tops and vise versa.

Elon also pointed out that the future is bright for both utilities and local power generation (solar roof tops) because as we transition our energy use into all electric, that will roughly triple the electricity that will be needed.

In Elon’s presentation of a beautiful, affordable, and seamlessly integrated future: EV(electric vehicle)+Powerwall+Solar Roof awaits us, shown below:

For all the solar installers out there, it might be a good idea to devote part of your business to subcontract for Tesla/Solar City, because this integrated solar roof will probably be proprietary in the next few years.

We Look Forward To Our Renewable/Solar Future!

As one of the audience at the unveiling shouted out, “Elon, Save Us!”

Elon, now help us to get the solar self-driving car !

May There Be Plenty of Sunshine For Solar Impulse 2 To Cross The Pacific Ocean

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

Solar Impulse 2 will be taking the longest solo flight of all time, over the Pacific Ocean, between Nagoya, Japan and Hawaii, this weekend (credit: Solar Impulse)

(Please click on red links & note magenta)

Time to update our report for Solar Impulse 2, the Solar Powered Plane: it will continue its historic around-the-world flight (that began back in March 9, 2015, from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates) this weekend with the non-stop, four- or five-day flight over the Pacific Ocean between Japan and Hawaii.  This segment of the journey will be the world’s longest solar-powered flight and the longest solo-airplane flight of all time. It will be “the moment of truth” for the Solar Impulse Team on this mission, as pilot Andre Borschberg called it. Please view the videos below, for the motivation behind the construction and flight of Solar Impulse 2 and portions of its flight on this around-the-world mission, below:

 

 

 

 

The cofounders of Solar Impulse and Solar Impulse 2, Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg, aim to raise awareness of climate change and the importance of using renewable/solar/clean energy.

“The most important thing isn’t to make world records. It is to show what we can do with clean technologies. Clean technologies can reduce CO2 emissions while stimulate economic growth.” Piccard said. “Many of these energy efficient solutions are starting to be commercialized, as they are economically attractive and have real potential to considerably reduce worldwide energy consumption.” Piccard wants to let people know that the technology in the Solar Impulse could be used in cars, houses, and other places. He wants to bring solutions rather than just talk about problems. It is Bertrand Piccard’s life mission to demonstrate to the world that “we can do incredible things with clean and solar technologies.”

Weather permitting, we shall soon see Solar Impulse 2 crossing the Pacific,  from Nagoya, Japan, to Hawaii, on this longest solo flight of all time. Despite difficult weather condition during its seventh leg from Nanjing, China to Honolulu, Hawaii, or its wing damage upon arrival in Japan, Piccard and Borschberg have overcome much obstacles and have been patient and cautious in waiting for a period of four days of good weather condition to take this longest solar powered flight coming up this weekend.

Let us wish these two visionaries, Piccard and Borschberg, and their Solar Impulse Team and family, plenty of sunshine during this upcoming journey crossing the Pacific. The whole planet will be rooting for you!

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers, (Please click on red links below),

As I’ve promised in our previous post (April 7, 2014 post), today is the day for the unveiling of Solar Impulse 2. Allow me to present to you, The Solar Impulse Team with Solar Impulse 2, below:

The Magnificent Solar Impulse 2 and The Team That Made It Possible (credit: Solar Impulse)

So much needs to be done in order to insure a safe and clean world for our future generations! The new challenges we’re facing in Triple E’s: Energy-Environment-Ecology. Our world truly needs new solutions to reduce the negative impacts of human beings on the delicate balance of nature. As Bertrand Piccard pronounced in the video below, “we need political courage and the pioneering spirit” in order to reach our goal and dream of a clean and sustainable world in the future!

To Bertrand Piccard, Andre Borschberg, rest of the Solar Impulse Team and ABB, or ABB Group,we earthlings and solar enthusiasts from around the world owe a debt of gratitude for such a magnificent accomplishment !

Merci pour votre courage et l’esprit pionnier! Nous terriens et les amateurs solaires du monde entier vous devons une dette de gratitude pour un tel accomplissement magnifique!

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(Please click on red links below)

I am ecstatic that this conference will be taking place for the first time: Pathway to 100% Renewable Energy Conference! This is what we should be preparing for into the future! Come and see how international cities such as San Francisco and Munich,  as well as business and communities around the world are setting, achieving, and benefiting from 100% renewable energy targets. Hear from top global experts about cutting edge technical, policy, and financial solutions, on the ground experiences, and the added value of transitioning to 100% renewable energy. Last but not least, join the dialogue about how the transportation sector can best integrate into our 100% renewable energy future.

Do you remember the April 3, 2013 post by our Friend of the Wind persuasion, Paul Gipe , with the bold vision on Pathways to 100% Renewable Energy ?  If you believe in the Renewable Future or are simply amazed at this bold vision, please consider reserving the date and time for April 16, 2012, Tuesday, because there will be a conference on the specific topic of Pathways to 100% Renewable Energy Conference at the Golden Gate Room at Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, CA on various programs, including:
