    My understanding is the solar panel inverter handles that.
    This is not an easy/cheap conversion to an existing system, as inverters were not set up this way.

    Solar Edge has inverters which...

    Thanks for the info.
    In your case, I would be looking at the 10kWh backup packs. Check with your installer about future expansion.
    What I like most about it, is that the battery install will allow...

    It all depends upon your goals.
    If is a purely a question of economics, probably not.

    We are looking at an annual usage of about 21,000kWh as well (between both our house and cars).
    We will be...

    I invest mainly for income and long term growth.
    That said, I hold some TSLA and would probably be adding to it now if I were not building a house.
    It is a speculative play though and not something...

    GE and O are two of my favorites.
    MMM, JNJ, KO, MCD are some others.

    I won't touch oil, nat gas, or coal stocks.
    Mainly large, solid, dividend paying companies.

    More power to them!
    The more competition the better.

    I don't think they will/can actually do it. But I would love to see it.

    My understanding of the heat pump efficiency is pretty much exactly as you stated.
    Which, in MN, covers a good chunk of time I need to heat the...

    I suspect Pam either misspoke, or was misunderstood.
    Or, GM is calling their heat pump something other than "heat pump":)

    A heat pump is very efficient down to very cold temps. Unless GM has a...

    That is possible. It is also possible GM goes bankrupt a second time before the Bolt hits the streets.
    I don't think either will happen.

    As for Tesla, there have been individuals predicted Tesla...

    I'd agree if the subject was the Bolt, rather than Volt, or all the trips were under 50 miles.

    You could also show the family in Church, or a group picnic. When one of the kids asks "who smells...

    Preheating the car will help your range. It doesn't matter if the garage is heated or not.
    It simply takes more energy to move a vehicle in the cold.
    Doesn't matter if it is driven by gas, diesel,...

    Much better analogy!
    The only thing I would add is that no one else had built cell towers yet. Does apple wait, or do they build infrastructure themselves?
  13. Poor analogy. Most people make calls outside...

    Poor analogy.
    Most people make calls outside their home town far more often than people need to drive outside of their home town.
  14. You are drastically overstating the numbers...

    You are drastically overstating the numbers needed.
    First, every 100 miles should be sufficient, even in the winters in the north.
    You have no need for half as many quick chargers as gas station as...

    That's funny, I usually say the same about the other side of the coin. I bought a Volt, and then EVs that can use the existing electrical infrastructure.

    When I first bought a BEV, I had not one...

    Auto manufacturers don't HAVE to.
    They also don't HAVE to have commercials and they don't HAVE to offer any color other than black.

    The question is, does doing so produce a competitive advantage....
  17. Weather or not this is smart depends upon how...

    Weather or not this is smart depends upon how many Bolts GM plans to sell.

    GM got burned big time with the over optimistic sales projections.
    This time around, they are being more cautious and...

    +1!
    Not one person buys a new vehicle of any sort, based on price/TOC alone.
    If that were their only consideration they would buy used.

    Test drive it, see how you like it, and then decide.

    I was just updating another thread on this.
    It seems StreetInsider took Ruess' quote a bit out of context.

    Here is the full Ruess quote:

    I came across this today:
