Tesla’s move will save homeowners between $ 3,000 and $ 5,000
Tesla has confirmed to Reuters that it’s now slashing installation costs on its home solar systems after sales of the systems have trailed off.
A company executive told the news agency that any residential customer getting a quote after November 15, 2018 will realize an average savings of between $ 3,000 and $ 5,000 on material and installations costs versus prior quotes.
Tesla has struggled with its solar installation business since its 2016 acquisition of Solar City, which was then the largest residential solar installer in the country.
A year later, Tesla began accepting orders for its solar roofing shingles, which look like this:
But despite a lot of buzz around the shingles and Tesla’s residential solar initiative, it didn’t get off the ground in quite the way the company had hoped.
Installations have fallen from 200 megawatts (MW) a quarter in early 2016 when Solar City was at its peak to less than half of that — just 93 MW — in the third quarter 2018, according to Reuters.
Adding to the woes is the fact that Tesla tinkered extensively with Solar City’s successful sales model, which relied heavily on door-to-door canvassing in solar-friendly states, among other proven approaches.
Meanwhile, Tesla also terminated a retail relationship with Home Depot in 2017. That means the all-electric automaker could no longer demo its whole house solar approach at some 800 stores across the country.
Tesla executives now hope a lower price on its solar systems will bring in more customers.
Under the administration's proposal, the Department of Health and Human Services would permit Medicare to create a new payment model that would bring drug prices in line with what other nations pay. Health and Science
New Shark Deterrent Technology: “Clever Buoy™ is an autonomous marine monitoring system developed by the Australian company, Smart Marine Systems (SMS). The system is an ocean monitoring platform that specializes in detecting large marine life using state of the art sonar and identification software systems to relay critical information to authorities responsible for beach safety.” www.sharkmitigation.com
What It Does: Alerts are immediately sent to lifeguards if a shark is detected via the optus network. Marine life is detected by a groundbreaking sonar system that SMS created. Once the shark is detected by the clever buoy, a real-time message is sent.
A More In-Depth Understanding: “The monitoring system is designed to be deployed beyond the surf zone and utilizes multibeam sonar transducers that are mounted on the ocean floor coupled with newly developed detection software to scan for marine life. The system creates a “virtual net” at the deployment locations and once an object is detected in the area, the software interrogates the target’s swimming pattern to determine the type of object and potential species.
If the target is determined to exhibit shark like movement patterns, information is transmitted to lifeguards within seconds notifying them of the target and the location via a real-time mobile application with automated notifications and warning information.” www.sharkmitigation.com
The Goal: This process is a noninvasive alternative to current shark defense methods worldwide. What makes this method different is its efficiency, it is economical and lastly humane.
Clever Buoys goal by installing this technology into our oceans is to reduce the risk of beachgoers in the water and ultimately protect humans and marine life cohesively.
Permanent Solution? “The stability and robustness of the current Clever Buoy™ platform has been verified to sustainably operate in open ocean conditions 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, autonomously monitoring marine life and alerting the presence of large animals which could be a threat to beach users.” www.sharkmitigation.com
Though last Wednesday’s alert was only a test, the SNL sketch portrayed some of the worst fears about the way that President Trump could use the system, and offered some alternative alerts that could come to American phones.
“Failing New York Times says I cheated on taxes. Duh! It’s called being smart,” read one alert in the sketch.
The sketch played on many Americans’ skepticism that President Trump will only use the alert system in emergency situations, despite the fact that there is a law forbidding it.
“Warning: White men are under attack,” read one fake alert.
