More sun, less water. Works for me!
 
We've hit a MASSIVE milestone: SolarCity customers have generated one billion kilowatt-hours of solar electricity!!!

Our latest infographic sums up exactly what this means. Go to http://bit.ly/1sOqXVN to view the full infographic, and help us celebrate by sharing it with your friends. Happy Friday!

A little something I wrote
 
I have to admit, I've become a rather negative person when it comes to the future. There are so many ways in which we've screwed the pooch and things have been set into motion which we can't fix. The genie is out of the bottle, so to speak. The main area in which I believe this to be true is climate change.

Things were so bad a few years ago that I used to hang out on doomer and prepper boards and get pissed off at people who touted technological solutions to the world's problems. I thought they were just trying to blow sunshing up my ass. I thought that technology had already sent us over the fossil fuel/peak oil cliff and that no amount of innovation would save us. I bought into the doom and gloom.

And then, somehow, I managed to shake it off! At some point within the last week I ran across some information that caught my attention. First was a news article talking about how Texas just set a new record for electricity generated by wind turbines. Second was an article about the record levels of renewable energy being produced in Germany. (http://www.energymatters.com.au/index.php?main_page=news_article&article_id=4113). At some point I also watched a short documentary on YouTube from a couple of years ago about the Solar Revolution.

Suddenly, things looked much brighter! (no pun intended) Capacity, storage, cost - all of the major issues with renewable energy are being tackled, and the industry is making amazing progress. The installed base is exploding! I'm genuinely excited!
Texas set a new US record for wind power generation last week, and the surge in output demonstrates how quickly the US domestic energy landscape is shifting. Just a few years ago, word was that shale formations  in North America held enough natural gas reserves to last for decades. Today, shale drillers face a perfect

Very typical water heater in Mexico. Small. Shares a 30 liter natural gas canister with the stove. If you don't leave the pilot light on, the gas can last a long time! We're on Day 68 of this tank. Tanks costs $30 US

just picked this post randomly for comment, but yeah - G+ comments on my blog have, so far as I can tell, exactly ZERO comments. This particular post has 12 FB comments. As bad as Facebook is sometimes for engagement, it's not zero.
