Who hasn’t been shocked by a recent electricity or gas bill? And who isn’t infuriated that power prices have risen so sharply? In a country as abundant with resources as ours it defies logic that there are now some Australians who can’t even pay for the electricity or gas to cook a simple meal. While federal – and state – politicians scramble to act, Elon Musk, the American billionaire with the brilliant mind, says he wants to help. In an exclusive interview with Liz Hayes, Musk says Australia’s energy emergency is easily fixable, and his construction of the world’s largest lithium ion battery at Jamestown in South Australia is proof.

Alternative energy sources are in our best survival self-interest. Finite energy sources no longer (see the last 40 years) make economic, climate sense. Financing a new coal power plant is so much more expensive and environmentally unsound than wind, solar power plant coupled with a storage solution (see lithium-Ion battery). Tesla has a big battery solution (watch the South Australian video below for evidence). Wind and Solar on their own are great when the wind and sun are cooperating. That’s where a storage solution comes in to capture the kilowatt energy when the sun and wind are prime so that distribution may occur when energy costs/use are at their highest (see dinner time and summer heat).  Notice that the solutions come from entrepreneurs like Elon Musk. Don’t you think we need leaders like Andrew Yang to solve our climate crisis with real-world energy solutions? Guess who recently endorsed Andrew Yang?  Yes, Elon Musk.

Tesla's big Battery saves Australia big bucks in the first year

Tesla Auto has been my small Youtube obsession for the last 6 months. Must concede, I am massively impressed with the Model 3 performance EV, for energy saving, styling, and technical reasons. My next car must be a Model 3 performance, black with a white Vegan pleather interior. Right now the distance between charges is around 305 miles within speed limit driving (et al). This works for me, with the growing number of Tesla supercharger stations throughout the nation. (see wishful thinking).  We must dream, right?
