What about Solar City's accounting?
If you look at Solar City's business model :
They put solar plants on rooftops "for free",
meaning they borrowed large sums of money
to buy that equipment to install, as well as to hire
employees. For that borrowed money,
they pay an interest rate X,
and then they have customers
sign ppa agreements to pay Solar City periodic
payments of Y. As long as Y was greater than X,
they could hope to make a profit as principal
plus interest owing was paid down. BUT in a rising
rate environment, when X is higher than Y... and so,
this is not a "bail out" by Tesla, but for all we know,
profits from selling cars may go to buying solar cells
for consumers, and Tesla may be run at zero profit
for decades, as if run by communists. It helps
satanists greatly, that they have created a mythology
in pop culture to associate being good at math with
sodomites. So that godly males might not study
mathematics or finance and see the conspiracy unfold.
Zionists, eugenicists, communists, sodomites, and
satanists are one and the same. "Go back to sleep,
everything is fine" is the message that financial
journalists convey, while the freedoms and civil liberties
meant to protect the godly from the wicked are taken
away. Me so paranoid. Maybe, Tesla is not run by
communists, and will in fact, someday, pay dividends?
... that said, who buys cars with cash, and not on credit?
Both these businesses are built on borrowed money.
Paranoia... "all and all, it's just, another brick in the wall" - Pink Floyd.
Owner. Manager. Workers. You can only
eliminate owners WITHOUT creating a police
state IF there is NO usury. Usury is when
you look at another as if he, or she, was a
resource, and treat him, or her, as such.
ALL sheep, and no werewolf?
Who is pure of heart?
The people of Israel are to have no usury
amongst each other. And if they, historically,
could not do this, what business is it of theirs to
attempt to impose upon the rest of the world, a
Law they themselves could not keep? ..
Nevertheless, a usury free society is in this
world as Noah's Ark was in the First world - a
sign. Will you not seek the kingdom of God so
that you might find yourself therein?
Nobody had ever seen it rain, until that day when
the door to the Ark was closed, by God.
That said, imagine a society without owners..
... National Socialism - Nazism - guards were
used to police the workers who built the
bunkers. If they got tired or sick, they were
shot. How were those guards not slaves too?
No owners - only workers and managers...
A warning sign? :
.. It is sad when you see corporate management
no longer making decisions that are in the best
interests of the shareholders, the owners - as if
owners no longer exist...
In a society where usury exists, private
property rights essentially equate to liberty,
and privacy. But in a police state, the people
become property of the state, and more than
this, they even seek access to the treasures of your
mind, and to own that space too. Hence, the
war against privacy rights.
cause" - Law enforcement has always looked like
a fuzzy logic algorithm, (one man's terrorist, is
another man's freedom fighter) but when all checks and
balances disappear - you end up with legalized torture - it is
as it was in the middle ages, again, is it not?
The wars between Protestants and Catholics
in Feudal England - Could you say, "We are Wiccans"
or "Colour me undecided" and be left out of those
theological political wars? Did they not say to the
people, save for maybe the village idiot :
"Choose a side, or you
will be called an heretic and burned at the stake.
And be warned, if you choose the wrong side,
beheaded, albeit quickly - Now choose, Protestant
or Catholic? What be ye?" Umm, half and half?
.. OH well, I guess I tend to imagine the worst. Free
enterprise, is like a casino - do you believe in Musk's vision,
that it could become a self sustaining enterprise, or will it
like Trump's real estate development projects, need a steady
cash infusion from outside sources, "investors", to stay afloat?
A business manager, has three main constituents : customers, employees, and shareholders. He manages the company on behalf of the owners, the shareholders. So, irrespective of Musk's vision - he still must consider what is best for Tesla shareholders, else, you end up with communism, when the interests of owners is ignored. In a Communist system, there is no longer wealth accumulation through savings, but property rights are assigned by the State, and Managers control everything on the behalf of a single owner, the State. If you think about it, the Soviet System, and Hitler's "National Socialism" are almost identical. The Nazis, rather than advocating State Ownership, advocated State Control, by pointing a gun at the head of CEOs, and really everybody else. What is the point of owning, if you are no longer in control? Owners, shareholders, vote, in the West to replace a CEO if they are unhappy with management. But under National Socialism, everybody belongs to the same one political party, wherefore, the State decides, rather than shareholders if a manager needs to be replaced.... That said, it does not make much sense that Tesla would do this - since as a car manufacturer, why should he care whether the homeowner powers his car with electricity from the sun, or from electricity supplied by the local utility company? But it matters to Tesla, as a manufacturer of batteries, maybe. Vision is great, as long as there is economic justification. And sometimes the Government decides that this way is better than that - and so gets involved in the economy to "move things along" - like how the National Railways were built. Transparency is important, so that companies do not become branches of the Federal Government, which is probably what Bernie Sanders would like to see. .... Eugenicists, they who believe in a hereditary ruling class, are OK with communism, or national socialism, or whatever else works for them.... Political Economy - which products get produced, and for whom .... I think too many take for granted the freedoms that have been won for them by generations past.
Well, if the merger had not gone through, would the owners of that 35k tesla car been happy having to pay to use the supercharger network? That network is only free if you buy the 100k model. Moreover, without the merger, maybe others would have invested in, built, and ended up owning electric (solar powered) stations?
Elon Musk unveiled
Elon Musk unveiled prototypes of Tesla's Solar Roof tiles In October 2016. They came in four styles that looked just like normal roofing material but were essentially miniaturized versions of traditional solar panels.
The announcement helped Tesla justify its $2.6 billion acquisition of SolarCity one month later and represented Musk's vision for what the businesses could do together.
It's been almost two years since then. So where are the tiles?
"We now have several hundred homes with the Solar Roof on them, and that's going well. It takes a while to just confirm that the Solar Roof is going to last for 30 years and all the details work out," Musk said on Tesla's Q2 earnings call in August.» Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC

What Happened To Tesla's Solar Roof Tiles? | CNBC
Good for 30yrs?
Technology rising up like rocket
$100,000. for a new roof? They claim 30-year lifespan, maybe. Two weeks to instal? You could put on an asphalt shingle roof for $5000. done in 1 day. Lifespan 25 years. If you really wanted to go solar put in solar panels.If a panel is a defective fairly easy replacement. How much would it cost if the Tesla panels were defective, what is the warranty? Frankly, if you wanted the house to be more energy efficient then use more simple proven technology. Better insulation, new weather stripping, new energy-saving windows, led lights, high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment. Installing all this would make the house more saleable if you had to move. Installing a Tesla roof would actually make the house less saleable as people would be leary of the new unproven technology. As the house gets older, people would want to discount the price as it would need a new $100,000. roof. Not really an option for most people.
Love Elon, but solar energy is a waste of time and money.
China sued Elon for patent infringement.
