- Bought the patents and shelved it or…
The Tesla Power Wall was announced recently. The same company that makes the Tesla automobile has invented a storage supply for solar power that eliminates the need for electricity delivered by wires. This is just one example of how will the leapfrogging of technology affect you in the coming years, both positive and negative.
This new invention looks like a piece of art you hang on the wall. Each one stores 10-kilowatt hours of power during the hours when the sun is out. You can purchase multiple units and daisy chain them together in order to increase your storage or to meet high capacities. At $3,500 each they are within the realm and reach of many consumers.
What will this leap in technology do to the electric power companies? The goal of products like this is to eliminate the need for fossil fuels. That technology that’s been in existence for decades and pollutes the air and causes problems in the environment.
Also, you must consider the enormous profits taken in by electric companies. They will not allow an invention like this to saturate the market without a huge backlash. Unless the power companies start offering something like this, only then will they say it’s a great idea. Many great ideas, like this one and inventions that have threatened power companies or oil companies in the past either, fell by the wayside when a major company bought the patents and shelved it or the inventor who wouldn’t sell out mysteriously died.
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?
ANSWER: That as wonderful as this new invention is people will see a backlash from their local power companies. Just like when the power companies charge extra for generating solar power.
QUESTION: Why is this information timely?
ANSWER: This information is timely because only now are customers realizing that the thousands of dollars they spent installing solar panels will become a burned when they’re getting charged for not using enough electricity.
QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: If you are intending to get off the grid completely these types of inventions, like the Tesla Power Wall, could make it possible.
COMMENTARY: Great nonpolluting, self-generating energy solutions like the Tesla Power Wall will make the old infrastructures like the power and gas companies obsolete. However, their powerful political influence will suppress these new technologies in their service areas. This is just one example of how the leapfrogging of technology in the next few years will outdate most of what you own today, making all that stuff obsolete. Or, you could get rid of everything you do not absolutely need and position yourself to enjoy these new advances as they take over.
