Doing away with unnecessary friction costs and dramatically improving energy efficiency is a huge part of reducing expenditures and increasing savings again in the economy.

“If you wanted to power the entire U.S. with solar panels, it would take a fairly small corner of Nevada or Texas or Utah; you only need about 100 miles by 100 miles of solar panels to power the entire United States,” Musk said. “The batteries you need to store the energy, to make sure you have 24/7 power, is 1 mile by 1 mile. One square-mile. That’s it.”

    I will like to see what your write after Elon Musk fails. He is no more than a carnival barker and a government welfare queen. If it was feasible and made financial sense it would already be done.
