okay.. so brokers are a lot like lawyers and politicians... yeah.. once in a while they all serve purpose... get your energy direct.. from the sun!! More rain coming your way... looks like we'll get a good dose on saturday...

10-4 on that direct market .. look what solar city wants to do with those bonds.. that's direct market.. no broker.. no leech commission salesperson.. right to the customer... I believe all tesla's sales advisers are hourly employees... they make no effort to push the sale of the car at all.. best joe

Some warped folks are getting militant towards hybrids http://www.philly.com/philly/classifieds/cars/Prius_pushback_Hybrid_inspires_some_hatred.html#pAFUOzesLgP1BgKp.99

67 so far past two days... looks like another winner today.. you feel that good about solar city??would you go 10 large? or juts buy 1 or 2?? I saw them hawking solar @ the depot the other day.. offering three pkgs here... still dreaming of tesla's.... their stock is like $150-200 a share.... put the shsades on... joe cool

Jim.. it looks like the 3 year is the best break between length and rate... about twice the rate of current bank cd's.. they plan on using the panel leasing income to pay these notes, but the notes are NOT guaranteed by that income stream... just solarcity's ability or interest in paying them... how about annuities? Insurance company's are always barking about annuity returns... have any dealings with those?? I want to check into green initiative funds.. they would buy solar city bonds perhaps as a portfolio , and the risk would be a lot less.... of course.. you know solar city.. how they operate.. what type of issues they run into and how they approach them... the old saying is.. "invest in what you know".. yup .. dreary drippy clouds... but solar guys and gals will always find something to smile about!! joe

yes.. our clouds parted and we got a surprise.. later today not looking so good... waiting on showers now... (not solar power showers!!) I always thought a good mutual fund was the way to go.. average out the individual stock's fluctuations / highs and lows.. there are a few listed in the sierra magazine.. green stock funds that stick to sustainable ventures..

by Joeski1  Oct 22, 2014

Let me know what you conclude.. but I think the safest bet here is... more solar panels!! Can't go wrong.

Jim... could it be that solarcity has made a profit in only one year... their fixed expenses: In 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 and the six months ended June 30, 2014, fixed charges exceeded earnings by approximately $26.2 million, $38.6 million, $99.3 million, $80.6 million and $71.5 million, respectively.. making 2011 the only year so far they turned a profit?/ Could that be ? Must be using subsidies to keep going... joe
