I'll believe Bolt when they start shipping to customers.
GM has a long history of not delivering what they

Going to be interesting to watch.
RyanFenton: the use of various techniques to discredit
aspects of science that suggested
companies had to change their behavior began in the 1950's.
For example, denying that smoking harmed health.
Denying that chemicals were poisoning birds.
For the details see "Merchants of Doubt"
by Oreskes and Conway.
"Natural Effects" is a complete cop-out, since all natural effects involve
changes that force climate change. And those forcing
effects are measureable (are the deniers pretending the
forcing issues unmeasured or unmeasurable?).
Mounting sllghtly off the roof, to the roof, gets decent solar generation
and shades the roof in high summer and... minilmizes the danger

rare 50MPH winds is... scary.
Currently using an inexpensive single-led backyard white light.
6 inch square solar panel. Small battery hidden
somewhere inside. Stays astonishingly bright all night illuminating
a rose tree (pointing a bit down, not up at the sky). Way more than
enough to read by. Something to free much of the world from
"Social security and disability checks are why the USPS matters today. They have guaranteed delivery" Maybe they do, but nothing else has
guaranteed delivery. Some 1st class mail never makes it here...every month.
I too have worked on projects with seemingly infinite bugs. I concluded that feeling just meant a big (BIG) chunk of code
(perhaps the entire project) should be discarded and rewritten from scratch. Not, of course, that the company would
ever agree to that...
