Northeast of what? Assuming you mean Northeast US, why? There's not a whole ton of sunlight; you'd probably be better pumping the solar electricity into the grid during the day. Run this type of application where there's less cloud cover and that doesn't need electricity (like deserts) and ship ethanol to where it'd be most useful (aka. fuel production plants).

Comment Android and Samsung (Score 1) 158

I'm a fan of Android as a platform (I really don't like iOS or Apple to be blunt) but I dislike Samsung's "custom" Android and their "security" features that lock down phones and remove consumer choice (Knox and TrustZone). However, the Note brand is not at fault for this Note 7 problem and if they can find the cause or release a new model that doesn't have issues I don't see any reason that ditching a brand that has been one of their most popular phones would be warranted. There's better reasons to not buy Samsung hardware (the hardware isn't one as it's pretty nice in general) and I feel that they handled the recall issue quickly and as best they could.

Comment Re:Experience with Tesla (Score 1) 261

It's good to hear a detailed first-hand account of someone dealing with Tesla. They've always seemed to be a company who would go above and beyond to give top-notch customer service. It's good to see that's true. Once they get a model that's more in line with a normal sedan price (their current low-end models are still a bit pricey) I'd definitely (strongly) consider purchasing one.
