That is great news, we are starting to see the country getting serious about energy storage, it's going to be vital as we move into the 21st century and clean energy.

I like the way these projects seem to nearly always go hand in hand with EV charging too, as more people start to open their eyes and switch to electric cars we are going to need more charging points.

All good  :) no, better than that, all brilliant plans  ;D  

Now we just have to hope that South Norfolk Council do the right thing and give it the big  :thumbsup:

It's good that they would use existing land too and not some nice nature reserve :)

Well yeah I can't argue with that but it's only a battery, solar farms need far more space.
These batteries are vital but we must also generate clean energy to store in them.

Yesh, I didn't think that through really.  :LOL:

Still, it might save a few hedgehogs  ;D

I don't like SUV's, far too big and bulky for our roads here in the UK, however if people are going to buy them then they might aswell get electric versions right ?

Here are the SUV's coming to a showroom near you soon  :)

  SUV's and the big trucks are popular around here, maybe because people are tired of having there driveways blocked by the plows pushing snow across their driveways, they can just drive through it instead of having to shovel it out again. These are the gas vehicles.

  It seems Elon Musk is in trouble for tweets about going private,  regulators have accused him with securities fraud.  He was asked to pay a fine which he refused.
"The US financial regulator says Mr Musk's claims that he had secured funding to take the electric carmaker private were "false and misleading".
It is seeking to bar Mr Musk from acting as an officer or director of a publicly traded company.
Mr Musk called the action "unjustified" saying he acted in the "best interests of truth, transparency and investors" "
