Texas energy crisis won’t happen again: Tesla officially became the state’s electricity supplier

Published

Tesla has officially become an officially certified electricity supplier in Texas. Earlier in August, Tesla Energy formally filed with the Texas Public Utilities Commission to sell electricity in the state. Now a Utilities Commission document has officially confirmed that Tesla can supply electricity to residents of the state.

Tesla Energy Ventures has demonstrated: (a) the ability to comply with all applicable Electricity Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) policies, protocols, guidelines, procedures and regulations; (b) the company is capable of meeting all applicable ERCOT registration and certification requirements; (c) it will meet all the standards of the renewable energy portfolio; (d) its directors or permanent management staff have at least 15 years of cumulative experience in the competitive retail trade of electricity or gas; (e) it has at least one principal or permanent employee with five years of experience in managing energy risks; (f) it has the appropriate staff and staff training to meet all service level commitments; (g) it has the capacity and effective procedures to be the primary point of contact for retail electricity consumers; and (h) it has a customer service plan that complies with the CSF’s Anti-Discrimination and Protection Rules.

Tesla is an energy supplier in several regions, primarily in South Australia. The company also has an operating Virtual Power Plant in California, which is currently in beta testing. Because the company uses solar power and energy storage systems, Tesla Energy users are more likely to avoid power outages. Recall that at the beginning of this year, Texas residents faced massive power outages due to bad weather. This event went down in history as the Texas Energy Crisis.

CEO Elon Musk previously suggested that Tesla’s energy business would grow to the same size as its automotive business, and even more.

Order a new Hummer EV and wait 17 years. SUV production volumes are catastrophically low

Order a new Hummer EV and wait 17 years SUV

The lineup for the electric Hummer EV has already stretched for more than 17 years at current production rates.

Order a new Hummer EV and wait 17 years.  SUV production volumes are catastrophically low

General Motors is facing the same problem that Tesla long ago faced, and now Ford and Rivian are facing. The company offered the market a car that interested consumers a lot, they began to pre-order, but GM simply cannot produce enough cars. In this case, of course, due to the continuing shortage of components.

So far, about 77,500 people have pre-ordered the Hummer EV. This is quite a lot, but much less than the Tesla Model 3 at one time. However, Tesla had no problems with components and was actively increasing production. But General Motors now produces only 12 cars a day!

This is catastrophically small. Even Rivian has already reached the volume of about 30-40 cars a day, and Ford produces about 150 F-150 Lightings pickups.

The manufacturer says that it intends to significantly increase production volumes at the end of this year, but there is no exact data on this. And even with 12 cars a day, even a five-fold increase in production will be completely insufficient.

Geely wiped Teslas nose The Chinese introduced the Geometry E

Elon Musk has long announced a cheap Tesla electric car, but it’s still not there, and all the other manufacturer’s electric cars, on the contrary, are getting more expensive. In great contrast to this, the official announcement of the Geely Geometry E electric crossover looks like, which, at a price of $ 15,000 (or even a little less), provides a range of 400 km.

Unlike cheap Tesla, which is only in the plans, Geometry E can already be ordered in China. The base version, called the Cute Tiger, with a 33.5 kWh traction battery that provides a range of 320 km, is priced at $12,950. The Linglong Tiger and Thunder Tiger variants with a 39.4 kWh traction battery and a range of 401 km are priced at $14,600 and $15,500, respectively.

The car supports fast charging technology – from 0 to 80% in just half an hour. The crossover is driven by a single electric motor TZ160XS601 with a capacity of 81.5 hp. – not very much, but enough to reach a maximum speed of 121 km / h.

Geometry E dimensions – 4004 x 1765 x 1550 mm. For such a compact car, the size of the wheelbase is decent – 2485 mm.

Analysts predicted that the second quarter of this year would interrupt a two-year history of constant growth in the production and shipments of Tesla electric vehicles, and everything happened. In the second quarter of this year, Elon Musk’s company produced 258,580 cars and delivered 254,695 to the market.

Even Tesla has not escaped problems with the production of cars.  For two years, Elon Musk's company set records until the second quarter of 2022 came.

Compared to the same quarter last year, there is an increase in deliveries by more than 50,000 vehicles, but the figures for the second quarter are worse than those for the first: in the first three months of this year, the company produced 305,407 cars, and shipped 310,048 cars to customers.

Even Tesla has not escaped problems with the production of cars.  For two years, Elon Musk's company set records until the second quarter of 2022 came.

Perhaps the company could have performed as well in the second quarter as the first, if not for the suspension of production at the plant in Shanghai. “Current problems in the supply chain and plant shutdowns beyond our control,” the company pointed out in a comment accompanying the supply and sales report. Interestingly, June 2022, according to official data, turned out to be the month of the highest production of Tesla cars in history. Perhaps this is a consequence of Elon Musk’s demand for company employees to roll up their sleeves and return to the offices for fruitful work.
