VW and Sanyo announced today that they would co-develop automotive Li-ion cells for VW and Audi automobiles (expected time of delivery 2012). Sanyo is already supplying NMH cells to Honda and Ford for their hybrid vehicles.

Also, Nissan and NEC announced yesterday that their joint venture company Automotive Energy Supply Co. decided to invest additional
200 million dollars to build a new Li-ion cell factory for Nissan’s hybrid automobiles. They expect to start delivery of the cells in 2009.

I actually think you will see a decrease in price.
The more that can be produced the lower price should come.

What I think is a realistic increase would be the electric companies suddenly charging significantly more for night time rates ( popular charge times ) claiming they need to invest in a new blah blah to keep up with the HUGE impossible demand.:rolleyes:

We'll be paying SOMEONE one way or another - until I can capture and store my OWN electricity efficiently via solar ;)

Ghost,

What do you feel the price of solar needs to be for your circumstances for it to make sense for you?

That is an astute extrapolation of current events. I predict that not only will the utilities charge a little more for investment, but local, state and federal governments will begin taxing electricity consumption more, as petroleum consumption becomes less. The governments are justified, because they build / maintain the roads, bridges, tunnels, traffic lights, etc., which is currently funded by gasoline taxes.
