    Recently I was extremely low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this.. With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – lqle

    Zachary,
    Have you seen Mr. Kamooneh’s article on InsideEVs? He cites your article at Cleantechnica as one of the two examples of bad journalism coming from the EV community. I did read his article and then yours. Do read the comments and his responses–he is nothing like you and police say. It’s hard to see how someone like that could be going around disrupting school children. It just doesn’t make sense. Did you not think that the police statements need to be backed up before you reported them as fact?

    Here is the link: http://insideevs.com/nissan-leaf-owner-arrested-for-electricity-tells-his-side-of-the-story-and-where-we-go-from-here-as-a-community/

      Thanks for the note. 1- i’m a bit shocked that the police/school would say that he had previously been told to stay off of the school property if that wasn’t the case. that doesn’t make sense. 2- i wrote my piece for the many EV drivers who read our site, trying to offer good lessons for behavior and consideration that would keep them out of unnecessary trouble. that was the intent of my 3 points in that piece. obviously, everyone realizes that being jailed for 4 cents of electricity is completely absurd. that’s why i didn’t cover the story in the first place — it had already been everywhere for that obvious, sensational absurdity.

      Again, thanks for the note. Checking out the comments now.

    Dear Zachary,

    I am very concerned about recent activities at CleanTechnica regarding the sites direction allowing unmitigated hit pieces against small wind companies being written by a particular author of late. I don’t see this as being a productive or sustainable direction for CT to take in this regard referring to articles such as http://cleantechnica.com/2014/03/03/airborne-wind-energy-platypuses-instead-cheetahs/ .

    Zach, I just saw your talk in the Ukraine and I was struck by the fact that you were unaware that Nikola Tesla was from that region, actually Serbia/Croatia, but very close.

    • http://zacharyshahan.com/ Zachary Shahan

      My understanding was that they were saying he was from Ukraine (or had lived there), which didn’t ring a bell.

      Hoping to get down to his actual birthplace.

  • yoda67

    Tesla was a rival of Edison, but Tesla was much more knowledgeable than Edison and apparently not concerned with money or fame.

    Hey Zachary,

    I have been reading your site off and on since 2008 and have appreciated your thoughtful scientific presentation of facts surrounding clean technology. I recently saw a video of a guy named Randy Powell giving a Ted talk about zero point energy. I have heard of torus, free energy, also known as quantum energy before but I’ve never heard any one explain it like him. What he was saying was incredible. Please research randy Powells work and talk about it. There are a lot of people talking about zero point energy online who confuse it with spiritual interpretations. Randy Powell sounded like he knew what he was talking about. He wants to release his work and blueprints for working quantum energy devises to the public domain. If you just watch the Ted talk with randy Powell you’ll understand why I’m so excited.

      Thanks. Saving this to do that.

    Hi Zachary, We are building disaster safe homes for the islands of the South Pacific from our base in New Zealand. A great need is solar power as they burn diesel to make electricity. I have no experience in this field and wondered if you could suggest a chinese source for the components required? Any other wisdom would be appreciated. Thanks

    • http://zacharyshahan.com/ Zachary Shahan

      I’d say Yingli Green Energy or Trina Solar.

    Hi Zach,

    I’m working on a graduate school project about solar demographics and customer barriers. I was wondering if I can email you a few questions that your insight would greatly help with.

  • Kevin D

    Hi Zach, I read your article on Top 10 of the Best Rated Solar Energy Companies. I don’t see NRG Energy on the list, where would they fall? I am looking for a company for residential solar energy in the North East US. Can you provide a reccomendation?

    • http://zacharyshahan.com/ Zachary Shahan

      Hmm, I don’t recall that article, but I think NRG Energy is quite high on the list now. Not really sure, though.

  • Tint Man

    Hello Zach, Great information. We are interested in knowing more about your services to write some white pages for our window film products (Solar Control Window Film / Car Tint).

  • Glen Alexander

    Zachary: This is a request for the free use of a
    graphic image. I work at a research an education facility
    . We have a large solar panel on our barn and we are
    developing a sign to educate visitors and encourage them to do something
    similar on their house. We are looking for an image that shows PV panels on the
    roof collecting solar energy, providing electricity to appliances in the house,
    and providing excess power to the grid. Do you know where I can get something
    like that?

  • Maloo

    Hello Zachary, i am currently researching EV’s for my daughter and have quite a few questions about real world use and i am wondering if you can point me to an appropriate site/discussion board where i can ask questions and discuss ideas. thank you for your time.

  • Brett

    Zach,

    If Cleantechnica is an open place to learn and discuss, why are dissenting posts deleted? Why are a few posters like Bob Wallace and James allowed to harass everyone who disagrees with them? Do you understand how much damage to the credibility it is when alternative views are deleted or personally attacked? Kind of sad. Makes the site look like more of an agenda platform than information for the masses.

    • Hank1946

      It would be most likely that the facts don’t hold water! Or come from a source that is not regarded as accurate! Also the use of language that is not allowed. Maybe just coming from people known to support oil or coal at all costs usually at the cost of the truth. As for a platform than information for the masses. Usually they are not well informed and make decisions without a complete picture?

  • Hank1946

    I was wondering if you were thinking about doing a article on the cost of replacement batteries? I was looking at a Fiat 500e it is a lemon law resale with full warranty. Because of that I started asking about the replacement cost of the drive battery. First Walter’s Fiat quoted ”

    Dear Henry,

    The battery for the Fiat 500E installed is $37,000 without installation it is $32750. Your better off buying another whole car than replacing the battery.

    Best regards,

    This one was by phone from South Country European $28,000 Parts sales.
    Might be a good thing for people to know which EV’s have the best cost for batteries. Seems like the Fiat is a throw away car! If you want respond to my E-MAIL henrypawlowicz@aol.com
