Where would that be Shaker Heights, certainly not Maumee? My father had a fellow WWII crew member that took advantage of the GI bill while he did not. His digs in Shaker Heights by the 60's were a real eye opener for 6' x 8' bedroom me.

I'm sure GE would love to start building more nuclear power plants to charge up those supercapacitors.

Grommeteer: That's a great idea. No need to worry about battery replacement or batteries that do not last as long as expected etc. No worry about charging capacity or 'commercial charges' at home.
I don't see why this cannot be implemented. It solves the issue of disposal or recycling of used batteries . All will be done by the energy supplier. So the 'energy supplier' will be the equivalent of a petrol pump ! AND no emissions or waste disposal problems/commitments either.
Wouldn't life be more cushy ?

It wasn't Shaker Heights, I read about it in a power engineering magazine. Maybe it was Phoenix or California. We have enough problems with speedskating and power in the Heights. One year the high voltage line went down and we had to scratch 2 hours of an already overcrowded schedule (we had competitors from as far away as Australia). Last Fall, Superstorm Sandy took out power for 4 days and we had to scratch the event.

It was:
a Tesla owner in California who had to pay $10,000 to have his transformer upgraded,
