I read the article and sort of could not quite grasp the technology. However, after watching the video, I had a much better grasp of this technology. This is good technology.

I wonder if it is affordable for the common people in the United States. With our new smart meters, someday, in the very near future, out local, state and federal governments can control or ration our electrical energy. If we fall into a state of civil unrest, the government will have power to shutdown entire communities that might be fighting or rioting against the government. These smart meter installations throughout our nation—I was led to believe—began during the Obama administration and are very close to done.

I sincerely would not mind having my own portable solar panels for emergencies

the israelis seem bent on providing serious aid to 3rd world countries. what's even stranger is that they don't seem bent on profiteering.

Keep this good use of technology instead of bringing bad things to all the living lives

Fabulous! I think many in developed countries could use this too, with the high costs of electricity.

Oh, yeah! God bless Israel! I saw an article about this elsewhere. Israel is so wealthy with technological knowledge and creations. They need to be given the credit, attention and any resources needed! Amazing things are always coming out of Israel. If only we could only follow their lead in solar technology in their architecture, etc. Thanks for this, David, and all others.
