Almost all of the innovation in tech this past decade has been digital. It's almost like the internet killed our passion to create physical things and advance our state of being.
Our climate is changing, like it or not. But we can change that if we get our head on straight.
We only have one planet, and for hundreds of years, we’ve been exploiting its resources for the profit of few.
The plan is simple as I said…
Part 1 - There is a massive fusion reactor in the sky beaming down more energy than we could possibly need to power our homes, our cars, and even our smart little devices.
Part 2 - We capture that energy and store it locally. So when the sun goes away, and we can’t use it’s energy directly, we have enough to get us through to the next day.
This is true freedom. This is real independence.
Now you may think this is science fiction, but it’s not. You may believe that this is a far-off reality in the future, but it’s not.
You can take control of your energy independence today. So for those of you that can, I say you should. For if we don’t decide to be the change, we want to see in the world, who is going to decide what this world will look like in the future?

If you’re interested in submitting a video, simply create it, keep it to 90 seconds or less, send us a YouTube link along with your entry form, and wait to see if you’re one of our top winners.
// What is Tesla?
Tesla, Inc. (formerly named Tesla Motors) is an American automaker, energy storage company, and solar panel manufacturer based in Palo Alto, California. The company was initially founded in 2003 by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, although the company also considers Elon Musk, JB Straubel, and Ian Wright amongst its co-founders. The company specializes in electric cars, Lithium-ion battery energy storage, and, through their SolarCity subsidiary, residential solar panels.
Tesla first gained widespread attention following its production of the Tesla Roadster, the first electric sports car, in 2008. The company's second vehicle, the Model S, an electric luxury sedan, debuted in 2012 and is built at the Tesla Factory in California. In Q1 2013, Tesla released its stock profits for the first time from its NASDAQ ticker symbol. The Model S has been the world's best-selling plug-in electric car for two years in a row, 2015 and 2016. Its global sales achieved the 150,000 unit milestone in November 2016, four years and five months after its introduction. As of December 2016, the Model S ranks as the world's all-time second best-selling plug-in after the Nissan Leaf. The Model S was then followed by the Model X, a crossover SUV. Tesla's next vehicle is the Model 3, which was unveiled in March 2016. It is slated for release in 2017 with a price at US$35,000, before any government incentives.
As of December 2016, Tesla has sold over 186,000 electric cars worldwide since delivery of its first Tesla Roadster in 2008, making the carmaker the second largest global pure electric car manufacturer after the Renault-Nissan Alliance. For two years running, 2015 and 2016, Tesla ranked as the world's second best selling manufacturer of plug-in electric cars after BYD Auto. Musk, the CEO, has said that he envisions Tesla as a technology company and independent automaker, aimed at eventually offering electric cars at prices affordable to the average consumer.
