I saw that on TV the other night. I was getting annoyed at the beginning, but then they got it together on the EV front. I was also surprised that they mentioned Aquion based in Pittsburgh.

I still can't tell if Nova's Koch funding has any effect on the content or if it's just a red herring.

I did peruse Aquion's site and noted that they have a distributor network with one here in Arizona. The product looks quite small in comparison to lead acid batteries and appears cheaper than say a powerwall (but this needs to be confirmed). I sent an inquiry to the AZ distributor about a home configuration. We'll see.

Here's their distributor link: http://aquionenergy.com/distributors/find-distributor/

PG&E, it appears, has been involved with the i-Miev for some time (2008 article): http://media.mitsubishicars.com/release ... ee4b06fc7b
