That's comparing apples and oranges. $3000 is the wholesale price of just the battery unit, $15,000 is retail for battery + solar panels + installation.
I agree that Australian prices are regularly absurd compared to overseas for many items even allowing for the weak Aussie dollar atm.

More nausea-inducing news about Gilead's strategy 6 years 9 months ago #10664

Hi Sonix,

"Adding a Powerwall to an existing solar installation would cost about $9500. A Powerwall and inverter without installation about $1000 to $1200 less. .......

Australians have been waiting for months to find out the cost of a Powerwall system. They can be bought wholesale for $US3000 and $US3500 in the US."


I have two solar installations on my house (2010 and 2015) and the second is bigger and cost less.

I was more reflecting on how many in business will change what the market will bear .....

Having said that, I hope this post does not go too far as it is a bit off track from Hep C.

yours

Gilead has a “very sophisticated strategy,” says Tahir Amin, co-founder of the nonprofit group Initiative for Medicines, Access and Knowledge. The company has excluded Chinese generic-makers that could have hastened delivery but would have cost Gilead profits, Amin says. And Gilead “could certainly do more” for middle-income countries not among the 101, he says, singling out China, Brazil and Ukraine, where the disease-burden is high.......

Gilead have spent over $100m on advertising Harvoni in the USA, even with its price tag of $1100 per pill.

More than 11,000 ads for Harvoni have aired on TV channels from FOX to Animal Planet to the Game Show Network to Syfy... Last year Gilead bought more than $30 million worth of ad space to tout Harvoni in magazines from People to Popular Mechanics to Better Homes and Gardens, as well as more than $5 million worth of ads online... Gilead has heavily pushed a TV spot called “I am Ready,” which features graying men and women declaring that they’re finally prepared to confront, and overcome, hepatitis C. As rain melts into sunshine, off-screen narrators declare, “I am ready to put hep C behind me” and “I am ready to be cured.”

Well, the ads are a business expense-straight off the top. Gilead needs to keep mining. I find them very offensive. Everywhere you look, magazines, tv, websites, bus benches. You would think it cured erectile dysfunction instead of saving lives. Who would ever have thought something like this would be allowed to happen?
I haven't kept up with any politics in the U.S. this election cycle. I watched the March 4th Republican debate yesterday with my 11th grade Civics students. It could have been a SNL skit.
Sickening.

There is another ad at the bottom of the page Targeted marketing at its best. They even have moving parts....
