I have been studying SolarCity Corp. Elon Musk wants to make lithium batteries to store power from his solar cells, and they have bonds to finance. The area over the Eisenhower Expressway could provide for park land and lots of solar panels to pay off the bonds. Plus lots of jobs to construct the “Sun Also Rises Park and Power Plant.” So, Elon Musk seems just the man to do it.

Maybe this is crazy. Maybe local vandals would make it impractical. 

Maybe not with electronic security.
