4:37 Minutes Away from Total Collapse…

Do you remember Feb. 1, 2021?

“That’s the day a freak cold storm gripped the state,” says our science and technology maven Ray Blanco, “plunging the Lone Star state into negative twenty-degree weather.” And quite literally freezing Texas’ electric power grid for weeks.

In fact, according to The Wall Street Journal, by mid-February the grid was within 5 minutes -- 4:37 minutes, to be exact -- of a complete and total collapse. “I’m talking about a blackout of historic proportions that would’ve sent Texas back to the stone age,” says Ray.

“Thankfully, the Texas power crisis eventually passed,” he continues, “but not without revealing a painfully obvious weakness in Texas’ energy infrastructure.”

Which might have everything to do with a California-based billionaire’s relocation to Texas in December 2020. “My research reveals Elon Musk’s move to Texas gives him a strategic foothold for his next major disruption: the energy industry,” says Ray.

“Experts call Texas the ‘the epicenter of the U.S. energy economy.’ It produces more power than any other state

“That’s why not long after the Texas blackout, Musk stepped in with Tesla Inc. and registered a secret project” -- and Tesla subsidiary -- “under the name ‘Gambit Energy Storage LLC.’”

It’s worth mentioning this project has been kept under close wraps; when asked about it, Tesla execs have offered no comment…

“So, 40 miles outside of Houston, Texas in a small town called Angleton,” says Ray, “Tesla is quietly installing a colossal battery into the Texas power grid.

“Make no mistake, this is not your everyday lithium-ion battery. These batteries are big. REAL big…

“Until recently, energy storage batteries were too costly for widespread commercial adoption,” Ray says.

“But because of recent technological improvements made to the lithium-ion battery during the electric vehicle manufacturing rush, the cost to produce the… battery pack has dropped like a rock.

“And these giant batteries enable us to store energy from cheap, renewable sources of power, like solar and wind,” says Ray.

“These big storage batteries turn solar and wind power from an inconsistent source of electricity into a 24-hour power plant.”

Which is why Forbes says: “Energy storage is referred to as the ‘holy grail’ of renewable energy as it gives solar and wind the ability to generate electricity 24/7.

“Big batteries are producing some of the cheapest energy in the world,” says Ray. “And that’s great news for you.

“This disruptive energy storage boom is just getting started,” Ray says. “But big batteries are about to blast off into a state of ‘hypergrowth.’”

And per Ray’s research: “There’s one little-known tech company that’s perfectly positioned to ride this once-in-a-life-time megatrend.” A company that’s now just 1/600 the size of Tesla…

“Which explains why Wall Street insiders like Vanguard, Blackrock and T. Rowe Price have already parked billions of dollars in this underreported stock.”
