Someone's going to get a big electricity bill if we have to rely on "plugging" into the ground!

I can really see the governments going for free energy on the roads when they could charge for such privilege, not to mention the"ease" of storing all of this solar energy.

How feasible are the actual principles behind this then? I mean, assuming infinite resources and money, would this work on a small scale at least? I understand wireless power distribution as we know it today, but would this work at all?

Yeah I really am quite surprised that all these crowd funding sites don't care that they're being used to scam millions out of people, surely they must be somewhat responsible for stopping it?

Mentioning poor Tesla right away is a red flag that this is total bullshit. IMO it is matter of honor for those free/bullshit energy scammers to not give him a rest in the afterworld.

Well they make about 10% profit from all the raised funds, the better the scam the more money they get.

They will just do what they did for Ethernet over power - either ignore it or say that it can make as much noise as it wants

Today's (31st August) Sunday Telegraph Business Reporter section had an article on this with pictures so it appears to be still running. I didn't bother to read it but such coverage gives the 'project' some credibility unfortunately.

I did not know that Tesla departed by satellite, but according to how their blurb reads that is what he did. :-DD

You are reading it wrong and out of context, not sure why they felt they had to add the whole inventor departure emphasis in that  phrase but because on how ambiguous English can be it can be miss interpreted :)
