    Teslas have to charge overnight or off peak because the grid cannot handle them and your household at the same time. So that would probably mean 6-8 days to charge. A $100k vehicle you drive once a week.

    Your could mount your own solar to charge it, but in Canada that would then mean a vehicle you drove twice a week only in the summer.

    What a farce Reply With Quote

Everyone capable of though knows that the electric grid can't handle electric cars and nobody has the money to fund upgrades like this. Sure glad the subsidies to buy the things got cut when they did. Reply With Quote

    Sounds like Y2K all over again. Dire emergency which is really a non problem, scare the public daily coupled with frantic illogical uneconomical spending to avert it. Y2k had an end point, climate hysteria does not.

    Now that I see big banks behind the nonsense I suspect they see some sort of major slow down and this is a way to ramp up spending without cause while they line up for the returns. An entire overhaul of our grid to let a bogus technology onto it. Watch your taxes and utility bills skyrocket. Reply With Quote

    I agree, the stored energy to power a gasoline or diesel vehicle is transported through large diameter pipe then trucked to service stations in super-B tankers to be dispersed.

    You can only move so much energy into a neighborhood through the existing copper or aluminum wire infrastructure that was designed for household use only.

    I wouldn't even want to guess the cost of upgrading all the power grid in most of the cities in the world.

    Greta had her calculator out and has already phoned her copper broker because she doesn't want this opportunity stolen from her. Reply With Quote
    Jan 20, 2020 | 15:04 9 The likelihood of individuals owning electric cars will be remote. Most likely in large urban areas fleets of self driving cars will be charged at charging stations and be available like uber. If you live in the country you probably already have access to heavy power delivery. As long as there is enough electric generation at main nodes it should work. Big infrastructure program to build electric network of charging stations along major routes. Reply With Quote

    Big infrastructure program to charge at home it sounds like by that BC hydro person.... Reply With Quote
    Jan 20, 2020 | 16:26 11 Here's how a Tesla works in the real world. Bro-in-law who has more money than God bought one last fall. They live on Vancouver Island so he gets massive incentives from the BC government which he needs like he needs a 2nd asshole but that's beside the point. They've got a perfectly roadworthy BMW which would be my choice for a winter trip to San Francisco but virtue signalling prevails - they're taking the Tesla. The big problem for their trip planning is finding a route where they can actually make it from charging pedestal to charging pedestal. I have resisted the urge to ask what happens if they get stuck in a traffic jam or the road is blocked with snow. Reply With Quote

    How will people be able to virtue signal if that electric car isn't sitting in the drive way. Reply With Quote

    I read that. That has to be the stupidest article ever published and that's saying something for CBC. Like zero research and thought, just pump out another climate alarmist article as fast as you can.

    Half of your energy load is heating and AC, maybe more than that. if the grid cant charge a car, it cant get enough electrons to you to heat your house either. Where would the electricity come from? Natural gas generators? stalled wind mills? hydro dams that take 20 yrs to build. I mean WTF are people thinking. The losses to generate electricity, then wire it on the grid to your home and then put it through resistance type base board heaters would be enormous while gas is 94% efficient. Reply With Quote

    Jan 20, 2020 | 22:14 17 Its like they havent got a brain left in their ****ing heads
    But you would still think they would ask themselves where the power would come from ? Or how it would all get through the grid ? Reply With Quote
