Texas Freeze Raises Cost Of Charging A Tesla To $900 | ZeroHedge
Technology is going to have to evolve quickly to tackle this issue and more before the country commits to go solid Green. This wind turbine freeze issue with Arctic temps killing a majority of their electric grid is just one that illustrates that all is not golden with alternative energy sources.
We should not blindly oppose progress, but we do need to be opposed to blind progress.
Progressives and the current White House administration are pushing blindly forward with a Progressive agenda. That is dangerous for our country. And just one example of blind leadership. JMO.
why charge it? your ass aint going anywhere anyway
I know im going to get one. Maybe in 5+ years, or 10 when automated driving gets more refined. Its like when the automobile was first invented. You know a shit load of people died driving those things or getting run over by them.
What people don't realize is that it's more efficient to make the energy where you use the energy.
Half the electricity made is lost in transit to the homes and then again lost transferring from home to car battery.
You are just moving the "pollution" up the supply chain.
Also, almost everything we use is made from petroleum, so oil drilling will remain a thing.
More interesting will be, what do we do with the excess gasoline and diesel when processing petroleum into usable products?
100 years ago diesel was a byproduct of gas and kerosene production. Diesel would just be dumped or burned off.
I'm still waiting for the answer to this, "WHY" must fossil fuels be phased out?
I don't disagree that distributed generation (close to the source of use) is a good path forward for the future, but....
There is not a 50% loss of electricity due to transmission and distribution...not even close. It is more like 5% lost to transmission and distribution.
Texas just needs to update nuclear reactors.
These articles are cherry picked.. it's 1 specific wholesale energy supplier that cuts out capacity and storage infrastructure to pass in the savings to the customer.
It's like oil going negative last year.
What the heck is solid Green? Is that what color the rivers in China go after they mine out the lithium?
PHEVs are the way to go and this proves why.
I can charge mine for 44miles full EV or just drive as a 40mpg suv with 300hp and 14.5 gallon tank and never charge it.
Dont worry, the propagandists for the liberals will somehow blame this on Trump. Expect impeachment 3.0 because of this.
Unless you have barrels of gas, pumps at the gas station need electricity to be able to pump the gas out of the underground tank.
The ideal setup is to have solar panels to draw power from the sun, use that to charge your car. Gas requires supply lines to constantly replenish (talking about gas stations).
I hope they realized by now they are just wasting their time.
Because this is our WW2 and we will all die in 10 years if it doesn't happen.
You spend energy digging, compiling and shipping coal.
You spend energy converting coal into energy.
You spend energy moving electricity to house.
You spend energy moving house electricity to charger to charge a battery.
You spend energy building battery
You spend energy moving electric from battery to motor.
Motor spends energy to move tires and propel vehicle.
Many stations have back up generators to power the pumps.
Your solar panels aren't going to do shit in overcast snowy conditions and you'll be up on your roof dusting them off.
Idk, my neighbor seems to be doing well with his solar panels, says has so much power he offered to charge my car at no cost, daily. Lots of cloudy days too.
Do research on solar panels, my friend has solar panels and hasnt had to clean them in 3 years. They also dont have to pay electricity in some months. I also wouldnt live in a snowy place. This forum loves to shit on cali, but they live in a frozen thundra... okay. lol
pretty sure hes referring to removing the snow from them.
"Howd you end up with a broom up your ass and a broken neck?"
"I fell off the roof cleaning the snow off my solar panels"
luckily we live in a place theres no snow.
This is an entirely different argument, and would bet your 50% estimate is generous. I'd guess it's more in the 30% efficient (70% lost) or LESS range.
