As much as I dislike the electric car zealots, right now the overpopulated state running A/C all day is a much much bigger issue.

Fairly certain an electric car charger using more electricity than an air conditioner. Regardless. Itís 125 degrees and I fault no one for running their ac.

Figure out how many amps an ev draws per day when plugged in then compare it to the a/c draw of a medium home. Report back….

Don't fault anyone for cranking the cold air and I know EVs take more energy. There's relatively few of them in the grand scheme of things right now vs all the other wasteful usage was my point. No doubt EVs will be a real problem in a few years if they keep being forced on our overtaxed grid.

The only problem we have in the country as far as energy goes is politicians ****ing things up.
Windmills, solar panels both completely suck, not near enough nuclear and not building more coal and gas powered plants. All the fault of bags of crap we elect

I said this last year. As electric cars become more popular and people probably plug them in all night every night. Just a guess. No clue how much it actually draws.

You try and build either one and people Pitch a fit. ď Not in my back yardĒ but when their energy company starts sending them billed
For hundreds of dollars later this year they will wonder why.

Yup! Way more than a 3 ton A/C which may pull as much as 16A @ 240v
Similar to a large clothes dryer or electric oven running on high for several hours. And the thing about batteries is the older and more they are used the weaker they get and require more frequent charging. Think cell phone battery. How long does a charge last on your cell phone battery after its a couple years old?

Of course they are part of the problem but that doesn't fit the narrative.

I can get behind this. Rolling blackouts starting with newest residents of the state first, the longer you have been here the less likely you are to lose power!

Why would the news story target ďTeslaĒ, specifically? Why not say ALL electric vehicle requiring remote charging?

In reality, itís NOT the increased demand from EVís that is taxing the grid. Itís the ever expanding development both domestic and commercial AND WE HAVEN'T BUILT A SINGLE NEW POWER PLANT IN HOW MANY YEARS? Just about wherever you live in Texas, you are growing. Look at the electricity demand for 1 residential home and realize thousands are being completed every day throughout the state. Then factor in all the commercial development going in and itís mind boggling that we havenít already gone dark! We could easily stand to have 2 more Nuke plants and that is The Cleanest energy you can possibly have, period.
