yeah the other 63% should be down in no time, better bring on those diesel ran generators to keep those electric charging stations going!

In part the procurement awards are low bid winners opposed to Best Value. I give them no time for any corrective actions. They have had years to get it right for figuring out the best QA/QC and where the power must come from to power the recharging stations.
In my opinion, until they release the Zero Point and Near Zero Point patents little will change. Always follow the money.

That's because the gas of diesel fuel is just too high to run them!!

And how would solar panels and wind work? Not! Especially in the Prozac state of Washington for solar.

I am curious. How do you collect road taxes from electric vehicles, especially if they charge at home ?

There use to be a Gas Gusler Tax. Maybe they will put an EPA tax on them for battery disposal. Those batteries are dangerous

The wrar and tear driving on the road eventually cause the need for repairs…

And of course they have to cover that electrical charge machine utilizing more electricity which seems suspect in and of itself since we can’t even produce enough electricity to keep homes or businesses in cities up and running during severe winter storms or summers. Adding more demand of electricity has to be covered by the consumer right???

But the entire highway construction and maintenance universe in the US of A is based on liquid fuels taxes. That is a lot of money. The gallons of diesel and gasoline were calculated into miles driven and wear and tear on the road. Because diesel trucks cause more wear and tear, they pay more, a lot more. If memory serves me, during the 1970s and 80s the dramatic increases in fuel efficiency in cars, caused a noticeable shortfall in highway taxes.

Anyway, you can't shift the road tax burden away from diesel and gasoline to electric very easily. The tax would have to be added to the cost of the charging stations, which is fine, except for the people charging at home.

If the cost of charging at charging stations is much higher than charging at home, because of road taxes being added at the stations, more people will opt for avoiding those taxes by using their home electric.

I believe a similar problem must have occurred slightly before my time with diesel and No.2 fuel oil, because they added red dye to heating oil. I believe trucking outfits would burn No. 2 heating oil to avoid the road taxes put on diesel. The dye stops that.
