Are you some kind of a retard who cannot read with basic understanding? I've stated clearly I run on coal (power plants transitioning to natural gas though) and nuke; all domestic, and SOON my own solar... What the F do you want???
One gallon of gas (wells to wheels) takes 7.5 kWh of energy to produce. It is indeed very close to zero emission when comparing to gas (aside from stiffing the Arab man) as I can cover 25-30 miles on that energy alone before the gallon reaches the gas station.
Be happy others use less gas, so you can gladly pay $3.50 instead of $4.50 for example. I'm not hurting anyone, just helping myself and my own country.
i didn't read any of your lame posts...just responded to your reply to my comment.
PLEASE don't get your PANTIES in a bunch.
anyway, your house is probably full of junk from China, so get off your (imported) high horse
Eh, the economics actually can work out. If you drive 30 miles to and from work, which is not unheard of where I'm at in SE Michigan, it would take about 10 years for the cost of gas to offset the cost of the car + charging. Assuming: Electric Focus, $0.08/kwh off peak charging compared to Gas Focus, 30 mpg with $4/gal gas and 15,000 miles a year of driving on both. That's not too unreasonable, especially when you consider all of the gas you didn't consume.
This charger won't even work on a Tesla... they had to go all Apple and make their own charger.
Don't forget to add in the price of the charger and installation to your calculation and remember that if you move within 10 years, you either have to get another charger (and installation) or have this charger removed and re-installed at your next house (assuming it still works).
I don't think electric is really as green as everyone thinks.
Where do you guys think electricity comes from?
The sun, wind, water, nuclear, gas, coal. But even with coal, you simply put technology behind and it will be much for efficient and less pollutant than any car (otherwise, why don't you just buy a smaller generator and generate your own electricity?). Also, as usage of electricity increase, economy of scale will make renewable source cheaper while increasing profitability.
Don't buy the Electric Vehicle charger from Schneider Electric. Buy from an American company.
Buy it from Eaton Corp, that's where I work. If you can afford an electric vehicle then you should be able to afford to buy one of these chargers made by an American company instead of one from Germany.
Without getting into the flame wars - these were built in North Carolina.
