There is nearly five times more copper in the typical home than in a fully electric car.

Sure, but that wasn't the argument. The original fellow implied that multiple homes could be built with the copper from one electric car. But the exact inverse is true.

Pricing coming down? Not for the next five years, and that's if we're lucky.

Check out how much copper is used in electric cars. Wondering how many houses could be built with the amount of wire in one electric car?
We shall see, but check out the morgatge rate chart! I give it 6 months, at most. The cost of capital has a huge impact on prices

Quote from GlenC3825 :
It was humor but . How much wire is in an electric car?
Conventional gas-powered cars contain 18 to 49 lbs. of copper while a battery-powered EV contains 183 lbs and my house is over 5000 sq ft based on that there is just shy of 300 lbs of wire in my house. So 5x is crazy but around the same is probably accurate. Definitely not 5x in the house.
A fully electric car, on average, has about 130 lb of copper in it. The average American home has about 450 lb of copper. So five times is an exaggeration of course, but the average home contains far more copper than the average EV not the inverse

Quote from kirkhilles :
I probably SHOULD (finance wise) use 14/2, but I always wind up using 12/2 in case I need to go to 20 amps. Kinda silly, I know, but it's a lot easier to swap out receptacles and fuses compared to replacing wiring.
Does the current code even allow 14 for outlets? I haven't looked at that part of the book in ages as local jurisdiction last couple places I've lived has their own requirements spelled out for that sort of stuff. For example where I live currently, you have to use 12/2 on all 15/20a circuits. I'm onboard as far as outlets go unless it's like a single 15a or something, but 12 for lighting is unnecessary though. Nonetheless that's what they want here.

Here is a good reference for what gauge size requirements works for what.

https://inspectapedia.com/electri...e_Size.php

I generally use 12/2 for all outlets and use a 20amp circuit.

I only use 14/2 for lighting. I have been doing a lot of switch loop wiring for light is our mid century modern home.

Copper, lumber, etc... is already down 20%+ in the last month. Expected to drop more in the next year.

Palladium is down about 40% this year.

Love to see some 12/2 romex sim pull deals. I just had to use some 12/2 UF for a mini split I put in and it's such a PITA.

Kitchen receptacles, bathroom receptacles, garage receptacles - 12/2 (20A). Basically all other general purpose lighting and receptacles in a single family residence is 14/2 (15A).

I live in a 5280 sqft home in Upstate NY - 5/3.5, nothing fancy. How hard is that to believe someone lives in a home over 5000 sqft?
