This guy shows the math of an electric SUV. Listen to the figures he shows and what it takes to make even an electric SUV let alone a Semi.


I guess the author has never heard of solar panels.


And those solar panels are actually supplying the grid in times of low usage and surplus.

But heck, to it's haters and detractors, California is facing an apocalypse and the whole world doesn't know and keeps on using it as a benchmark for greening, pollution abatement and energy independence.

Yes record heat and electric demand with ZERO rolling blackouts ordered by the CAISO.
Of course equipment failures and maintenance happens every single day. (24/7/365)

Looks like CA will be ready for both SEMI and transition to 100% EV auto sales on schedule.
Breathing cleaner air will be a wonderful transition.


But in some people's world, a single incident of a blackout (my sister lives in the Bay Area and she told me, what black out) is some scary **** "rolling blackout" that would make EV unfeasible.

California averts widespread rolling bla........ts as energy demands ease amid heat wave


I did not see this in how California averted blackouts.

Say what?

You are implying that CA did not avert the rolling black outs, then posted an article which cited how CA averted the black outs with generators. Which is which?

And by-the-way, we are talking of persistent black outs aka rolling black outs.

Here, to the EV haters and prognicators of doom for CA's mandate to adapt a no-tail pipe regs.

EVs aren't straining the electric grid — and they just might save it

To the California haters who keeps on hammering that the state because of it's liberalism is ungovernable, in complete anarchy and chaos;

Californians paid heed to text to save energy, averting blackouts

Stabilize California’s Grid: The extra capacity your Powerwall provides could help avoid or reduce blackouts in a severe emergency. This way, Powerwall can keep the lights on for both you and your community.
Clean the Grid: Tesla will dispatch your Powerwall when the grid is in critical need of additional power. That is when the least efficient generators would typically come online.
Unite as a Tesla Community: Team up with other Powerwall owners who are accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy and help form the largest distributed battery in the world – potentially over 50,000 Powerwalls. As part of the VPP, your Powerwall will have an outsized positive impact on the grid over traditional demand response programs.
Maintain Your Energy Security: Powerwall will discharge during VPP events but won’t discharge below your Backup Reserve. Adjust your Backup Reserve to control your contribution while maintaining backup energy for outages.
Earn Compensation: Through the ELRP pilot, you will receive $2 for every additional kWh your Powerwall provides during an event. You don’t have to change your energy usage behavior to participate.

Compared to TX, I believe the CA administration of the grid has gone quite well. I expect this superior management to continue as we transition away from burning fuel to have electricity. EVs will be the easy part as charging is flexible.

CA is ready for the SEMI.

Not even close, 200 Texans died of deep freeze with massive black out because their leaders can't make the electric companies harden their grids and plants with winterization.[emoticon]

And the sad part, these same leaders even got the nerve to lie to their constituents that it's the turbines and renewables that failed when the windmills (it's turbines, idiot) are still going whoop, whoom, whoom, causing cancer, in nearby states.[emoticon][emoticon][emoticon]

You would be better served to pick a side here, as to not make your posts look even more ridiculous than they typically are....
With your mindset that you've clearly displayed, you now beleive windmills casue cancer, aka, are a "bad" renewable energy source?

You would have sounded at least a bit less touched had you blamed the windmills for killing bald eagles or something even remotely possible...

He's agreeing with your general point of view, yet you reply as if his opinion is that TX DID "manage their grid" well?[emoticon] [emoticon]

Half of Texas homes are electric heat and 75% of those are resistance heat....literally the most inefficient, electricity sucking way to produce heat, so ya, there probably was a run on power during those days, lol.
But, yeah, so 200+ people died in 100 year low temps that also lasted far longer than other record or near record events combined with near record snowfalls.

200 people die every summer from heat illness too. And aside from the indigent, the majority of the deaths were likely people who were almost too weak to survive anyway...kinda like how Covid deaths got pumped up but the reality was 90+% of the deaths were people whom the NEXT thing to get them would kill them whether it be the flu or a broken hip or a stroke...


Coincidentally, I was in Dallas during that deep freeze. It was very annoying. Coming from the north, I never considered it dangerous. Heck we only had 1 hockey game cancelled out of 5 or 6 and that was after the weather stated to break...but the refs couldn't get to the rink. The most dangerous part was I had a rental car that kept locking up a front wheel so I drove around for 3 days, more often than not with one wheel acting like a ski....thank god for all the snow, or it would have been dead in the water!


Sensationalizing that event as a comparison to about anything is complete jackassery, but I would like to here your views of how you think the Cali grid would do, if it was below zero for several days from San Diego all the way up to Sacramento?
I mean, I'm sure it would be fine by your logic...people could just sit in their Teslas with the heat on watching Tik tok videos on the big screen...
