True, but sometimes you can't help it. I had to get a hold of the electric company a few weeks ago to make sure my tenant switched the electricity to his name before he moved it. It was an hour wait. I don't have that kind of time at work, so I sent a request they call me back. When they do and you don't answer, you have to go through the process all over again. There are other times when I'm delivering to an unmanned warehouse and I have to call the main plant to send somebody over to unload me. Depending on how far away they are, it could take up to a half-hour or more. So I call a half-hour before I expect to arrive.

Now I can't do that legally anymore. If I get caught, it's a $2,400 fine. All it does is disrupt business.

Obama phones must be used to get more handouts or they expire.

We call it “grid anxiety!” But Fear not the grid will be able to handle it, according to just about every study that's been done over the past few years except FAUX News the purveyors of doom and gloom, is for some inexplicable reason, pushing the fallacy. As the power grid stands right now it can already handle millions of electric vehicles without bringing any further power plants online. You will, however, have to make certain improvements to your existing in-house wiring on older homes. Besides, Israel and some European countries are building a “battery exchange” network – no charging time no waiting. Car manufacturers are working with cities, utilities and consumers to make sure the grid is ready and buyers are educated. PG&E president Jim Piro states that the utility has few concerns about adding cars to its grid for the moment! So just relax naysayers and take a chill-pill ... electric car battery packs are highly sophisticated assemblies controlled by computer, heated or cooled depending on climate or seasonal weather. Charging is absolutely-positively no problem as a new type of infrastructure is emerging to swap, not charge, a battery pack within minutes. Just think (if that’s possible) how worthless your gas car would be without gas stations on every corner – it’s a no-brainer!!

Funny. You people keep talking about "Constitutional limits" as long as you get to define what those "limits" are.

Seems fascist to me.

In fact, since electric vehicles are mostly recharged at night - during the off-peak period for the power grid - their impact is perfectly manageable; remember you half-baked wingnuz morons said the same thing about TV sets. Power companies in fact can’t wait to sell their surplus “night-power” to electric car owners. Not only that bur power is much cheaper at night. Go back to you TV and watch your FAUX News fantasies, the purveyors of doom and gloom!!!!

You're suffering from not having an electrical engineering degree and 30 years of experience in the field.

But as Neil Armstrong once said, ignorance on a topic doesn't prevent someone from expressing an opinion.
