....during Texas heat waves.


Tesla Asking Owners to Limit Charging During Texas Heatwave Isn’t a Good Sign


[Linked Image]


Tesla owners saw a warning on their screens recently, asking them to limit charging during peak hours to relieve Texas’ power grid.


Quote
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) announced last week that six of its power generation facilities went offline following a high demand for power amid a heatwave. During the outage, the six stations would have produced enough electricity to power more than half a million homes. Electric automaker Tesla, which is now headquartered in the state, followed up by asking owners of its vehicles to avoid charging their cars during peak hours in order to help prevent a further increase in demand for electricity.

"A heatwave is expected to impact the grid in Texas over the next few days," reads a photo of a message pushed to Tesla vehicles in Texas posted to Reddit last week. "The grid operator recommends avoiding charging during peak hours between 3 pm and 8 pm, if possible, to help statewide efforts manage demand."

For EV owners in Texas, conserving electricity doesn't just mean charging during off-peak hours. It also means adjusting driving habits—perhaps driving less overall or not turning the air conditioning down quite as far. Given that Texas also has the third-highest number of electric cars registered in the entire United States, it's easy to see how reducing the number of EVs charging at one time could reduce the stress on an already taxed grid.

According to research conducted by AAA, EVs can experience up to a 17 percent drop in range with the air conditioning on in 95-degree weather. Tesla has previously disputed this figure, according to The Verge, as have owners. However, there is one clear way to ensure that a vehicle is spending less time plugged in: don't take frequent, short trips that allow the cabin to become hot between drives. Maintaining a set temperature consumes less energy than cooling a sun-heated cabin, so reducing the number of short trips may prevent the need to plug in as frequently during a time when the power infrastructure is in high demand......

Ooooh, I ache for an electric car (not really). When can I get an electric tractor, I wonder? That should be a less than ideal tractor.

A big sham. Company I work for having to shutter the new battery plant for 2 weeks cause can’t get battery parts. Ain’t even started customer production yet. I don’t know why all these manufacturers are all in but they gonna be highly disappointed when all is said and done. Say they wanna be all electric by 2030 and I laugh and say ok sure. Also ain’t hardly no infrastructure been done here to charge. It’s a joke. Buy u an expensive golf cart that’s street legal lol.

This is the tell that all the progressive “greenies” are full of crap
And are simply playing politics to masses when they make the claims to be “all electric by 20XX”

There is no way:
1. There will be infrastructure to support even half electric vehicles within the next 25 years, meaning power stations and charging ability while away from home
2. There will not be an increase in electricity production to support such battery needs unless they also are increasing nuclear power plants all across the country. Our current electric grid is not set up to do this charging and unless significant means are put online over the next few years we will be sacrificing vehicle energy for home and business energy.

Saw a program last week where EV’s will soon have the capability to “reverse charge” to the grid in times of need. I believe it will be govt sponsored and will pay owners to do so. Interesting concept.

In parts of California they charge you an extra $700/month on your electric if you own an electric car, a surcharge I believe they are calling it.

You mentioned the problem, erase the epa red tape. Pigs will fly before that happens (and i am not talking about pigs flying in DNS’s videos)

They need to charge a road use tax in all states to make up for the gasoline taxes that EVs owners are not paying.

It’s actually sad how the epa kills modernization project with costly BS.

But it’s by design, thanks progressive and their empowered dust pollution officers
