Here’s a fun EV fact. To match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in 12 hours, an EV charging station requires 600 50-kW chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million and a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid.
For. Each. Filling. Station. In. America.
But we’re going to have full EVs within 10 years.
Sticking with stupid…
This time, it’s wind💨.
Vestas has warned that supply chain and profitability woes in the wind turbine industry would continue for at least the rest of the year as the green energy industry faces challenging times.
Well, we read on to find:
Vestas warned that its 2022 forecast was subject to considerable uncertainty due to a lack of visibility on cost increases for raw materials and components as well as energy prices.
“We expect the near future and at least 2022 to be heavily impacted by cost inflation, while the emergence of an energy crisis caused by geopolitics and fossil fuel volatility has also resulted in dramatic increases in energy prices,” Vestas said.
You don’t say.
If you want to know why we’re not investing in wind companies, now you know. Sure, we’ll invest in those “cost inflation” components Vestas is so worried about. You know, like copper, steel, cement, and so forth, but not unprofitable wind companies reliant on government largesse to stay alive.
