How do you win over a liberal-minded community opposed to your WalMart development? Put in electric car charging stations, of course!
Better alert Georgia Power’s coal-fired power plants to expect the spike in demand.
I believe most of Georgia Power’s plants, at least the ones that power metro Atlanta, are now natural-gas fired.
The vast majority of GP’s power still comes from coal but, with some recent plant changes, you may be right about Atlanta-specific power. Strips out the comedy, though.
A significant portion of the power GP provides to the metro ATL comes from nuclear – Plant Vogtle below Augusta. There are currently 2 new nuclear power plants under construction there that will change the percentages even more.
What you’re saying is, electric cars add to nuclear waste.
Not as much as our a/c, lights, refrigerators, cell phones, computers, dryers, etc…
You mean nucular?
“How do you win over a liberal-minded community opposed to your WalMart development?”
You let Good Growth DeKalb keep yammering away!! :0)
Are these recent installations? Won’t they just have to tear them out when they redevelop the site?
The Blinks went in about a month ago and will remain through the pending redevelopment. (Source: Selig.)
Like my mother always said…”First come the electric charging stations…next thing you know, there will be WalMart there too.”
Power to the people.
Shouldn’t people with electric cars have to pay for the electricity that they are using to charge their car?
at the Blink stations you do pay for power you use!
I always thought Jimmy Carter overlooked the skateboard as an answer to the “energy crisis”. Now we have the ZBoard, an 18 mph, 20-mile range, electric skateboard. Katy bar the door, as my mother would say.
As an electric car owner, the best part of them is waking to a full tank every morning. Plus electricity is regulated!
