Folks, I was advised by an NIE engineer that the grid isn't up to the strain of charging multiple EVs - think every street 30 houses charging their own car at 7.5Kw/h for 8-10 hours a night - I can see streets melting. Maybe Old Salt can tell us differently?
I do know that the gov is looking at nuclear power stations but how can they claim that it's 'clean'?

Definitely need some infrastructure developments before switching to EV.

My only question to them is why did they leave home with only 45 miles charge on a 190 mile trip when the car fully charged can do 230 miles, sounds more like they needed to be more prepared for the journey and charged the car at home, yes the charging stations situation did not help but does seem a little silly in my eyes.

They weren't leaving home, they were leaving for home. Maybe where they were there was no charging capability?
