Then There Were Two

I hadn’t made the time to write this post, mostly because I wasn’t quite sure how to explain how weird it was to go from EV-curious to a two EV household in four months… Some of that weirdness is perfectly encapsulated in the research article linked below, which has helped to frame the things I wanted to say out loud.

Rising Supercharging Fees Suck, but they are not the end of the world… cough… autoevolution…

I understand why drivel like this hackjob from autoevolution titled “EVs No Longer an Economic Alternative to ICEs As Supercharging Rates Go Through the Roof” exist. The answer is clicks. So usually I ignore the poor math, logic, reasoning, and improper use of data because it’s generally better to just ignore stupid, than engage with it. But today, I’m rolling […]

Net Metering Isn’t a Subsidy

There have been several oddly similar anti-net metering op-eds floating around the national newspapers recently.

TIL, something awesome

I’m probably behind the curve on this one, but I recently discovered that battery replacers exist. This is awesome, especially this time of year when my wife adds all sorts of AA/AAA powered annoyances, er… flashing holiday lights, around the house and forgets to turn them off when it’s time to go to sleep. This doesn’t solve the energy waste […]

A little off topic, but who cares…

It’s no secret that I work in technology, so this is doubly in my wheelhouse. Not only is it great content, from a YouTuber I really enjoy, but relevant to my professional interests. Not exactly what we generally cover here, but Google demographics indicates that many of you are very likely to share similar interests, so I thought I’d share […]
