    It has EVERYTHING to do with YOUR response to the OP. Not surprising you can't seem to grasp this.

    It seems that Elon Musk is your idol right now.

    Anyway, this here is a very relevant part in the OP:

    A utility company has run the numbers and warns that the US grid can't provide the charging power for all the upcoming electric trucks like the Tesla Semi that will be released on December 1. The electrification of a typical gas station would demand the amount needed for a sports stadium, while a regular truck stop would need the electricity of a small town.

    This is just a beginning. Do you see Elon Musk mentioned anywhere?

    If you want me to keep educating you further, don't be afraid to ask me.

    Tesla Semi truck stops would consume the electricity of small town USA as launch event scheduled for December 1

    A utility company has run the numbers and warns that the US grid can't provide the charging power for all the upcoming electric trucks like the Tesla Semi that will be released on December 1. The electrification of a typical gas station would demand the amount needed for a sports stadium, while a regular truck stop would need the electricity of a small town.

    A surge in EV charging demand, especially of the megawatt kind required for electric trucks like the Tesla Semi, would overwhelm the US grid, warns utility company National Grid Plc. Their numbers show that the electrification of just one regular gas station would put a strain on the grid equivalent to that of a sports stadium in 2030.

    A common truck stop full of Tesla Semis or similar electric rigs, on the other hand, will have the electricity consumption of a small US town by 2035, while a highway plaza electric truck and car stop will need the power of an industrial plant by 2045.

    The issue is not with the amount needed, as even in the worst-case scenario with rapid passenger and freight vehicle electrification, the global electricity demand would only be up 15% by 2040, but rather the speed and output that the charge needs to be delivered with.

    The Tesla Semi has a 82,000 lbs (37,195 kg) Gross Weight which it can truck along for up to 500 miles (804 km) on a charge, and its up to 1MWh battery estimate can recover 70% of its capacity in 30 minutes of charging. Tesla wants to solve the grid load problem by topping up the Semi at exclusive Megacharger stations that will be powered by solar energy. One such Megacharger, for instance, is built at the Modesto factory of the Semi's first customer - Pepsi - and Tesla will be holding a dedicated launch event to celebrate the first Semi truck deliveries there on December 1.

    Just like its Superchargers and newfangled North American Charging Standard, though, Tesla's Semi truck Megachargers will also have a competitor in the face of the 3.75MW Megawatt Charging Standard (MCS) for heavy-duty electric vehicles whose documentation is expected to be codified by the respective certification bodies in 2024.

    Elon Musk made the market for battery cars, its hard to ignore him. So naturally you attempt to do just that. And he's the one introducing the beatery semi. No one else applies.

    Be honest. Do you think that on Dec. 1 with an introduction of Tesla Semi-trucks, it will consume electricity the equivalent of a small city within one month of Dec. 1?

    No clue why you keep bringing up Mr. Musk who has nothing to do with this thread. From now on I am going to ignore you until you address the OP.

    Tesla is introducing the truck which this thread is based upon. Just because he is no longer cool does not change the fact that he IS why there are EVs. If you could set aside being petty you would know this.

    Okay so Tesla is introducing the trucks. Now explain how does that address the topic.
