    Default EV drivers struggle to find charging stations

    It is already starting. There is not enough chargers next there will be a shortage of electricity to charge cars and trucks


    https://www.foxbusiness.com/energy/e...rging-stations


    FOX Business correspondent Jeff Flock reports on New York City’s electric vehicle charger shortage amid the state’s decision to ban gas-powered cars by the year 2035.
    New York is dealing with a "complicated" shortage of electric vehicle charging stations ahead of its plan to ban the sale of gas-powered cars by 2035.

    FOX Business' Jeff Flock reported from New York City, Thursday, explaining that by 2030, the city says they will need an additional 40,000 plugs to fulfill the demand. According to the city of New York's last credible report in 2020, they currently have 1,500 public charging plugs.DC fast chargers, which typically fully refuels an electric vehicle at a rate of 20 to 30 minutes, are additionally suffering from a shortage in New York City. They currently have 117 chargers and need more than 5,500 more to achieve their 2030 goal.

    Flock noted that, while it's most sensible to put chargers "where the people are," some popular charging stations -- including the one he reported from in Thursday's 'Varney & Co.' segment -- have not received great reviews on PlugNYC, the city's online network of publicly accessible EV chargers.Flock reported from a charging station on 4 West 93rd street that received a slew of complaints from consumers. These reviews have shone a light on some of the unique issues that can come with mandating electric vehicles.

    "One person says this is slow and expensive, often blocked by ice. Another one says blocked by a car. Another says ice from this morning until now. And another says a Tesla is parked there, but it's not charging," Flock said to host Stuart Varney.
    The nationwide push for electric vehicles has brought a "complicated" issue to the city of New York that has the potential to burden residents for years.

    Do you idiots have a cell phone? Type in charging stations and your zip code. Then you can narrow it down to neighborhoods. You will be surprised to find out how many there are and how convenient they are. But of course, most EV drivers charge at home and never NEED a charging station. But if you are eating at a restaurant or shopping, you can top off while you go about your business.

    The truth is it's easier to find a charging station than it is to find a place to air up your tires yourself, as most of them either had the hose cut off- or they eat your quarters then don't work.

    And most people are more frustrated about that!

    So first things first man!

    And, if you don't have an EV, stop bitching about things that don't even concern you Mr. BITCHY BODY SNOOTY TOOT!

    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    Do you idiots have brains? Last summer CA couldn't provide the energy if needed and had rolling blackouts. The enviropussies don't want more power plants but the assholes want to ban ICE vehicles so there will be higher demand for electricity but no way to provide it. Fucking morons

    Can't charge at home if you live in an apartment!

    Okay. You have a list of charging stations you can go wait in line for.

    Tires are not fuel or a charge, dumbass.

    Apartments have chargers nowadays. But do you think everyone lives in an apartment? Do you think if there are no chargers, they will buy an EV? That was a typical weak response for you.

    I have never seen a line. Where do you live with those long lines? As usual, you are making shit up. Since you do not have an EV, you have no experience with them. So you make shit up.

    No, this is YOU taking things out of context, making special pleadings, and word stuffing, just like always.

    You claim to never go to charging stations. You charge at home, remember?

    Nope. There's a line at the nearby charging station right now.

    Don't need any.

    I don't need to own an EV to see the line. I don't need to own an EV to know how long they take to charge. I don't need to own an EV to understand the problems with range and performance. I don't need to own an EV to understand Li-ion batteries and what they can do and what they have done (destroy cars, container ships, etc). I don't need to own an EV to observe a freeway and see that less than 1% of the cars on the road are EVs. I don't need to own an EV to see the problems with lithium supplies, cobalt supplies, electrical supplies, or the difficulty in maintaining them that YOU IGNORE.
    I don't need to own an EV to watch government steal my money to pay for YOUR incentives, and to impose mandates for EVs. I don't need to own an EV to understand the science you reject, the engineering you reject, or the math you reject, or the history you reject.

    Strawman fallacy.
