I am new to this whole concept of EV, however with the current exchange rate, price of oil, and our current Eskom situation, the whole picture seems to be doomed from the start.
In saying so, I do believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and am pretty sure that its not a train!! We have been dependent on oil for to long and need to look at alternative sources. With Eskom giving us load shedding, many people invested in gen set, and other forms of lighting. I personally converted my house to run on 12v led strip lighting. The prices of these lights have decrease over the past year.
Having said this, once we invest in EV and the numbers grow, cost will decrease (unless controlled by a monopoly). As for the charging of the batteries, next time you visit PE, try and count the number of wind turbines in Cape road alone! We need to become less reliant on services supplied.
