RE: Electric vehicles are arriving. What about the infrastructure?
We will need about 30% more power lines and generating plants along with charging stations at every restaurant, hotel, shopping center and every mile along the interstate hwy system. We will also have to have a credit card to operate the charging stations. Several million tones of aluminum and copper wire for transformers and conductors to the charging stations will also be needed. The lithium for the batteries will exceed the worlds current proven reserves just to supply the needs for the United States. Afghanistan has the largest supply which could be problematic.
