EV Mandates Being Considered in 17 States Despite Risks to Grids; 3 States “rebelling against rapidly moving toward electric vehicles”

By B.N. Frank

Experts continue to warn that electric vehicle (EV) mandates threaten the U.S. grid.  Additionally, U.S. grid operators have warned of the potential for blackouts if the switch to renewable energy isn’t slowed down.  Nevertheless, EV proponents continue to support their swift adoption in California (where last week residents were asked to NOT charge EVs to protect the grid) as well as in 14 other states.  Of course, earlier this year, California had passed an EV mandate which may obviously now be causing some to seriously rethink that decision.  Of course, California isn’t the only state to have a mandate – earlier this year, Washington passed one too.  Plenty more states seem to considering them as well.

California’s 2035 EV Mandate Being Debated In More Than Dozen States

by Tyler Durden

More than a dozen states are now debating whether to adopt California’s radical green-vehicle initiative, which bans all gasoline-powered new car sales by 2035.

Fox News reported seventeen states could soon be on a path to follow the Golden State’s emission standards.

Several of the 17 states are likely to move forward with the plan, including Washington, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and Vermont. California’s restrictions are the strictest in the country, mandating that all new vehicles run on either electricity or hydrogen by 2035.

Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, the District of Columbia, and Rhode Island are other states that might consider the new emission standards.

Meanwhile, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Virginia are three states rebelling against rapidly moving toward electric vehicles.

The problem with states mandating future new car sales to be 100% electric in 13 years is that power grids will need a drastic upgrade to handle the millions of new EVs. Consider California. There are more than a million plug-in vehicles registered in the state, and in the last week, utility officials requested EV owners not to charge their vehicles due to a menacing heatwave.

Without a power grid overhaul to reliable on-demand clean energy, such as nuclear, grids across the country will be under extreme duress in the future of increased EVs on roads, leading to instability issues and frequent blackouts, similar to a third world country (or California).

Forcing everyone to depend on a battery without a grid overhaul sounds like a catastrophe waiting to happen.

Let’s hope this 2030 prediction doesn’t play out:


EV charging threats to power grids isn’t isolated to the U.S.  In fact, last month, China shut down numerous charging stations to conserve power.  Other significant problems with EV charging stations have been reported as well (see 1, 2).

EVs themselves have also been associated with various issues including fires (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) and high costs (see 1, 2, 3).  Health and environmental risks have been reported about EVs as well (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).  Got pets?  Radiation exposure from EVs and other common sources can affect them too.  Nevertheless, many U.S. legislators and government agencies continue to promote and fund the deployment of charging infrastructure as well as a rapid adoption of electric cars and trucks, hence last month’s approval of a $7500 taxpayer subsidy for buyers.
