is NZ generating enough electricity for wide spread EV adoption?
This story from ACT MP Simon Court a couple of weeks ago says maybe not.
I'm going to get over my instinctive reaction to reject out of hand anything an ACT MP has to say on the topic of the environment and simply point out that several studies have, in fact, been done on this topic, and the shocking answer is that NZ needs to expand the generation and distribution networks. Fortunately, more electricity used means more electricity sold so the null option as presented in the "let's build more generation and distribution capacity" business cases over the next few years will probably not be the one chosen.
It's always hilarious when someone trots out that line. Like, no, the people whose whole career it is to run the electricity networks totally overlooked this incredible insight you, Internet Rando, just had regarding system capacity.
