And yes, my calculations are back-of-the-napkin bull****. Totally appreciate that. I don't work in this industry, but everyone gets caught up in the minutia of "but your EV is charged via coal", but there's a much larger picture going on and big oil has put up the curtain so you don't see what's really going on... The richest people in the world have somehow brainwashed a large portion of the country to continue enriching them with our taxpayer dollars... it's like stockholm syndrome.
100%. The majority of refined oil is used transportation and it is only a matter of time before all the means of transportation can be replaced by EV platforms.

For fun I was looking at my 7 year solar system that I have never cleaned. It is a small system with 16 panels 4.1kW and it produced 5.2MWh of energy. Looking at my Tesla 2022 energy consumption it was 2,672kWh with about total gas savings of $800. So my system can power two electric car for an entire year and paid $4500 bucks for my solar system . I think that is amazing and the panels are supposed to last 30 years +. I assume the solar panel technology has improved a lot since I purchased my system but it is amazing to me how a small foot print of panels can power two cars for the life of the vehicle easily.
