    Yeah, I think I'll go with the people that run the network, rather than someone that thinks the current load at 2pm in the middle of summer holidays is somehow relevant.

    Yep and at some point we won't renew the Aluminium smelters power contract so there another huge reserve (15-20%) or something like that. And petrol heads and shellfish can watch this and be reborn (or shredded at the wheel, their choice).

    IMO, you would only buy a Tesla for the autonomous driving ability. EVERYTHING ELSE are nothing more than glorified golf carts. It doesn't matter about the build quality, that's not what Telsa fans are about because their cars aren't made to win car shows.

    I agree, to pay $60K - $90K for a non-Tesla EV is crazy when the ICE version could be less than half price of the EV version. I'm sure there's a bit of glee factor so one could put that to numbers but for petro costs, over 10+ years, how much fuel would the ICE consume?
