A new law in Illinois soon requires electric vehicle charging stations in the garage of new or renovated homes. Critics say this will increase costs. (Snip) Within 90 days of the effective date of the act, all large multifamily building permits shall require all parking to be EV-capable. Two years after the effective date, there are similar requirements on other residential buildings. Gabel said the cost would be under $1,000 for the setup in these homes. However, state Rep. Dan Swanson, R-Alpha, said other costs are not accounted for. "It requires a 200 amp service," Swanson said. "That will require additional costs

What a stupid world we live in. In the end, we won't need charging stations because nobody will be able to afford travel.

If the feature is mandated you can bet the cost will skyrocket. And for most homeowners, it will be a complete waste of money.

Does this require a charging point for each parking space in an apartment complex? How about a 2 car garage? As others have observed, this may well require a new 200A service to the home, that's probably another $4000 plus the run to the garage. Breaker panel already full? Good times for the IL electricians.

The electricity the comes into a home is 220 and the line is split down to 110 for most outlets. Stoves and furnace and A/C all pull 220 power so it isn't an issue. The real issue is, without fossil fuel or nuclear power, where is all this electricity coming from? Solar can't hack and neither can wind.

That's true #14, but if there isn't sufficient power capacity on the 11kV neighborhood distribution lines the electric company will have to not only add more capacity but also more step-down transformers. And to pay for it they will raise their rates. Dems have the stupidest ideas.

Federal agencies are secretly accumulating mountains of data that could be used for “blackmail, stalking, harassment and public shaming” of American citizens. That allegation doesn’t come from a pink-haired civil-liberties fanatic — it’s in a new report for the nation’s chief spymaster, Avril Haines. The Fourth Amendment recognized Americans’ right “to be secure . . . against unreasonable searches and seizures.” But Washington is mothballing that lofty standard for a new motto: “Those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear.” The latest federal surveillance tsunami is being spurred by purchases of commercially available information (CAI) that private companies vacuum up from data from smartphones, computers and other digital devices and trackers.

The secretive “Area 51” Air Force test range in southern Nevada established in the 1950s helped the U.S. and USAF prevail in the Cold War. Former Navy Captain Jerry Hendrix argues establishing a similar “Area 52” within Lake Michigan for the U.S. Navy could help us prevail in years to come. (Snip) “Foreign adversaries showed up not only to observe the operations and learn what they could about the United States’ most cutting-edge naval capabilities,” Hendrix wrote in Proceedings, “but also seized one of those assets,” a reference to the Saildrone Explorer unmanned surface vessel seized by Iran in August, 2022.

Smoke from forest fires arriving from Canada this summer is choking residents of the United States and millions more Canadians in the prairie and eastern provinces. Thick, roiling smoke may pose health hazards to the aged and infirm in both countries. The origin of the fires traces back to late winter and spring. An abnormally dry winter left Canada’s boreal forests in conditions ripe for fire outbreaks from various causes, including ignition from lightning strikes in tinder-dry material. Forested portions of Alberta and British Columbia have been the sites of pine bark beetle infestations that have left millions of acres of dead trees and combustible residue on the ground.
