    Default $5000 Federal EV rebate: Budget 2019

    https://www.theglobeandmail.com/poli...cle-incentive/

    Too bad for the paywall but sound like a potential $5k federal EV rebate program is coming.

    Toss the URL into outline.com and it'll bypass the paywall.

    So Alberta may get a rebate for a coal powered car?

    That's an interesting link to check during periods of extreme hot or cold weather too. A buddy of mine threw it up on Facebook for discussion during a -30c cold snap this winter. Sure makes you appreciate the non-renewable baseload generation when you see how little renewable provides those days.

    If I’m reading it right, the wind portion isn’t even really running now. Is the time correct?

    I don't know how "up to the minute" those figures are. There's a couple members in that industry that hopefully can chime in with solid answers.

    Numbers are live but about 5 mins delay.

    Both wind and solar are not reliable form of generation.

    If you want to get off coal and eventually gas and goes emission free, we need nuclear.

    Hydro is BS too even if BC is all high and mighty with it.

    These EV rebates are such bullsh*t.

    They're basically just $5k/car bonuses payable to auto manufacturers who we all know the Liberals want to appease to buy votes in Onterrible and Quebec.

    It's a corporate subsidy dressed up to appear like a benefit to (wealthy) taxpayers.

    If anything, they should be taxing vehicles based on their mileage / consumption / emissions as is done in Europe. Of course that won't happen since pick-ups and SUVs are what help the Big 3 in North America survive.

    A couple weeks ago, the CSPG hosted a special speaker who discussed energy demands, more specifically electricity and emissions. The numbers don't lie and we (the world) need to abandon coal and go all-in on natural gas. Hear that Germany?

    For the love of god yes. With the caveat that we find something to do with the waste, even if that is just bury it 1,000ft below ground (or whatever appropriate place/distance).

    Wonder how many tons of waste a year a typical nuclear reactor makes... costs for private space launches have come down so much, soon we can just fire that into the sun

    I don't even know if it's tons per year. France's grid is (or was) 100% nuclear IIRC, but I heard they are planning to shut down reactors which is idiotic.

    EDIT:
    France derives about 75% of its electricity from nuclear energy, due to a long-standing policy based on energy security. Government policy is to reduce this to 50% by 2035.

    Saw in the CTV story
    A $5,000 federal incentive to purchase zero emission vehicles like electric or hydrogen-fuelled cars with a retail value of less than $45,000.

    As I mentioned before, they're just trying to find new ways to subsidize the Big 3 in Onterrible.

    Really you should look at the balance in the off-peak hours (overnight) when the majority will be charging.
    Baseload will still be majority coal
