    Solar roof tiles

    Powerwall2 has been made available and are being installed in Australia since June '17. Since Australia and Hong Kong uses the same frequency, I would assume Powerwall2 is available to be installed in Hong Kong.

    2017 FRT Renewal

    I wonder what can we do now to influence the law makers to revisit and wave the Electric Vehicle First Registration Tax in the future (i.e. from April 1, 2018 and forward). Does Hong Kong Government accept partitions? There are several websites allow people to create partitions for people...

    Hong Kong First Registration Tax

    I think point should be made (in additions to all your good points) would be the financial benefit on reduction of health care caused by the pollution. In additions, how would the money saved in health care to help on road maintenance in Hong Kong. I would really like 100% FRT be waived for BEVs.

    Hong Kong First Registration Tax

    I am only 25+ minutes into the video. Why would Dr Hon Fernando CHEUNG Chiu-hung not get an EV to transport her daughter? The disable of her daughter could well be caused by the environment (the mother breaths in dirty road side air while carrying her daughter :-)

    Hong Kong First Registration Tax

    I think another arguement, by promoting EV by eliminating FRT would save them money in health care (as the air is cleaner and less people get sick).

    2017 FRT Renewal

    I, too, get the impression that the main purpose of Hong Kong to promote EVs is to improve air quality. Unlike many other Countries, promoting EVs for environmental reasons such as reduce fossil use, and to achieve the goal of energy independent (with renewable). It seems very likely that the...

    Even if there is no incentive, you get savings in driving electric instead of gasoline and the savings in the cost on maintenance (no filter, no oil change, no fan belt, etc.etc.etc..), AND parking on a reserved place in a busy garage. It feels good when other ICE drivers were circling the...
