    I just wanted to point out a third country where the majority of electricity comes from renewable resources; New Zealand

    Hydro 54.2%
    Geothemal 9.0%
    Wind 2.3%

    Hey! How did I just notice that you're in New Zealand too! :biggrin:

    as for renewable energy: I hope BEVs catch on here for that reason.

    October 2009 is when I get my roadster! Though I won't be shipping it to NZ, sadly. I'll be in California by the time it comes.

    And you will have a Tesla?

    But my Visa expires a few months before the Tesla will come, a consolation prize I guess :biggrin:

    If you are anywhere in the East Bay Area I will let you drive with me :smile:

    (I just need to get my license first!):rolleyes:
