    Do you think Tesla will roll their Semi's to the Hurricane damaged areas with supplies? They could setup large powerwalls and charge them with solar. In a few years ICE will be banned and we will have to recharge emergency vehicles and trucks that deliver supplies to disaster areas anyways Why not start putting the logistics in place now.

    While I agree with the sentiment you expressed, I find this timeline to be highly optimistic. :oops:

    California has already banned state agencies from purchasing any gas powered vehicles from 2020 on
    As part of Gov. Gavin Newsom's administration's attempt to combat climate change, California has banned the purchase of gasoline-fueled vehicles by government groups, according to the Sacramento Bee.


    The state fleet includes about 51,000 cars and trucks, according to the governor's office. As of last year, more than 3,000 of those vehicles were hybrids or zero-emission vehicles, according to the Department of General Services.

    The rule also mandates that beginning next year, state agencies purchase vehicles from manufacturers that recognize the state's authority to set its own emission standards. Currently, the Trump administration is trying to revoke that ability.

    I’m sure the taxpayers will be thrilled they get to pay top dollar for state cronies to be riding around in electric vehicles.

    They didn't even turn on free SC or unlock buffer/sw limits for ArkLaTex. All we got was a stupid message telling us to stay charged.

    That reminds me of a cheech and chong movie where one of the defining lines was "weed's gonna be legalized in a few years" -- 40 years later we're still waiting (federally)

    Tesla has done this in the past for disaster areas. They have trucked in temporary Supercharging units with battery support. They have also done this during high projected useage areas like holidays or festivals.
    They have also triggered free Supercharging for those evacuating threatened areas.
