...that was raised here long ago.....

Emergency Evac with an electric vehicle.....


“What’s your vehicle evacuation plan at that point?”

State Sen. Jeff Brandes (R-Fla.), one of the panelists for “The Promise and Challenges of Electric Vehicles” at NCSL, acknowledged the problem and said Florida was examining the issue. It did not yet have a solution.

State Sen. Faith Winter (D-Colo.) said a “really creative company” in Colorado was examining the feasibility of putting chargers in crates and deploying them “like we deploy water, like we deploy firefighters.” Winter said Colorado is aware of this issue and is looking for a solution.

Alex Schroeder, interim executive lead for the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation, didn’t attempt to answer the question.


I do not have much Faith in Faith......

That is well disconnected from reality.

No problem. Just Darwin weeding out the incompetent and those that do not think that it "will never happen to me."

During emergence evacuations such as the commonly repeated hurricane evacuations here along Florida's gulf coast chances of finding a gas station with fuel are very slim.

So your screwed no matter what you might be driving or trying to charge with a generator.

Reading this thread made me wonder if someday FEMA will have big diesel generators on trailers or trucks that could be parked in places like rest areas along major travel corridors in case of a major evacuation order. They could run multiple chargers all at once so at least the electric vehicles may be more useful than a gas vehicle with no gas in a situation like that.

They clog up the evacuation routes so those who did plan ahead still can’t leave.

Exactly, or big azzed storage batteries like Musk has been building.

Been through a lot of hurricane evacuations where you could go from South Florida to Georgia before you found a fuel station with gas.

Everybody starts hoarding a couple days prior to them even knowing where a storm might hit.

In all honesty finding a electric outlet could be easier than finding gas.
Interstate charging systems would be swamped but they're not your only option.

Good look siphoning the extra electricity out of your other vehicles and putting it in cans in the trunk.

I question the portable generator. Just had a new lithium 12V battery fail in our travel trailer and had some conversations with the seller. During my trials and tribulations, we hooked up our 12-volt charging system (Honda 3000 watt) directly to the battery and were getting a reading of 19V at the poles. Seller said the battery's safety system would not accept charges below or above a certain threshold and at 19 volts nothing would make it into the cells. What does it take currant wise to hop up a Tesla?

Also, where do all of those electrons come from?

Edit: Just looked it up. 60 amp circuit. Code says new builds in Oregon have to be thusly wired even though the owner does or will not have an EV.

Still don't know on the electrons.

The thing to remember is that EV’s as a rule charge at home, so they are pretty much already always “full”. No need to “top off” before evacuation.

Of course, range is an issue if you have to evacuate from south Florida to Georgia, but running fro Houston to San Antonio or DFW would not be an issue.

THIS^^^^^^

I don't think Home Depot sells 'Electron Storage containers' for my EV.........................yet!

But I have them for my gas guzzler......

Top off before the storm, have another 'tankfull' standing by in jerry cans............... take them with you if you need.....

Can't do that with an EV....

If the power grid is down, one generac and the gas station is back in business........ if the power grid is down you and your EV are phouced....

After Hurricane Andrew my power was out for three WEEKS...........................

It 'may' come, but we are not yet ready for widespread EVs...............

Or maybe THIS.............

Drive forever, never stop, full-time recharge....

So it's YOU that drains the fuel stations prior to the storms preventing others from being able to find gas!

Many of those evac routes are useless anyway. My sister lives near Tacoma, WA. They have posted evac routes in case Mt Rainier ever blows. On a normal day, the rush hour traffic has all of those routes at a standstill. In an emergency, nobody's going anywhere.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.
