California hastened to ban cars with gasoline and diesel enginesSeptember 30, 2020
Experts from the local EPA agency are convinced of this. According to them, the rapid development of the fleet of electric vehicles will lead to the fact that the state will not be able to provide all its residents with electricity. Already, turning off the lights in California has become commonplace.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has not approved a plan by California Gov. Gavin Newsom to propose banning the sale of new gasoline and diesel cars in the state by 2035.
The EPA is confident that such a strategy will affect the local electricity grid. Power outages in California are not uncommon, and such accidents are called “unprecedented in size and scope.” The state is even forced to turn to its neighbors for electricity.
In this regard, a logical question arises, and will the state be able to provide electricity to local residents when the fleet of electric cars grows?
Recall that California today owns about 11% of all car sales in the United States.
As for the ban on fossil fuel cars, it was to work by 2035. The main argument in favor of such a policy was the thesis that the transportation sector “is responsible for more than half of all carbon emissions in California.” This is what the California governor’s administration emphasized.
Earlier, our portal said that the UK wants to ban gasoline cars in 2030. This is ten years ahead of schedule. Local authorities have decided to “speed up” this difficult process to revive the electric car market.
