Re: Electric Cars in Chile

All this green talk resolutely ignores the elephant in the room: In my lifetime the world population has tripled , from around 2.5 Bn. to 7.5 Bn. Every generation is consuming more resources of all kinds than its predecessor. The emerging nations, the ones with the largest populations, will be where...

Re: Electric Cars in Chile

From Reddit : We have been offgrid for 10 years because we could not get a power easement. If you can get grid tie for 12 grand, wait, if you can get grid tie for 30 grand, go for it without hesitation. You will be money ahead and you wont have to trouble shoot your power system at 8:00 on a very co...

Re: Electric Cars in Chile

Brit.......how do my home solar panels charge my car that is 20 km away at my place of work? Very easily. They wait for you to drive 20km to home! If you had solar panels at your house and an electric car, you would be charging overnight at home each day Charge your home batteries, (upping your sol...

Re: Electric Cars in Chile

Yeah there would have to be solar equipped parking structures with panels on the top and hookups for the cars inside so while people are at work the cars charge. There wouldn't be any city centres left, just Solar car parks sprawling out everywhere. Single-storey for hopefully obvious reasons. Talk...

Re: Electric Cars in Chile

Thank you for this. I had to sleep on it and take a shower before I realized my mistake there. Now I'll try to figure out how many square meters of solar panels it will take to produce those 240 MWh/h. Or should it be 480 MWh/h given the theory the cars will be charging at night? Appreciate your ho...

Re: Electric Cars in Chile

While Britkid's arguments are the usual mix of wishful thinking and having your cake and eating it, your sums are wrong: Britkid, I can see you prefer words over numbers, but please look at these back of the napkin computations: If average EV uses up 30 kwh every 160 km. https://pluginamerica.org/ho...

Re: Amazon to go to Colombia....Not Chile

My guesses:
Location, both geographical and also on the global fibre network.
Energy costs.

Re: Electric Cars in Chile

Lot of misconceptions here.To pick up on just a couple of points: On coal-fired power stations: ...we should keep a few open and just not use them except in very occassional situations, say if there happens to be very low wind and sun power, and at the same time unusual high demand.... Doesn't work ...

Re: Electric Cars in Chile

My other question is, doesnt Chile need a shit tonne more renewable electricity in their grid before they start promoting the use of electrc cars? otherwise its just transfering the problem elsewhere, i.e if everyone starts charging their electric cars then that energy is still coming from Chiles g...

Re: Rent out or sell half of duplex

Both sides are rented unfurnished, and IVA is being collected on both. This seems correct to me, but may not be. Anyone know for sure? No, I dont know. But according to the SII: Al arrendar un inmueble sin amoblar, el arrendador no tiene obligación de emitir boleta, pues este servicio no está grava...

Re: Rent out or sell half of duplex

Is there any truth to the sweeping generalization that laws and the system favors renters? In my experience, yes. We own a house that we prefer to keep empty after two painful experiences with renters. We bought it as a buffer zone to our nearest neigbours, not as a money maker, so I don't mind it ...
