Since Joe Biden entered office, Democrats have been pushing for a “green” revolution. Washington has dumped billions into green technology–with middling results.
Believing this was the future, some blue states aggressively started transitioning to “alternative” energy. New Jersey installed wind turbines off the coast–which some claim are killing whales.
Another blue state thought it was time to switch to electric snow plows. But with the first whiff of snow, they learned a harsh reality.
New York is staying with traditional diesel-powered snow plows after rejecting electric vehicles proposed as a replacement…
Essanews reports the move has been a failure. The reason was given as a simple lack of power…
Consequently, the electric vehicle’s power supply was insufficient for the demands of a New York winter, known for its heavy snowfall.
New York City considered buying electric Mack trucks for the upcoming winter snowfall. The goal was to equip these trucks with snow plows while removing garbage. But they quickly learned these “clean” electric trucks could not provide enough power to do the job.
Studies showed that electric vehicles needed to be in “constant movement,” which made collecting trash impossible. The buildup of snow in front of the vehicle proved to be too much for the electric motors.
We remind you, snowplows… plow snow, so there will always be resistance.
The trucks’ power supplies could not meet the demands of a New York winter, which often sees large dumps of snow, especially in January and February.
The city has been forced to ditch this plan and stick with traditional diesel-powered snow plows.
Many have been critical of Democrats’ mad dash for “green” technology. Biden’s ban on drilling for oil and gas has seen dramatic increases in the cost of electricity. Car companies are losing billions after making too many EVs.
Americans are refusing to buy electric vehicles because they lack the range of a gas-powered car.
Critics have also questioned why Democrats are focusing solely on EVs when there are other viable alternatives. Diesel-powered cars use less fuel than regular gas-powered cars, yet they are overlooked by Democrats.
Fuel cell-powered cars have been largely rejected, in favor of EVs that put huge demand on the grid.
It is possible that Democrats are pushing EVs at the behest of corporate lobbyists, despite the best interests of Americans.
- New York attempted to switch to electric-powered snow plows.
- The EV trucks could not handle the job, as their power supplies were too weak.
- The city will stay with diesel-powered trucks to handle the snow.
