There's nowhere you can go on the islands that you can't get back to on a single charge. So no need for them there.

Unless you know someone on that island that will let you plug in. Electric is great, but still has massive limitations.

I think that is a perfect illustration.

I get a kick out of the folks who are soooo proud to be saving the planet by driving their "zero emissions" vehicle not considering the fact that 63% of the US's electricity is produced by burning fossil fuels. Nuclear 19%. Renewable sources only 17%.

As of 2014, 95 per cent of BC's electricity was produced by hydroelectric generating stations - the remaining 5% are powered by natural gas - there is another huge hydro project being built in northern BC right now
