Default Re: The Comparison: Closing prices per mile (gasoline vs. electricity)

What kind of price can you put on clean air? Clean land? Clean water? I did my conversion on an old car (recycled it) and I even used used EV parts where I could. Total cost for my conversion without labor (that is my fun time) is around $3500 max. It is nice to not see oil dripping and not to have the smell of gasoline and not to hear that old engine. My reasons are for our future and not about saving money. If you want to save money just go buy an old used car and fix it your self and enjoy it. No payments and you save by doing your own work. That is what you do if you just want to save money. I actually did both. Saved money and saved the planet. It is not only my home but yours. I did think of you too.

that's the general price atm... Thundersky is that price currently. I've talked to a few places that give prices in the 40cent/watt hour range.

You can find LiFepo4's on ebay for 2500 for 8kwhr... but I don't exactly trust it.

I have on good authority from several ex-chinese suppliers I've done business with that volume wise, you can pull 20cents/wh.
