Re: [EVDL] road taxes for EVs
As a full time electric vehicle driver I wonder about road taxes, not
that I mind escaping (smile)! Nice, but we do need to finance our roads.
I would expect that the issue will soon come up as more EVs are on the
road. I hope we can get ahead of the curve before something really
stupid is imposed on us!
Since we are talking about FITs ( feed in tariffs ) this could be
included, if a system was implemented that required the utilities give
us the absolute lowest industrial rate 5/6 cents? for EV charging for
both public stations and separately metered home charging, this could be
a time of use rate as well. The state would then reap a few additional
cents per KWH for road tax just like gas. To eliminate the possibility
of cheating the resulting price should always remain a couple of cents
below the residential cents per KWH charge.
Cheating in the other direction would be impractical and easy to detect
due to load patterns and tou charging.
