As one of my Favorite electrical Engineers points out, “We need to see the Chevy Volt as a multifunctional platform.”
Here’s what you may have overlooked! The Volt is also a rolling energy storage unit, there’s no reason you couldn’t power your house, barn, or shop with a charged up Chevy Volt. Let’s say you are a Dairyman and the power is out and you have cows to milk, how many cows can you milk off a charged up Obama Volt?
Some are saying the Volt will do well now that the price of gasoline is going through the roof, and if we see the new Volt as an energy storage unit, consider what the new power grid of the future might look like. If your chevy Volt is plugged in, you might be the source of energy to cover peak loads on the grid and be paid good money per KWH for those peaks.
We know that most environmentalists are waiting for the government to give them a volt, but now that you know how practical they are, you might order yours now?
If you know a Person who believes strongly in green investments, this may be the time to shame him into buying the Chevy volt, what are greenies waiting for?
