Swedish Electric Buses Charged By Diesel Generators

We are constantly being told that we should switch to electric vehicles to reduce climate emissions

In Sweden there is a company called X-trafik that operates buses in the cities of Gävle and Sandviken.

They have bought in 52 electric buses from the Chinese company BYD to become “environmentally friendly”.

However, this ‘green’ shift has caused massive chaos with freezing buses in the ice cold Swedish winter and hundreds of cancellations.

Of course, all paid for by the Swedish tax payer.

Turns out that the electric buses didn’t have enough range and they couldn’t charge the buses fast enough, which led to up to 100 buses being cancelled every day, leaving people stranded in the cold Swedish winter.

In fact, there simply isn’t enough energy and infrastructure to go around in order to charge all these new electric buses.

The Solution?

 

They have now brought in massive diesel generators to be able to charge the electric buses – this of course at an extra cost.

Yes, you read that correctly. They cannot charge the new electric buses because there isn’t enough charging capacity to go around.

This reminds me of how they had to use diesel generators to keep wind turbines in Scotland warm during the winter.

It sounds very funny until you think about the fact that YOU are paying for this madness.

So they had to bring in DIESEL generators to charge these new “environmentally friendly” buses.

You literally cannot make this up.

People are being told that it is good for the environment, but in reality, they are getting scammed.

  3. Electric cars and busses aren’t the answer but the bonus is the tech coming out of these industry’s has a good flow on effect for heavy machinery . The sub 60volt tech is great at replacing belts , chains and hydraulic drives and even pto shafts in industry.
