We're just gonna have to see where utility providers, investors want to put their money,and whether or not,the government wants to fast-track the permitting process.
I've wondered about the federal incentives,and if they could be a construed as a 'shadow' admission that tailpipes may not be the smartest thing we ever came up with,without ever publicly saying so.
We already subsidize a number of industries,so it appears that zero-carbon cars may be something of long-range interest to the feds.The Pentagon and intelligence apparatus appears to be,or so they say.
