Californians grab the Tums after the cost to meet crazy Bidenmobile goals causes major heartburn

This certainly wouldn’t be the first time that the far-left state bit off more than it could chew.

But all the latest information suggests that the plans made by politicians weren’t well-conceived.

Now California just learned the cost to meet their crazy EV goals and it’s causing major heartburn.

As part of new regulations enacted by the state of California, all new passenger cars, trucks, and SUVs sold in the state are required to be zero-emission vehicles by 2035.

Many have derided these plans as “pie in the sky” and impossible to meet, but the Golden State has thus far been sticking to its guns.

Now there’s new information to suggest that there is a world of trouble ahead if these plans aren’t changed.

Given the state’s ongoing budget problems, it doesn’t make sense that the state’s political leaders would adopt policies like cutting off the sale of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in favor of electric vehicles (EV) better known as “Bidenmobiles.”

Or at least it wouldn’t if they weren’t blinded by far-left ideology.

$20 BILLION to upgrade transmission lines for the Bidenmobile switch

That’s because the cost to the state, and by extension its taxpayers, is downright obscene.

According to a new study by Berkeley, the Golden State must spend up to $20 BILLION on transmission line upgrades to support energy transfers to electric vehicles.

That figure is just for the cost of the lines and doesn’t consider grid stress that would occur from mandates that gas appliances be nixed in favor of electric ones.

Those unaccounted-for costs are likely to drive the overall expense to be even higher.

According to Thecentersquare.com, the plan involves quadrupling the existing number of electric vehicle chargers.

The state now has 10,000 public high-speed Bidenmobile chargers with plans in place to build 30,000 additional ones.

But there are serious questions about consumer enthusiasm for Bidenmobiles because high interest rates that have worsened considerably since the start of the Biden administration have made the purchases much more expensive.

News reports of poor reliability and higher repair costs are likely contributing to the waning enthusiasm for Bidenmobiles by consumers.

All these plans put in place by politicians are occurring against a backdrop of fiscal disaster for the state.

They’re doing this when the state is already $38 billion in the hole

The state is already facing a nearly $38 billion budget deficit for the coming fiscal year.

What that means is that these additional costs will be passed right back onto the consumer at a time when everyday Californians are already struggling just to make ends meet.

Energy bills for consumers are already on the rise in the state.

This can be attributed to wildfire mitigation, transmission, and distribution investments.

In addition, green energy subsidies are responsible for significant energy price increases. 

Energy in California costs more than it does in any other state except Hawaii, which sits in the middle of the ocean and has no choice but to import its energy.

In the end, what this report shows is that Californians won’t be getting a monetary break any time soon and the blame falls squarely on their elected officials.

Here’s to hoping for a change in approach, both for Californians and for other Americans who live in parts of the country where the politicians follow the formerly Golden State’s lead.
