Re: Why not just switch the batteries

Petrol stations seem to have managed it, so I don't agree that planning permission will be an obstacle.

Petrol station fires rarely reach the tanks, they tend to be on the surface where they can be dealt with relatively easily with conventional firefighing means. I wouldn't be so sanguine about dealing with, say, a Tesla battery pack catching fire in the middle of a warehouse full of others like it.
