Re: Electricity vs Petrol/Diesel prices
A quick search for business costs of electricity finds this
The average bill for UK business is £2,528 per year. The average unit price per kilowatt hour (kWh) is 9.50p. The average daily standing charge is 20p per day. Most businesses use between 15,000 and 25,000 kWh per year.
as opposed to the reaming the general sucker gets
Electricity is typically more than three times as expensive as natural gas – 14.37pence per kWh rather than 3.80p. It also emits nearly three times as much carbon dioxide: 0.447kg per kWh rather than 0.184kg.
So 5p per kWh difference to the good for business and nearly 3p per kWh over petrol.
1 litre of diesel-oil 10,0 kwh 35,9 mJ @120.3p/litre ( average )
at 10kWh equivalent you have 93p vs 120p.
Artics do about 41l/100km thereby costing £49.32/100km and use 410kWh which costs £38.13 in electricity. Using the usual conversion ratio for USD and GBP 1$=1£ you would need to drive 178,731 km to get the extra £20,000 back from the standard Tesla truck.
