Reading the articles “Cruising with Renewables” (HP152) and “EVs Don’t Cost Much to Run” (HP153) brings me to some reflections about this difficult matter of energy and its associated costs. And it’s true: The math is tricky—quite tricky.
Any form of energy has its price, but both articles suggest that these particular end users pay little or even nothing. From the natural way of seeing life, how can we be entitled to something for nothing? Let’s look at some more details.
The final question still remains: How much does a kWh really cost? If it is free for me, someone is surely paying for it in many forms and ways.
