One of the more exciting projects is an in-depth analysis of the electrical energy grid and the electrical energy generation capacity from 2022 to 2030.
The federal government is promoting the sale of electrical vehicles (EVs) through very generous subsidies and the auto industry is investing significant resources to increase the production of EVs. The stated goal of both the federal government and the auto industry is to increase the sales of EVs to 30% of the overall car sales in the U.S. BY 2030.
Our concern is that no one seems to be seriously looking at how many EVs can the electrical grid and the electrical grid and the electrical generation system support in 2030 vs. how many have been sold by 2030.
The demand for electricity by EVs must be factored into what we will also see in the demand growth for housing and industry, as well as needed as opposed to forecasted power generation and distribution.
Since New Hampshire is part of the New England power grid the core question is how many EVs can be supported by its electric power system by 2030. Unfortunately, this question is being ignored and certainly is not researched.
Our concern is that the demand for electricity by EVs will far exceed the supply leading to regular brown out and black outs. ISO New England's President and CEO, Gordon van Welie, has already warned that an extended cold snap in 2022 could necessitate region-wide rolling power outages that would affect different people and companies at different and short periods of time.
The goal of our study is to quantify the total number of EVs the system can be support by 2030 and suggest ways to deal with it, such as restricting EV registration until reliable power generation and upgraded grids are in place to support continued sales of EVs.
This is an ambitious project because it is evaluation th entire New England power grid. We estimate a minimum cost to design the scope of the study and to determine the full cost to involve two to three working weeks, or approximately an investment of $25,000. The scheduling goal of this preliminary stage would be to complete it in three to six months after funding is in place. Assuming engagement in the first half of 2022 with a committed budget, the final study would be completed and available for presentation(s) within the first quarter of 2023.
We would strongly suggest that the scope of this study not be limited to just the New England grid, but all of the different power grids across the country should be examined as well.
Although our initial focus is on the New England power grid, once that study is completed we would be in a positon to quickly and efficiently apply the same analysis to other power grids across the country.
It is fundamental to maintaining freedom and liberty within a republic, and the status of those governed by its laws as citizens, and not subjects, that they choose government officials charged with making and enforcing those laws. That, at a minimum, requires that each person choosing those officials be citizens of the republic - citizens of the United States for federal elections and citizens of New Hampshire for its state and local elections.
New Hampshire and its increasingly law identification and qualifications law has slowly come to allow non-New Hampshire citizens to vote in its state and local elections. Moreover, we see sister states who have or moving toward allowing non-U.S. citizens to vote in their state and local elections.
With its First-in-the-Nation Primary and its long tradition of remaining true to traitional American values while surrounded by states infused with the tyranny of cosmopolitan, post-American ideologies, New Hampshire is unique position to demonstrate to the citizens of those states that they need not and should not have their right of self-governance taken by non-citizen voters. This project is dedicated to pursuing this effort through a multi-year and multi-phase effort to amend the New Hampshire constitution so that voting in all federal, state and loca elections in New Hampshire is limited to American and New Hampshire citizens.
The NH Center Right Meeting exists to facilitate communication of liberty and conservative principles, policies, and initiatives. It is sponsored by the NH-based Pine Tree Public Policy Institute with the assistance of Americans for Tax Reform and AFP-NH as venue host.
We need support from all of us within the Center Right as we look to sustaining the success of these meetings and expanding all of our conservative voices and reach within New Hampshire and beyond. You can support us by mailing contributions to the PAC at -
