Will Supercharging Kill the Grid?!?

Will Supercharging Kill the Grid?!?

I chart the power draw and charge rate in a Tesla Model Y to understand just how much energy the Supercharger stations consume. In an all electric future will there be enough energy to power these 8,16, or even 100 pedestal stations? 250kW is a ton of power, but is it just an illusion?

I also bust the myth of too many EVs in a neighborhood causing brown outs, and we get a bonus of seeing how snow plows clear a charging area. A fun, quick video that should answer some questions and help fight the FUD.
