lol ok point is that .00316547 = 0.31657%
Stop , Think ! .00316547 does not = 0.31657 ! 0.31657 % is almost 1/3 of the 139000 meters or 44,003.23 meters !
The two zeros after the decimal point are huge ! It makes the difference between 44,003.23 meters or 440 meters.
Grab your smartphone and do both equations , ( just don't let Zorba see you do it ) , or grab a old school calculator and run the numbers for yourself.
No I don't see anything wrong. Care to point it out?
.003 and .3 are absolutely not the same.
For the 3rd time , PLEASE pickup a calculator and punch in these numbers and prove this to yourself.
139,000 X .3 You will see the answer is 41,700
Clear your calculator then punch in this.
139,000 X .003 You will see the answer is 417
Now if you can go back to @BlueC original EV post and run the numbers you will find 440 EV meters divided by 139,000 total meters in the local grid system is
.00316547% of the total meters.
If you take your number of 0.31657 and multiple it by the total number of meters ,( 139,000 ) you will get the answer of 44,003.23 EV meters.
For all the talk about EVs and their effect on the grid, I'm amazed what doesn't get discussed is all the major corporations also being forced into "electrification" in their facilities. The major grocer and retailer my company builds stuff for is preparing to rip out every piece of fossil fueled equipment in their 5000+ stores to go all electric. Bakery ovens, pan washers, unit heaters in the grocery cart atrium and receiving docks. They're saving some by using waste heat from the refrigeration system to provide space heat to the store but they're still looking at over 900A (at 480V) just in water heaters and having to upgrade the store electrical service by 30%.
Just piling loads onto the grid as if it's unlimited. I guess thats how they treat money so we shouldn't be surprised.
