"Get Current, Drive Electric" - Georgia Power.

“Get Current, Drive Electric” – Georgia Power.

Georgia Power (GP) released multiple EV-related videos; from testimonies to commercials. 

These two commercials mainly wrap up EVs in a nutshell, while sending out a very positive message:

Here are a couple of testimonies from Georgia Power. However, the videos do not stop at someone just stating how much they enjoy their lug-in. The following videos are packed full of very important / absolutely need-to-know information. Take a look:

“Watch this video to hear from Tum about how driving an electric vehicle has changed his life. He also explains the difference in electric vehicles, compared to gas vehicles, and how they are more efficient.”

“I think of EV’s like a smart phone, where every night you go home and plug it in. It’s natural.” – Tum :

“Watch this video to hear from Chris about how driving an electric vehicle has changed his life. He also explains the difference in the three different electric vehicle charging options that are available for consumers.”

“It’s like having a gas station at your house.” – Chris

“Watch this video to hear from Evelyn about how driving an electric vehicle has changed her life. She also explains the difference in the three different types of electric vehicle options that are available for consumers.”

“We’ve reduced our monthly gas cost by $400.” – Evelyn

“Watch this video to hear from Jennifer about how driving an electric vehicle has changed her life.”

“You can’t beat paying $30 for electricity a month to power your car, versus stopping to pay $30 a week (for gas).” – Jennifer


Per every video description, there’s this from Georgia Power:

“Electric transportation can help consumers save money on fuel and maintenance costs, and reduce their environmental impact. And as a domestic source of energy, electric transportation can contribute to our nation’s energy independence.”

Georgia Power hit the nail on the head with these videos.

Better advertising than we’ve seen out of GM, Nissan!

Well done Georgia Power!

One of the best ads I’ve seen so far (about electric cars)

Love that Chris is listening to WREK 91.1FM 🙂

Tum gets kW confused with kWh.

How does Jennifer save so much with no dedicated place to plug in? Are Georgia Power’s public charging rates very cheap? Around here using a public charging point costs more than gasoline.

Well, if she doesn’t have a dedicated charging spot, I would presume that she probably uses free chargers whenever possible, and even at a rate of $0.22 a kWh (what SMUD charges to use their Level3 station) it’s cheaper than gas around here (but I’m in California, so that may be a factor)

Mean while in in Australia the response to having an excess electrical power generation and rapidly increasing oil imports is to:

1 – form groups who spend millions of dollars to lobby politicians

2 – Send more troops to the middle east

There’s an idea forming in my head about how we could possibly boost our economy whilst, reducing national medical costs, whilst reducing our dependance on foreign oil, snapping our electrical generators out of the “death spiral”….. now hang on, oh its gone,

Too bad Georgia power promotes canards that are oversimplifications.

1). My Volt is much more complicated than the Overcomplicated ICE car, and yet, it should be much less money to maintain than my very costly to maintain roadster, of which most of the ’18 moving parts’ seemingly have needed to be replaced. In fairness, there are many more ‘moving parts’ than the 18 he mentions. I’ll agree that the ‘transmission’ in the VOlt is simpler.

2). My ‘efficient’ Roadster needs much more electricity during the wintertime than my ‘inefficient Volt’. This is true even if you add in the gasoline thats is used in the wintertime. But we wouldn’t want to confuse the issue with the truth.

I’ve tried to broach the issue about Prime Movers, but even some of the InsideEvs writers said I was nuts because they didn’t understand. Hence, 1 and 2 above.
