Re: Greenwashing

So we should wait on electric cars, trucks, taxis, and planes until 100% of electricity production in the US is renewable?

Point of use emissions matter too, especially in big cities where air quality is a concern. That and the reduced noise would make replacing helicopter use around cities a pretty big win even if the overall emissions are roughly the same as they were before.

The grid will continue to become more renewable over time, making this cleaner over time even if you assume it is just taking random grid power, rather than the facility it flies out of installing solar panels to offset the power it uses for charging.

Assuming they can deliver on what they're promising, of course.
