California Rail Electrification - 2021 Update
- Jul 27, 2021 3:14 pm GMT
This paper will use portions of a similar paper I posted in 2019, but contain enough new information to justify posting as a new comprehensive report. We (California) continue to move forward at a slow, steady pace. As in many things, we do not do this because we choose to, but because we must.
The California High Speed Rail System (HSR) is an important part of our state's efforts to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. Currently, there is a huge amount of travel between the San Francisco Bay Area and the Los Angeles Area, and this is exclusively by auto or airlines. Although there are efforts to reduce the greenhouse gas from both of these transports, a viable rail system (powered by 100% renewable energy) between these two areas will contribute mightily to this effort.
I seem to be settling in to around monthly “EV…” posts. One excuse for this post was a good article from Forbes on new EVs from next year and later.
