Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from a lifetime of experience and from research, more science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. Globalization or Democracy documents the historical roots of Oligarchy, the road to colonialism and tyranny

Energy Equivalence

33.7 KW hour of electricity = one gallon of gas

@ .03 $ per KW hour, electricity would cost $10.11 = one gallon. Electric motors are more efficient than gasoline, however.

Electric motor > 85%

ICE <40%

ยง >45%

$10.11 -45% = $5.90 

However, in most areas, electricity costs are mich lower than in California or Alaska, say $0.15 per KW hour. ($2.95)

Electricity costs an average of $0.16 per KW hour in Denver
