Obama Forces Military To Purchase Electric Vehicles
And justifies using unicorn farm economics.
The Department of Defense quietly announced in January that the next step in making the military more eco-friendly would entail spending $20 million to purchase electric vehicles to help offset power usage at Defense Department installations.
The Pentagon expects to lease up to 500 electric vehicles at six different installations later this year, with each vehicle costing between $30,000 to $100,000. When idle, these vehicles would deliver power back to a grid in order to help offset the military’s power usage.
Some projections show that revenue from power that is returned from the grid could completely offset the cost of the vehicles.
