We can build solar panels or wind turbinesUK average solar input is 100 W/sq m so to recharge one electric car at a time at anything like a sensible rate, you need at least 1000 square meters of garage roof space, plus sufficient battery storage to cope with the cars that arrive at night (up to 20 hours in the north of Scotland) or when the wind isn't blowing.
The real fun begins when there is a queue of battery cars at a single "pump". If each takes 40 minutes to refuel, it's probably quicker to walk. Fights will break out. The electric car is the beginning of the end of civilisation.
