there won't be much difference between being at the mercy of oil companies , or being at the mercy of electric companies.
Because of full EV cars that average 23 KWh (hybrids are significantly less)?

That's the equivalent of 23 100 watt lightbulbs (or appliances in similar wattage) being on for 10 hours. It's really not that much.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.  3365
