“Plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) owners are altering the ways they fuel their cars. Rather than a 15-minute visit to a gas station, most PEV owners recharge while at home and plugged-in during the night. To charge them at home overnight, drivers can choose a Level One or Level Two charger option. The decision is based on preference, needs and costs or install. Level Two chargers refuel PEVs much faster than Level One, but require higher installation costs. In some instances, Level One charging doesn’t have installation costs. Level One charging requires a 110/120-volt outlet, the 3-prong plug-type available in some parking areas. It requires 15 amps of steady load to charge roughly 5 miles per hour. 78% of PEV drivers average 15-45 miles of daily driving, which requires 3 to 8 hours of Level One charging.

Level 2 charging requires a 208/240-volt outlet & charges PEVs must faster: 3.3 kW (30 amps) to 19.2 kW (100 amps). Most vehicles currently on the market are only capable of using 30 amps for 3.3 or 6.6 kW charging with a charge rate varying at 8-24mph. Level Two charging is preferred for early buyers of PEVs. The important consideration when selecting charge levels in an MUD environment is the electrical load requirements. The Level One load is smaller, close to a microwave. Level 2 charging will generate a significant new load for the property. In both cases, an owner or renter should hire an electrician to estimate the capacity of the property and to determine if it could be supported.  Single-family homeowners, unlike MUDS, usually have sufficient capacity to support overnight charging and the install of the charging equipment (electric vehicle equipment or EVSE) is a simpler cost and process. The costs of installing EVSE in a MUD parking area may vary greatly and possibly be cost prohibitive. Costs occur at 2 stages of installation:

  • Investing in sufficient electrical capacity to support the additional load of PEV charging: Electrical upgrades, at either within the panel or utility service level, can add installation costs depending on the configuration of the property & the utility that services it.
  • Connecting the EVSE to the property’s electrical system: To obtain electricity to the EVSE, wiring is run through via an electrical panel to the PEV parking spot. Costs maybe significant as the distance between the 2 increases.”  The full article is available here.

On December 21, 2016, Tanvir Arfi reported the following on Collision Mag:  “We are used to change in the auto scrap and recycling market, but things seem to be accelerating. There will supposedly be over 200 new electric & hybrid autos in the next couple years. Autonomous cars may be coming soon too. Where is the automotive scrap industry headed? The newer vehicles will have over 80 micro control units within them. Some of which may be recording information, but there’s an snowballing trend towards conveying that data directly to interested people. Telematics is not really new, but the number of autos being retailed with connectivity already built-in just increased dramatically over the last few years. A car that has OEM gateway feeds info directly from the auto to the OEM. This data is tremendously valuable to the OEM, and to insurance providers and the repair shops.

The number of autos sold featuring these has climbed to 7.8% in 2016. That’s a big climb in just a few years, but it isn’t done. Projections of this trend indicate it will rise to 53.3% by 2020 and will continue to rise. Let me assure you, this information will be put to use. Looking at insurance, we can expect to see somewhere between 60 and 120M usage-based insurance policies by 2020, a growth rate of between 60 and 70%. For repairers, this wealth of data has numerous benefits. In addition to receiving a first-notice-of-lose within minutes or second, they’ll be able to determine a total loss nearly immediately. The decision will be largely automated, thanks to the enormous amount of data that the systems will be able to draw on. This has advantages, certainly, but it’s also disruptive to the industries concerned, and that includes automotive recycling. We’re going to see things change, rapidly, if we are prepared for that change or not.

Big data and the growth of telematics are an important factor, but far from the only thing we must consider. We have also seen a veritable explosion of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Many of you may have some of this technology in your car right now, including adaptive cruise control, lane shift assist, limited self-driving capabilities such as Tesla’s Autopilot, blind spot monitoring /assist, park assist, 360-degree sensors, reverse camera and sensors & brake assist systems.”  The complete article is available at this link.

Ohio Struggling with Recycling

We are here and ready for you to sell a car for cash in Montgomery, Mifflin, or New Rome, OH. Those looking for a spot to sell a junk car for fast cash in Lake Darby, Whitehall, or Worthington, should call us. Where is a good place to sell an old car in the regions of Lockbourne, Marble Cliff, and Harrisburg, OH? Believe it or not, even a totaled car has some kind of salvageable value in Riverlea, Urbancrest, and Minerva Park, OH. When deciding where to scrap a car in Franklin County, be sure to check that the recycler is an advocate for the environment.

An October 2016 article in The Courier by Denise Grant states: “Lorain County’s recycling program, which includes the recycling of glass bottles, is common for Ohio, according to the state EPA. The focus is the public’s resolve to recycle in the first place, according to Keith Bailey, the existing director of the Lorain County Solid Waste District, a veteran of over thirty years in the industry. There are places for both private and public sectors in environmental recycling. In Hancock County, the recycling program’s first, Litter Landing, is running at a $300K annual loss. It has an archaic baler for cardboard and plastics; works with an aging glass crusher; and annually ships roughly 200 tons of various glass products over to Pennsylvania. Mixed glass rides along for free because it has zero value.

Litter Landing isn’t accepting glass anymore and Hancock County’s recycling program is on life-support. With residents totaling 300,000, nearly (4) times that of Hancock County, Lorain County (LC) handled 5,234 tons of glass in 2014.  LC’s solid waste coordination plan is more than just gathering junk in a bin for shipping elsewhere. A good plan is said to be the best starting point for making adjustments. There is a theory that we’re making money selling recyclables. Many of the recycleable material needs be subsidized. Most of LC’s recycling is done with mobile roll-off bins, with materials processed by private companies. The county facilitates all hazardous waste, as the private sector has been reluctant to do so. LC officials have been occupied with the EPA to find a major glass processor, like Rumpke Consolidated Companies, which is a bit closer (in Dayton). Fees which are collected by the Hancock County Landfill are purposed to balance out recycling losses.  Glass is just difficult to handle and costs labor. A tractor-trailer load of clean brown or clear glass has value of only $200.

EPA officials Marie Barnett, Ernie Stall & Chet Chaney talked about resuming glass recycling, but growing it to include bottles from businesses. Rumpke is one of the US’ bigger privately-held waste recyclers. They are capable of handling 80,000 tons of glass annually. They could offer a market for Hancock County’s glass & limit handling concerns.   In 2014, Litter Landing had operating expenses totaling $436,930.   In 2015, the deficit nearly doubled.” The complete article can be viewed at http://thecourier.com/local-news/2016/10/01/state-epa-to-evaluate-county-recycling-program/

You can sell a car for cash

When trying to sell an old car there is consideration whether it is easier to just scrap it and have it towed away in Perry, Plain, or Sharon. A totaled car in Lincoln Village, Amlin, or Clinton may still have some residual value, particularly if it is less than (10) years old.
