Biden Energy Secretary's EV Trip Leads to 911 Call

Biden administration Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm's electric vehicle trip didn't go as planned, including a 911 call over her team blocking an EV charging station.

The audio from the 911 call was released following earlier reports of the police call concerning the incident.

“I’m calling because I’m in the Grovetown Walmart at the charging station and there’s literally a non-electric car that is taking up a space and said they’re holding the space for somebody else,” the woman said to the 911 dispatcher. “And it’s holding up a whole bunch of people who need to charge their cars.”

“There are other people who are waiting to charge and they’re still here and they’re not in electric cars,” she continued. “The sign says you can’t park here unless you’re charging.”

"Granholm during that tour drove an EV from South Carolina to Athens, Georgia, planning to stop at a public charging station outside of Augusta, Georgia, on the way. Before Granholm's arrival, the energy secretary's advance staff realized the station would not be able to accommodate Granholm and her caravan—one charger was broken and others were in use," the Free Beacon reported.

"A Granholm staffer subsequently used a gas-powered car to block drivers from accessing the station's only available charger until Granholm's arrival, prompting one family to call the police in an attempt to compel the staffer to move, NPR reported Sunday," it added.

The incident revealed an embarrassing situation for the energy secretary who was set to prove the efficiency of using her electric vehicle.

Instead, Granholm showed that the country is not ready for the Biden administration's push for more EV cars, with the infrastructure lacking the charging stations for even a small number of cars.

The issue adds to other concerns over the Biden administration's EV push, including the high prices of vehicles and maintenance that are far beyond the means of most Americans.

Granholm's 911 audio highlights the embarrassment even more, making the details in the situation even more important for Americans interested in what happened.
