Would that same argument conversely apply to an aerodynamic electric vehicle driving faster? If you can drive 100mph and only consume an additional 20% kWh, and get that from solar panels, energy consumption is irellavant?
As an aside, on average only 2% of the power going into those batteries comes from panels in the US (the solar leader in the world)....unless it's charged at night...then, it's almost zero....The facts are that wind and solar power combined is just 5% of grid output away from being a myth and virtually not a factor during night time charging. In Terawatts the small amount of Russian oil that we imported in 2021 was greater than the energy output of all panels and propellers in the US combined (434 Twh vs. 410 Twh). Just saying.
