How will our grid handle the addition of EV’s to our transportation infrastructure?

    The addition of EVs will be fairly gradual, so will pose no risk to overwhelming the grid.  The only concern is if there is a “cluster” of EV’s in one neighborhood.  In this case, the transformer used to power that neighborhood may need to be upgraded.  This is actually quite normal for electric companies, as household electricity use is always inching upwards with introductions of new household technologies.  There will also be incentives to charge at off-peak times, such as at night.  There is actually a surplus of energy available then, so electric companies would love to sell it to consumers.

    Utility companies are not concerned about the addition of EVs harming the grid, and are excited to sell “fuel” for your car.
