    The article is just stating what most of us already know. If the utilities implement appropriate mechanisms and enticements for people to charge their cars with the minimum impact on the grid, the grid will need very little new resources to support very large numbers of electric vehicles.

    True, but the WSJ is nit noted for an accurate appraisal, especially as BEV's are being accused of being catastrophic for utilities.

    If you're here, you're exceptional. The rest of the world still thinks Wind and Solar and batteries cost today what they cost 20 years ago.

    The article is locked behind a paywall, so unable to comment further.
