Load Shifting With Electric Vehicles is a Great Match to Wind in Many Areas

Much of the best wind resource in the country peaks at night time.  To date this has proven challenging for the Texas electricity grid management.  It has been resolved somewhat due to transmission grid upgrades but still promises to limit wind power development in Texas.  Electric Vehicles, together with night time charging rates may create a path to much higher amounts of wind power being added to the Texas utility grid.  If Time of Use Metering us utilized, the car owner’s cost of ownership decreases.  This is in contrast to V2G scenarios which reduce battery lifetime.  In other words this is a way that the utilities can get lots of storage essentially for free.
