Boy, I missed all the excitement here yesterday... Put me in the camp that says until you can have a reliable grid to prevent rolling blackouts, they shouldn't be promoting the electrification of our transportation system. All the money spent subsidizing (state and federal rebates/tax credits for the purchase of electric vehicles) the electrification of the transportation system should have been utilized to improve the grid. Kind of like putting the cart in front of the horse. Horses can pull extremely well, but they don't push worth a darn.
